Sew a drawstring bag from two kitchen towels. When you wash your lettuce, you can put it in the bag and shake so that the towels absorb the moisture. The towel bag can be washed and recycled. Use this for washing grapes too! 140277
I always use real towels when I wash my veggies. I loath using paper towels both for the money lost, and the waste of paper. I save paper towels for things like draining cooked bacon.
A super easy glass cleaner that dose just as well if not better is as follows. Take a spray bottle and fill half with warm water. Add two tbsp. of corn starch and fill the rest of the bottle with equal parts vinegar and rubbing alcohol. Shake well before each use as corn starch will settle. Try a batch I bet you will love it!
Use newspaper to save on paper towels and get a much better clean!
