Are You Tired Of Paying For Those Expensive Duster Refills?

And that's why I created my Spiffer permanent alternatives to those duster and sweeper/mop refills. I was sick of throwing cash in the trash!

The Spiffers aresuitable for crocheters with easy to Intermediate ability. It uses a stitch pattern I created called Rag Stitch. It's a different and fun pattern to make. If you have questions, my email is provided with the pattern.

Your pattern(s) will be delivered to you via email in an Acrobat (PDF) file. Hard copies are available for a small charge. Of course you can print out your pattern yourself too.

To order, scroll down to the "Get Yours Today!" section.

Thank you for visiting my lens and have an amazing day!

What You Will Need

To Make Your Spiffer

You'll need one ball of your choice of yarn for either Spiffer. I really recommend either Sugar & Cream or Bernat Handicrafter Cotton for durability.

What Do You Think Of This Pattern? - Come On, You Can Tell Me!

How does seeing the Spiffer pattern make you feel?

Just A Yarn Suggestion...

You might want to make at least one of these in 100% cotton white yarn.. that way you can throw them in your bleach load to keep them sparkly clean.

I created my prototype of the mop in different colors so that the rows could be visualized easily.

Suggested Gift Ideas - Everybody Needs One! Or Several!

Tuck one or two into a housewarming basket.

Holiday gifts for family and friends

Put into a "Make Your Life Easier" theme gift basket

A Suggestion...

If you want your Spiffer to be bleachable, do it in white cotton. These are machine washable and dryable - or you can just air-dry.

Keep An Extra On Hand!

You might want to make one or two extra of each Spiffer so that you'll always have a clean one available.

      Fantastic! It bothers me that so many people create so much trash. This is one thing that can help.
