Fleece fabric scraps and used dryer sheets make this washable Swiffer type duster a perfect combination of function and recycling. The dryer sheets make the duster especially fluffy for extra dust pick-up. I have made them with just fleece fabrics in the past. The tutorial is helpful and free pattern a plus.

This is a great idea to make your own duster. I never thought to use dryer sheets but it make sense. And usually the dryer sheets have a nice smell to them even if they are used. The best thing about this is you can wash it. It will make it so much easier to dust. Thank you.

Im quite taken with this idea. The download link definitely works now and Im definitely going to give this a try. I dont, however, use a dryer so I dont have dryer sheets. Would it work to use those disposable dusting clothes instead?

I tried everything and cannot get the pdf to load. Please let me kknow how to get this pattern.

Great idea! I was looking for uses for used dryer sheets.

Like anniestackpole 7717730, I could not download the pattern. Please help,

Hi Terriest, Under the photos on the next page is a large button that says "Open PDF". Once you click on that you will be able to download the patter. I hope that helps!

I can not download this duster. When I try to download it keeps going to pinrest. I really like this pattern can you please help me. Thank You Annie

The directions I found in 2011 did not use dryer sheets, so the ones I made are just four layers of fleece, channels sewn and then snipped. They are so cute in animal prints or bright colors. But, the men in our family are somewhat ignored when it comes to Christmas, so in 2011 I made a dozen of these in baskeball, camo, UW, football and other prints for the guys. I even supplies them with handles (I kept all the disposable dusters-ha ha) These fleece dusters work great and are easy to wash. I don't dry them in the dryer though, as some fleece gets hard with heat. They air-dry quick enough.

Awesome eco-friendly project! Swiffer refills are so freaking expensive and wasteful. I have some fleece remnants I can use.

What a great money saving idea!! I can't tell you how many times I've searched for Swiffer refills at a reduced price only to find none. I will definitely be making this. Thanks!!!
