And I picked up a few sets of cloth napkins (adult-style) and a couple sets of washcloths, which are now the kids version of cloth napkins. I'd started sewing up some napkins from fabric and sheeting a while back, but wasn't happy with them. Not. Absorbent. (and a pain to make without a serger).
After reading this tip on Parenthacks about using baby washcloths as napkins, I thought I'd pick up some more washcloths from IKEA and use them. So now our napkin basket is stacked with cloth, which makes me happy.
We already had a set of these IKEA washcloths, so I'm going to be cutting the cute colored loops off of the 'bath' ones, so we can easily sort them.
Hey, do me a favor today?
As you go about your daily routines, try and use one less paper product today. Go for a dish towel instead of a paper towel, try and use less napkins, or figure out your own cloth napkin plan. It's easy.
If we all use one less napkin a day, we can reduce the amount of paper in our landfill by a billion pounds. A billion!
