Last year my daughter, Tiffany bought me a bunch of inexpensive thin microfiber cloths that I could use with my Swiffer Sweeper. I was skeptical at first, but soon discovered that they work really well on our laminate flooring. I've always felt that disposable Swiffer paper sheets are awfully expensive and add to our landfill.
Tif bought the microfiber sheets cut to size for Swiffers at an Asian market in Illinois. I can't find them in Hawaii even though it's a Japanese product. I couldn't read the Japanese directions so I showed them to my mother. Mom said I wasn't supposed to put them in the washer or dryer, but needed to hand wash and dry them on the line. Tif said she's been sticking them in her washer and dryer with no problem. I don't understand why there should be a problem since I've seen other microfiber cloths that say you can put them in the washer and dryer.
Whatever the case, I just bat the dust off them against something outside the house, pull off the hair it's collected and wash them. It's been working great so far. Whenever they wear out, I'll just buy more microfiber material and cut them to size.
Meanwhile, Tif is keeping her eyes open so I can have even more backup cloths. I wonder why some company hasn't manufactured them for the U.S.
