Remember how I really love our cloth diapers (here)? And how I cried real tears when Little Lady potty trained herself out of them (here)?
Well... I didn't actually get rid of all the BumGenius 4.0 pocket diapers with snaps. Shhhh....
I kept a purple one for the baby memory boxes.
But I also kept all the newborn absorber inserts because I noticed long ago that they are the exact same size as the Swiffer duster head.
I've been plotting for months to make these re-usable Swiffer covers and finally found thirty minutes to do it!
I only made five covers to start with. I sewed elastic straps to the diaper inserts and ¡viola! They fit right on.
I can sweep to my heart's content, toss them in the wash, and re-use them.
It's one more step to using less paper at our house since we started using cloth napkins a year ago (here) and haven't looked back.
We'll see what paper-less idea I have in store for next year...
