Thank You Arielluria. I really love this idea. Much better than the ones you have to buy.

The dishcloth cottons will fade when bleached, but the white would be good.

I was thinking microfiber might be good..it's soft and isn't microfiber good for picking up dust? Seems like they have microfiber cloths and such..maybe they are treated though?

That sounds like a great idea! I have some microfiber towel that I use in the kitchen, and they're great at picking up dust.

I'm definitely going to snag some microfiber yarn soon - I definitely use a lot of Swiffer cloths around my place.

Ohh what a great idea!

I wonder if you knit it in garter stitch longways if the ridges would help pick up stuff. :thinking:

I'm wondering how they'll hold up if you use them wet. Cotton stretches pretty good when wet and I scrub pretty hard. The middle area seems to just hang there, I wonder if you could make straps or something for stability....

Ditto. I found this, so here's not what to do

It's really cute though. I love the colors on that one!

:thinking: Hmmm...the Swiffer in the original pattern doesn't look like a WetJet, which is what I have. I wonder if you knit it small, wet it so it stretches, put it on, and leave it there, if that would work?
