This is an example of how you can save on paper towels from LivingSoAbundantly.com
Yes, I use dish cloths for paper towels. Not only does it save money but it is better for the environment!
What do I do with my dirty “paper towels?” I keep a basket under my sink to hold my kitchen helpers until wash day. If a cloth is too wet, I ring it out thoroughly and let it hang over the side to air dry so as to not create mildew. It’s simple but helpful.
