It’s hard to get rid of a habit, like using paper towels for every mess up and spill.

However, paper towels are not ideal if you’re looking to help the planet and reduce your carbon footprint. Here are two eco-friendly options you can try instead of using paper towels.

Paper Towel Alternatives

Microfiber Cloths

Microfiber cloths are a housekeeping necessity. They are absorbent, quick drying, and tiny, making them very effective. They are small enough to pick up dust and dirt particles and if you take care of them properly, they can clean around 500 times (talk about efficiency!).

Bamboo Towels

One of the newer alternatives on the market is bamboo paper towels. They look a lot like plain paper towels, except they are more durable, so you don’t need as many pieces of paper as paper towels. Each roll of bamboo towels has around 20 sheets, and some brands can be washed around 100 times, so these bad boys can last you around 2,000 uses!

Tips For Your Paper Towel Alternatives

1. Color Code: Microfiber cloths come in many different colors, which can be very convenient when it comes to your home cleaning. You’ll never have to worry about mixing up your bathroom cleaning cloth with your kitchen cloth — assign each room a different color.

2. Wash Regularly: Both paper towel alternatives will be cleaning a lot of your home’s surfaces. To make sure it’s not transferring any germs or bacteria, it’s a good idea to keep them in their own container or hamper.

3. Follow Care Instructions: Eco-friendly paper towel alternatives can save you some cash, but not if you don’t care for them properly. Look into the proper care for your microfiber cloths and bamboo towels to make sure they can last their entire lifespan.
