For general cleaning, I use worn out kitchen towels. They are great for dusting, getting into corners, and behind the faucets in kitchen and bathroom. They can be washed and reused several times.
Also, in the summer I hang my laundry on a clothes line to dry. Make sure you bring in colors as soon as they dry. You don't want them to fade. As for the whites, you won't believe the freshness and brightness the sun gives them or your savings on electricity!
