Day 8/30 Less Waste Challenge: Ditch the Paper Towels
Paper towels are totally a convenience item and are not necessary. I thought you had to use them for washing windows and mirrors (you don't- a cloth rag or newspaper works fine) and I thought they were necessary for all things in the kitchen-spills, preventing messes in the microwave, wiping the counter, as a napkin, and I'm sure so many others. But it turns out a kitchen towel works just as well! Sure it means I go through them a bit more but then I have a full load of laundry to make sure I am using my washing machine efficiently! We haven't bought any in months now and I don't miss them at all.
