Our results:

I made a homemade swiffer duster using both fleece and micro fiber cloths. The first one that I tried was the fleece. It did okay, I don’t think that it worked near as good as the original swiffer duster though. The second one that I tested was the microfiber one. This was hands down better than the fleece one. My only complaint on the microfiber one is when you cut it. When I cut mine all of the little blue fibers came flying off. My table and my kitchen floor was covered with it. However I don’t feel that this was that big of a deal for how much better it cleans than the fleece one.
