This is a goal of mine and my husband is on board with at least trying for awhile, though I know he is skeptical about certain germy messes like raw meat.
I bought a bunch of washcloths at Target. They have 12 packs in white, blue, or green for $1.48 on clearance. They are super thin and scratchy and I wouldn't want to use them as washcloths but I think they would be good to stack on the counter in lieu of paper towels. I got the white so I can bleach if I ever need to. FYI they also have 4 packs of and towels and 2 packs of bath towels for the same price.
Thoughts? What do you use instead of paper towels? Do you have rules about certain messes being paper vs. cloth? Do you still keep a roll around for those times?
