An Alternative to Paper Towels- Saving Your Wallet and the Environment

Paper towels are very convenient when cleaning up messes around the house- just rip off the amount you need and toss it in the trash when you’re done. Throughout the day, you can go through a roll or more. A roll or more a day can have you flying through packs and spending more at the store than you’d like. By using different types of cloths in place of paper towels, you can achieve a money saving and environmentally friendly clean.

Our personal favorite for all purpose cleaning is a bar mop towel. Bar mop towels are absorbent, and have some abrasion in order to help you clean messes big or small. These versatile cloths come in two sizes: standard (16in x 19in) and petite (12in x 12in). They are helpful to keep around the sink to help dry dishes and absorb water. The minor abrasion and durability make them great for many non-kitchen surfaces as well as window sills and wood furniture.

Reversible terry towels come in a close second here. They have an abrasive side and a cloth side making them very similar to the bar mop. They can help decorate your kitchen or bathroom with their designs while offering great flexibility while cleaning. Because of the two different textures, they are a little thicker and can be a bit more absorbent than the bar mops.

Microfiber cloths are great for dusting and polishing around your house. They are able to be rinsed out while using, but aren’t as absorbent as our first two entries. Microfiber cloths don’t have much abrasion, so it may be difficult to get tough stains up off countertops, but they do trap dirt very well. These towels make cleaning windows and stainless steel a breeze.

All of these towels may be reused and machine washed as directed on the tags, making it easier on your wallet and the environment. While the convenience of paper towels cannot fully be replaced, these alternatives can help reduce their use within your home.
