Paper towels are one of the most useful items in the home, but they are pretty wasteful, so I’m always on the lookout for something eco friendly for the kitchen. When I found this unpaper towel video tutorial by Whitney Sews on YouTube, I knew this would be a great option for my cleaning needs. These unpaper towels can be made from anything from scrap fabric to recycled sheets or pillowcases. The sky is the limit on how you want these useful towels to look. I am thinking of making a large stack of them and putting them on a roll, so the family has a never-ending supply and we never have to resort to using regular paper towels again. The directions are really easy to follow in this video tutorial, and anyone who has barely any sewing skills at all can make some.
Materials For Unpaper Towels:
- A sewing machine
- A pair of scissors
- A rotary cutter
- A cutting mat
- A ruler
In this unpaper towel video tutorial by Whitney Sews on YouTube, you will learn to make these unpaper towels out of recycled fabric. You begin by cutting your fabric into squares, then sew them with right sides together.
You can also make the unpaper towels in smaller squares using terry cloth to use as dish scrubbers.
These unpaper towels are one of the best ideas I have come across in a very long time and they are very decorative looking in the kitchen.
