How to Make Reusable Mop Pads
What You’ll Need
- 1 Pack of our VELCRO® Brand Sew On Tape
- Our DIY Mop Pattern (Dry Dust Mop or Wet Mop)
- ½ Yard of Flannel
- One old hand towel
What To Do
First – print and cut out the mop pattern and attach both pieces.
Next, fold your hand towel in half (lengthwise) and place the pattern on the fabric. Using a permanent marker, trace your pattern. Then cut it out! Repeat this step with the flannel fabric.
Now comes the fun part! Sew your pieces together, leaving a ¼ inch inseam and a small gap to turn out.
Once you’ve sewn the pieces together, turn out your mop pad, and sew your VELCRO® Brand Sew On Tape to the ends of your mop pad. Make sure it closes properly and sew the hook to the opposite side and face of the loop. One side of the fastener should be sewn to the towel side, while the opposite side of the fastener should be sewn to the flannel fabric.
Finally, attach your finished reusable mop pad to your mop, and you’re good to go! Happy cleaning!
