    This made me laugh…my mother is constantly bringing over paper towels to my house when she watches my boys. My FIL brings over napkins. It’s hard for them to accept I’m trying my hardest to refrain. I love the suggestions…SKOY clothes are my favourite replacement.

    My husband dried clean dishes with paper towels when I met him (as his mom still does). We love SKOY cloths too and now reserve paper towels for greasy messes and vomit. We use about 2-3 rolls a year I’d guess. Took a while to get there though: http://www.eco-novice.com/2013/11/six-simple-steps-to-paperless-kitchen.html

    I am a former junkie as well and think every day about relapsing….especially when people let stinky wet rags hang around all over the place!

    I am a paper towel user, I confess! The good news is I do used recycled paper towels, great to see that using recycled content DOES matter. Now to using less in the first place!

    I used a combination of dish towels and rags to clean up. We rarely use paper towels and if we do, I compost them.

    PS love the image on top of the post.
