I use washcloths to clean up spills instead of paper towels whenever possible. This saves a lot of money and the washcloths can just be washed when doing laundry. Try it! You'd be amazed.

This is a great idea. I do it myself and nowadays I never buy paper towels.
I buy bundles of facecloths when I see them on sale and keep stacks in each bathroom and in a draw in the kitchen. I also just throw them into the wash with other dirty whites.
I do the same thing and you can often find them at the dollar store in packs of half a dozen :-) Thanks for sharing this environmently friendly and frugal tip!

Keep the wash cloths in a small container with a bit of bleach added to the water.

It is not really fugal to use cloths in place of paper towels. The detergents and extra water consumed are harder on our environment than recycled paper.
