I recently read a tip from a reader who rinsed out her paper towels to see if she could use them a little more before reaching for another towel. I believe I can do her one better. I save the old towels, washcloths, dishcloths, etc. that are too thin or ragged for their original use. They work great for dusting, scrubbing, etc. They even work with 409, Fantastik, or whatever spray cleaner you use.
I wanting to STOP BUYING paper towels but it seems to me that the cost of water and electricity to laundry rags would not justify the savings. My water bill is going up every month and my local news is saying that our water bills is estimated to go up 37 - 57% in the next few years. I use paper towels to obsorb grease when I cook bacon. Anyone have any other suggestions?
