I love paper towels.
They're clean, they've never been used, they're quick, and I can find 1000+ ways to use them.
We ran out of paper towels last month, and in the interim before I could get to the store to buy more, we used kitchen towels for our spills, etc. That's when hubby broached the idea of going paper towel-less.
Inside, my paper-towel-loving self was revolting. I really don't want to be this green. I'm not one of those hippy types. ;)
On the other hand, it would be nice to never "run out" of paper towels and have to find a coupon/make a trip to the store. And having an extra $5-6 on hand never hurt, either (on average, that's what I pay for one of the big packages of paper towels).
So we're giving it a go.
Our replacements are pictured above. Nine dishcloths and two hand towels from Wal-Mart.
And so far, so good. I still miss the easy convenience of paper towels (they never have to be rinsed out!), but the washcloths aren't half-bad.
How hippy are we? *wink*
What do you do at your house? Is it paper towels all the way, or are you rustic and cool with washable ones? Or do you just think I'm crazy?
Don't worry, I'm not going to get rid of TP or anything...

I look forward to what you have to share! In keeping with my hippy theme, last week Mrs. Dexter shared about her adventures in making homemade deodorant! :)
