You probably are seeing a pattern…I have spring on my mind! The weather is GORGEOUS! I am lovin’ it!
And with spring comes spring cleaning (at least I grew up with spring cleaning). As you know, Steve and I have hard wood floors and we LOVE our steam mop. Ethne swears by the Haan Duo Steam Mop and I do like my Bissel Steam Mop.
The problem is that the mop came with two steam mop pads (and of course, I have misplaced one). And that leaves me with one. And, you guessed it, I HATE laundry, so it really doesn’t work very well.
I had a plan to make my own mop pad…I hit my stash and found fleece. PERFECT! And, I am saving money!
I simply traced the original disgusting pad and created a pattern.
I then cut the fabric out as well as a 2½ inch strip. From there, I sewed the strip to the pattern base.
I then folded down the strip and sewed to create a pocket for my elastic. I then threaded it through.
And, it works perfect. Total cost under $3.00! And I plan to make more!
