Paper Towels as Packing Material

When packing household item to move I use paper towels, the recycled kind. When I unpack, I reuse the paper towels for cleaning jobs!

Good idea! But, always ensure that you do not use the paper towels to handle food after they have been used as packing material!

What about plastic bags you get from places like WalMart and the grocery store? Cheaper.

I used 1 sheet between each plate, then wrapped the stack in clingfilm, no breakages. :-)) I, then, reused the paper for mopping up spills etc. Nothing wasted! Plastic bags are not bio-degradable; the clingfilm squashes up into small pieces.

Sure beats newspaper, which gets the ink all over everything!

I should have added that, best of all, the crockery doesn't need washing after unpacking!
