Use white cotton napkins instead of paper napkins. They're easy to wash, and can be bleached if required. They don't have to be washed every single day. We each have a different napkin ring so we know which one is ours.
When eating pizza I have found that taking clean paper napkins and gently blotting the top of your pizza will wick up a fair amount of oils .
