For the homemade duster refills...
Susie and Mrs. Doug both asked about how to make these dusters. I followed these instructions. The instructions are great as are the diagrams. It's suggested to use a microfiber cloth to make these (so you can just toss them in the washing machine), but I had none on hand so I just made up my prototype using a generic type of dry refill for the swiffer-type mop. It works well but I think the microfiber is really the way to go. If you scroll down through the comments on the tutorial, you'll see that one person suggests stitching down the center of the refill to make it stay on the handle better. I did that, but didn't stitch quite all the way down so that the little clip on the handle will hold it in place more easily. Hope this is helpful to you!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
