Paper towels

Just can't get by without paper towels? Try pages of newspaper instead. If you crumple them hard, then smooth them out, they'll be more absorbent.

That is so true. I use them all the time for cleaning my windows and mirrors. The newsprint doesn't come off on the windows, but I wonder about it coming off on other surfaces?? Most likely not, so I'll give it a try.

I prefer using rags. I keep a big stack of rags around and use them instead. I still keep paper towels for the occational need, but we only use a couple rolls a year.
