One of the ways I cut back on my household expenses is by not using paper towels! I have recently switched from using paper towels to clean mirrors, wipe down counters, appliances, clean my bathroom, etc. to using Microfiber Cleaning Cloths! They leave things streak-free and lint-free! They are AMAZING at picking up even the littlest crumb. I got this 36 count pack for $22.75 from Amazon and I love them!
Since I use these over and over, I use the specific colors for a particular purpose in my house. I just don’t like the idea of using the bathroom ones later in the kitchen even though I wash them. Maybe a little weird, but that’s how I feel about it. Here is the way I use mine:
- Yellow: To clean with furniture polish (because I use Pledge and the bottle is yellow, so it’s easy for me to remember).
- Blue: To clean the bathrooms (because the word “bathroom” begins with a “B”).
- Green: To clean the kitchen counters and appliances (because that was simply the last color, haha).
These end up costing just $.66 per cloth and you can use them OVER and OVER and OVER (did I say OVER?) again! Compared to the cost of paper towels (an average of $1.80 per roll) this is a bargain, not to mention it’s better for the environment.
