Saving Money on Paper Towels

I was one that enjoyed using my sewing machine a few years back. At this moment it sits in the closet. I am unable to use it due to pain in my hands. I was working on changing my life to become better with waste and money saving.

I wish I could use old rags from clothing but I can't. I have found something that works for me and it's great. I use a cloth that is absorbent and can be washed. More absorbent than any rag I can make with my bare hands anyway.

They are handy shammys for those that are not able to sew old rags.
These are used and tossed in the washer. If need be, add a bucket under your sink until wash day. I have shared a few and some have shared the love of the idea and the savings. I hope you do too.

The frugal lady does.

The days of wasting paper towels is really terrible. But that is only my thinking. Thanks for reading.

Another savings is to use cloth napkins instead of serviettes. I find the napkin comes large, so I cut them in half and sew the edges. I put them in a bucket and soak them on washing day with detergent and bleach. Then wash them with my whites. No extra expense.

I have never bought a cloth napkin in my life. I will check that out. I would need to see if they absorb like these cloths I use..


I would do anything to save for sure. I am guessing I could check walmart for clearance sales. thank you

The surplus store in my area sells packs of 20 microfiber cloths for $5.99. In the pack, 10 are yellow and 10 are blue. I use the yellow ones in the kitchen and the blue ones for general household use. They're washed with my regular laundry and never seem to wear out; I can't even remember when I bought the last pack.

do they have an online site> I find mine at the dollarstore. They are beady so I don't like it. I like these cloths because they don't tear up.
