I hardly ever buy paper towels any more. Instead, I buy packages of handi wipes from the dollar store. I buy a package of 8-10 for a dollar. I can use them for all my cleaning and in the kitchen and they last a long time. I just rinse them out and reuse. This has saved me a lot of money.
Auto supply store and stores like Walmart carry "shop towels" in a roll. They are blue and packaged like paper towels but I use them instead of Handi-wipes. They are thicker than Handi-wipes, and, like them, can be rinsed (I've even machine washed them by mistake...and they held together). I use Handi-wipes in the kitchen, but shop towels for all the cleaning when I don't want to use rags (that last even longer).
