Giveaway by Domestically Green (this giveaway is now closed)

OK, I'm just going to tell you now that Domestically Green has me hooked and these reusable swiffer pads!!! Sampler Village (since I know you read this), you need to get ahold of this shop because these things are amazing! Did I tell you I'm hooked?


Domestically Green sent me 3 of these to try out and before I could even get them out of the package my kids were begging to clean because they have monkey's on them. Now if you are a mom you know that anything that gets your kids excited to clean is something you want to have.


OK, I'm about to be totally embarrassed but I want to show you how much dog hair this thing picked up off of a floor that looked clean.



Can you believe that? Let me just say that I will not be buying the ones from the store anymore and these are even fun and colorful. For $10 you get 3 of these and when they are dirty you just throw them in the wash and reuse them.

Let's see what Domestically Green has to say about their shop:


When did you open your Etsy shop? I opened my shop in August 2009

Can you tell me a little about yourself? I am a stay at home mom to 3 little kids. Before I had kids I was a CPA and after my 2nd was born, my husband and I decided it was best for our family for me to stay home and raise our kids. That was when I started to look for ways to save money and also ways for our family to be more green. It was amazing how different I looked at everything, including our planet, after our kids were born. Part of saving money and going green included switching to reusable handmade products - wool dryer balls, swiffer pads, reusable snack bags, etc. We've also gone mostly paper towelless here as well and I'm hoping to start selling some reusable paper towels in my store at some point too.



Can you tell my readers about your swiffer pads? My reusable swiffer pads are designed to be used with a swiffer duster mop (or pledge grab-it mop). They are made of 2 layers - one is a cotton flannel in a cool design and the other side is a coordinating soft fleece. Both of these fabrics work wonders at sweeping up loose crumbs, dust, hair, etc. Think of babies crawling around on the floor in fleece or flannel pants....their knees are usually covered so quickly with what they "sweep" up as they are crawling around. These are great because you no longer have to buy boxes of disposable pads that just get one use and end up in the trash. I've had a set of reusable swiffer pads that I made about 2 years ago that are still going strong! And to give you an idea of how often they are used - I'm a swiffer freak because I've had crawling babies for almost 4 years straight now and my entire house is hardwood floors!


We are hooked on dryer balls in our home, can you explain them to my readers? My wool dryer balls are made from 100% wool yarn. They contain no chemicals or hazardous materials. They are about the size of a tennis ball and are felted a few times during the process. You can use as little as 2 dryer balls in your dryer at a time, but I have found them to much more effective when you have 6-8 balls in your dryer. As the balls are circulated in the dryer, they separate your clothes to allow the warm air from the dryer get to all articles of clothing. The more dryer balls that you add to your dryer, the faster your clothes will dry. In addition, the friction created by the felted wool being rubbed against your clothing helps to cut down on static cling and soften your clothes. The more dryer balls that you add to your dryer, the softer your clothes get.

I love the wool dryer balls because there are no chemicals in them (like dryer sheets - that can irritate sensitive skin or leave a film of build-up on your lint screen) and they work great with cloth diapers as well!


Buy It - If you have bought any of the ones disposable ones from the store then you know that you are saving a bundle by using these reusable ones.

Win It - Domestically Green is giving away a set of these amazing swiffer pads to one of my readers in your choice of print from their shop. This giveaway is open to my readers in the US and Canada.

The Duster Mop sets are a great idea. I hate buying the throw away swiffer cloths - too expensive and such a waste. The "patchwork" pattern is my fav.
