A more affordable alternative to paper towels

reusable paper towels

In 2022, we launched a line of highly absorbent reusable paper towels. Made with soft cotton flannel and lined with microfleece, these thick sheets of unpaper towels are still the most absorbent reusable alternative to Scott towels that I have seen on the market.

The downside? If I have to be brutally honest, it’s their high cost. Working with high quality materials is a choice I make every day and I can’t bring myself to cut corners when it comes to the quality of our products in order to offer you better prices.

I have found a way to offer you a cheaper alternative to our thick reusable paper towels, though: making a sleeker version of these with a single ply of cotton flannel. While these are less absorbent than our first model, they also much more affordable. And to mop up every day messes in the kitchen, they work quite well! So, I’m quite excited to show you the various lovely styles I’ve designed to bring this new eco-swap to your home.

How to Care for our Reusable Paper Towels

Whether you opt for single-ply or double-ply reusable paper towels, the cleaning process is the same. If your reusable paper towels are full of chunks of tomato sauce or cacao powder, you might want to rinse them out under the tap briefly. But if they’ve just served to mop up water, to clean your counter or to pick up crumbs, you can simply toss them in the washing machine with the rest of your laundry.

For optimal efficiency and durability, I recommend using cold to lukewarm water (30 to 40 degrees Celsius). Then, the most eco-friendly way to dry them is in open air, hanging or lying flat. In my opinion, this is also the best way to dry them because it will keep the fabric from deteriorating quickly. As As mentioned on Reviewed.usatoday.com, even with high-quality materials, using a tumble dryer weakens the tensile strength by approximately 50% after only 20 cycles of wash!

How to Roll our Kitchen Towels

A video is worth a million words… Or more! Here are a couple of our cutest reusable paper towels in action!

Simply put, they stick to one another, so all you need to do is roll them up around a paper towel holder. To make the task easier, I recommend starting off your roll with an empty cardboard roll leftover from your disposable paper towels (or a friend’s, if you’ve already made the switch!)

Now, sit back, relax, and watch as I roll, roll, roll!
