Have you ever thought about how many paper towels you use in an average day? It’s probably a lot more than you think. Consider these tips to help reduce your paper towel use, and save money.
- Reinvent your old t-shirts, sweatshirts, pajama pants, bath towels, beach towels, sheets and socks – turn them into reusable rags. Then spill, wipe, rinse, wash, and reuse – it’s that simple.
- Buy cloth napkins and use them with every meal. Bring your family shopping with you, and have each member choose their favorite. Consider buying two sets, just in case one is in the wash.
- If you absolutely must purchase paper towels, reach for the ones made from recycled content and make sure to put them in your compost pail afterwards!
