Tip: Use Real Napkins and Dishcloths

Instead of purchasing and tossing paper napkins and paper towel invest in a one-time purchase of basic napkins and dishcloths.

Cotton napkins are really easy to make with a sewing machine, a square of fabric (between 12 and 16" square or so), and a zig-zag stitch around the edges. They can also be purchased at Target,, or any other linen source very inexpensively.

Terry towels can be purchased in a dozen set for about $7 in the automotive section at WalMart, where the car washing supplies are. I purchase mine at Ikea for a couple dollars and cut them in half. Smaller pieces work great for cleaning counters and wiping things, are less cumbersome, easier to hang, and dry more quickly.

Better for the pocketbook and better for the environment. Win-win.
