I have paper towels, but every time I use one I feel a little "guilty." It's like throwing pennies in the trash. Somehow it just doesn't seem right.
Here is what I did. I cut the hems off of the old towels on all four sides and then cut each towel in half, zig-zagged the raw edges and voila! Un-paper towels. They will live in this little basket in the cupboard under our kitchen sink. I'm sure there will be some times I will still use "real" paper towels, but most of the time will opt for the washable ones.
Oh, yes, here is my clean laundry room. :)
