To make a homemade paper plate, place a paper towel over a plate or saucer. Have a sandwich, cheese and crackers, or those cookies we all love. Remove your paper towel revealing your clean plate. Then dust off any crumbs from your paper towel and replace your clean plate. You can even use your paper towel to wipe off your your counter tops if it is not soiled.

Save the expense of running your dishwasher so often.

If you forget paper plates when going on picnics I use sandwich bags as plates. They are clean and I carry a lot with me to use for many things. Even in motels we take snacks with us when we travel.
