6 smart tips for using paper towels
This little tool is an everyday cleaning essential, but did you know that paper towels can be used for a lot more than spills? Lifestyle expert Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault has teamed up with the Royale Tiger Towel brand to share smart, everyday solutions for using paper towels around the home, as follows: around the base of your bathroom faucet or your shower head, try soaking a paper towel in a vinegar and water solution and wrapping it around the affected areas. Allow the damp towels to sit for about an hour, then remove and rinse with clean water.
• Create a quick and disposable dust pan by wetting a few sheets of paper towel and placing them on the floor. Sweep dirt onto the towels, then simply fold them up and toss in the composter when done.The moisture is a magnet for grabbing onto dirt particles.
• Line the bottom of your waste bins with several sheets of paper towel and add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to catch any garbage leaks and keep the bin smelling fresh.
“While paper towels are a necessity in the kitchen, they can be also helpful throughout the rest of the home. Make sure to keep a roll under the bathroom sink, in the garage or even in the trunk of your car for quick, in-a-pinch clean-ups,” adds Perrault.
