In these challenging economic times...

Dust cover 3

I recently knit a dust mop cover for my method O-Mop using Lily Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn. The yarn cost about a $1 and you can make two covers from one ball of yarn. I normally buy the bio-degradable dust cloths for the mop, so this will save a few bucks. I've used it a few times and it works just as good as the method brand. Do you have any tips for saving a few dollars in these challenging economic times (doom and gloom music plays)?

  1. What a great idea! You're so crafty :)

  2. I recommend naming it the "Mop Muff." You get three when you buy a Snuggie.
