Reusing Paper Towels

How often do we dry our hands after washing or wipe water off something with a paper towel and then throw it away? A girlfriend gave me this tip: paper towels used for wiping up or drying water and be reused for other, dirtier cleanup jobs, such as cleaning the bathroom, wiping up spills on the floor, etc. Then throw them away.

My second tip for paper towels is to cut them in half. I buy the “select-a-size”, take a dozen sheets or so and cut them in half for small spills, or to rest my teaspoon on in the mornings when my family has coffee. When we're all done, I wash the spoon and use the little piece of paper towel to wipe any remaining drips.

I do notice I'm using far less than I used to.
