The magic of Paper Towels

Mo Kassaby

You may know paper towels as liquid absorbent sheets that you use on a daily basis to clean up spills and small messes in the kitchen, office, or washroom. But what if there was more you could do with paper towels, besides absorbing excess oil from food when you're cooking or menial activities that require a bit of cleaning afterwards?

In this article we will talk about the many different uses for paper towels, ones which you can practice on your own or with the family to find new reasons to purchase an extra roll next time because you never know; you could just have fun trying out these new ways to use paper towels.

Perfect for Composting

Paper has a lot of carbon elements which makes it an incredible addition and substitute for brown content in your compost management system period after using a paper towel rather than putting it in your compost because it will aid in maintaining the carbon balance and activate the compost. Paper towels contain a fluffiness that creates a pocket that supports the growth of microorganisms; this will result in a healthier, nicer, and more attractive compost your green fingers can handle.

Keeps your veggies and herbs extra fresh

If you are into gardening and have possibly turned it into a business here is a way to keep all your veggies and herbs nice and fresh for your family and customers. As We Know greens such as lettuce, kale, as well as herbs like parsley, mint, and sage have a tendency of wilting after a certain period of time in the fridge. What you can do to prevent this is to add a bit of moisture to a paper towel and place it in the bag that you keep your greens in. This will extend their lives as the paper towel will hold in the moisture, maintaining a comfortable humidity level. All of this without dampening the greens.

High grease absorber

We all know this trick of using paper towels to absorb grease is something that many of us have been putting into practice mainly in the kitchen but you can absorb other types of grease as well. You can use your paper towels to absorb or wipe the grease off your hands and your tools if you are into handiwork say the mechanic or you've been fixing a machine that uses oil.

Keeps your Cast iron in good shape

Do you know that cast iron you really love? yeah, the one you don't allow anybody else to use without your supervision. Well, there is a way you can keep it in tip-top shape and use it for even longer. The easiest way to prevent your cast iron from being accidentally scratched is by using this method to clean it; simply use a paper towel to remove the excess oil and food particles, which ensures that rust will not arrive or develop. If your cast iron needs to be washed, just dry it on the stove and when you're done give it a rub with a paper towel that you have dipped in fat to keep it in good condition.

Perfect for removing crayon and wax marks.

If you have kids then you understand the nightmare of the terrible twos. This is a stage where your adorable toddler finds it fascinating to explore areas of the house which sometimes involves having a wax crayon in hand as the weapon of choice against your walls. Using paper towels to remove these works of art from your wall is yet another great method of keeping your walls clean and in the same colour they've been since you moved in. Simply place a paper towel over the stain and run an iron over it with the heat on low. The paper towel will then act as an absorbent, removing the crayon all the while protecting the iron. Keep in mind this works best on hard surfaces.
