It didn’t occur to me that being paper towel-less is something to be smug about. Actually, being paper towel-less didn’t occur to me, it just kind of happened. My mother-in-law gave us a ton of old towels for the dogs including smaller, paper towel sized ones and we also have a stack of worn-out facecloths we keep for kitchen spills. After that, we just kind of stopped buying them.
A lot of people have told me that I can’t have kids without paper towels, but I think they’re wrong. I don’t like using flimsy pieces of paper to clean up messes, and I don’t mind washing a load of dirty rags once a week.
A few commenters in this article on Re-Nest mentioned that being paper towel-less is an eco-holier-than-thou kind of thing to do, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it to me (my bio-degradable laundry soap, however, makes me way better than you.)
Check it out and tell me what you think. And am I going to have to succumb to the paper towels once I’m living without a washer and dryer?
