A Paper Towel-less Life

Pin it button big

Maybe it's just us, but we don't use paper towels in our home. When guests are hanging out in the kitchen, they're always shocked that we don't have a roll on hand. We think it started out as thriftiness first thing out of school. But now we continue a paper towel-less life...

Over the years we've found we simply don't need them. We use washable cloths and towels in place of them for everything from cleaning up the countertop to washing windows. And we now realize that we're happy to reduce the amount of disposables coming out of our household. Nonetheless, it never fails to shock our guests that we don't keep a roll of Bounty out on the counter. Anyone else out there doing without paper towels and not missing them?
