Today’s green living tip: ditch your paper towels. Are you thinking, “Say what? But how will clean? How will I wipe?” Easy. Find some cute wash cloths that match your kitchen decor and a basket to stash them in. Put these in place of your paper towels.
Start by hiding your paper towels. This will start to break the habit we all have of grabbing a paper towel when there’s a spill or we need to dry our hands. Once the paper towels are out of sight and they’re replaced with hand towels or wash cloths, everyone will get used to the new routine. Trust me, if my family can do it, every family can!
You’ll know that you have your paper towels hidden in case of emergency or for when you need a cloth for really greasy cooking – like bacon – but the paper towels can remain hidden. And, our little secret.
Do you hide paper products? Are you trying to limit paper towel use, too?
