You know you got it bad when... notice that the swiffer duster refill has an interesting crimp structure.  The outside white part is reminiscent of English long wools with a more open crimp, while the blue inner fibers are very Merino-like with a fine, tighter crimp.

I've been spending a lot of time lately learning about wool structure and working with raw fleece, and I think it's showing when I dissect a cleaning tool because it reminds me of wool and I consider what it might be like to spin the blue swiffer fibers just to see what happens.
