Flat mops are incredible — after years of using a regular mop and feeling like my floor was actually getting dirtier, I finally switched to a flat mop and I couldn’t be happier with it.
The only problem is that the mop pads seem to get dirty so quickly! I love seeing that the mop pad has really picked up all the dirt and grime from my floor, but I know I’m not helping the environment — or my bank account — when I toss a dirty mop pad and buy another.
I know reusable mop covers are out there, but I don’t want to have to spend a pretty penny to get one. And now I don’t have to — instead, I’ll just make my own.
The video below shows the super simple way to make a DIY mop cover out of items I already have in my house: old T-shirts and hot glue.
And it’s machine washable! This is an ideal solution for anyone with a flat mop who wants a cheap, easy mop cover alternative.
Check out the video and instructions below to learn how to make one of your own!
- Pick out an old shirt that you want to repurpose.
- Measure an area 10 inches longer and one inch wider than your mop.
- Cut out the piece of fabric.
- Sew or hot-glue the excess fabric to form pockets.
- Slip the mop into the cover.
If you have kids, grandkids, or pets running around, this mop cover will be a godsend. And if you wear it out, you can just make another one!
