EcoNest - Eco Friendly Nesties Etsy Team: Snapping Reusable Paper Towels
Our household is paper towel free, has been for years. I keep a drawer of old t-shirts and rags for spills, but these, well I think they are divine. I would love to have these pretties sitting out for at least the counter spills. And I’ll save my drawer of rags for floor spills. I have a billion yards of flannel, I wonder how many snaps I have?
