Saving Papertowels For Cleaning


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I use Bounty brand paper-towels. We have a roll in the bathroom, in the bedroom and of course in the kitchen. I try to safe the consumption of it and after I use it to dry my clean hands i leave them on the counter to dry and then collect it in a container and then use them when I clean the house!

My husband is not too crazy about it, but hey.. he is not the one doing all the cleaning and buying the papertowels!

    You may be spreading bacteria around your house. You think your hands are clean but really we touch so many surfaces everyday. Just throw the paper towel out.
