I love to reduce my carbon foot print. How do you reduce your carbon foot print? One way I do is in cleaning my home. I use reusable rags, make my own cleaning solution, and make reusable mop covers. Today I am sharing with you my free crochet pattern for making Crocheted Dry/Wet Mop Covers Using Bulky Yarn. I use a lot of Bernat Blanket Yarn in my projects. I end of with small balls of yarn and I love making mop covers with them. The yarn is great for scrubbing floors as well as washes and dries good too. I also have added Scrubby Yarn from Red Hearts in making my wet mop to give it a little extra cleaning power. It starts with creating a rectangle and then working around the rectangle to create a stretchy top that helps cover stay on.
