  • NO. I can't live with out my paper towels. I use them for every thing. If I run out of paper towels, I go get them that second.

  • We use paper towels minimally. In fact, I place a date inside the tube to track my use. We use cloth napkins, towels, washing/cleaning cloths and only use paper towel for things that really require it. And quite frankly, we could probably use cloth for those things as pads...another story!

  • I use a ton of paper towels. I refuse to dry my hands on a dish towel, and when I wipe the counters, I use paper towels. I clean the windows with paper towels, as well as any other glass surface in the house.

    The only time I use a dish towel is for drying dishes, and I only use it once. I think it stems from my mom's dish towels and cloths always being stinky.

  • I tried to live without them and it didn't work well. What would I use to soak the grease up for bacon? What would I use to wash my windows and mirrors? Regular towels/rags leave smudges. I used to use paper towels for EVERYTHING! Now I just use them for necessary things like windows, mirrors and bacon:) My papertowels last much longer now.

  • I could live without them. I only use them for soaking up grease, like from bacon or fried chicken. For winows I use crumpled up newspaper, IMO it works so much better, no streaks even with cheap window cleaner. I use one roll of paper towels every other month or so.
