Another addition of "I really am that cheap".

 So, my boys love to vacuum. Like, 18 times a day. Everything is a vacuum to them. When I just can't take anymore vacuuming they move on to Swiffering. I love it when they swiffer....swiffering is silent. However, swiffering somehow uses all the facecloths in the house, 5 real Swiffer cloths and about 16 baby wipes. Mama needed to smarten up.

I took a dishtowel, a piece of fabric from the scrap bin and some buttons and sewed up a re-useable cloth that I can just throw in the washer. I have a feeling I will be making a bunch of these.

 If you want it a little more substantial you could use 2 dishtowels but I wanted something to match the buttons I was going to use. Could you think of anything more horrid than a cleaning rag not matching it's buttons? Hey, if you're gonna do something why not make it cute?!!
                                            Hey, boys!!! Mama made you something!!!

  1. And you think I"m weird for cloth diapering?! I know, I know, it's not POOP! But this is "Green" just like they are ;) I jest.
    Anywho, I like your design, I have been using washcloths also...the buttons are a good idea though!!
