google it: “Homemade Sweeping Compound”.

I used coarse sawdust, sand, liquid floor wax and mineral spirits and it worked for me.
pick a big clean spot on the floor and mix well – - – -
store in airtight plastic bag in a box. do not use it twice. one use and toss it with the trash.
(I think the sand is the abrasive that breaks loose dust that sticks to the floor).

if you have a large area to sweep, the soft bristle push broom works best.
