Top Eco-friendly Kitchen Products you can use for a Sustainable Home.
After spending more than a year indoors, it’s only natural that many of us would reassess our living situation. While we’ve certainly been making some of the more common changes – using bags for life when we do our weekly shop, or washing our laundry at a lower temperature – lockdown revealed more things we could fix.
By this, we mean eliminating single-use plastics and choosing greener alternatives that we could use time and again. And we have to say, it’s only improved our experience in the kitchen.
Fortunately, setting up a more eco-friendly kitchen—especially saying goodbye to all the single-use plastics that end up clogging landfills and oceans—can start with making a few changes.
1) Reusable Paper Towels
If you are in the kitchen and pull paper towels again and again just to clean or dry your hands then this is a good option to save money.Reusable/Washable with or without mild soap in the kitchen sink and not in the washing machine.
Squeeze them to rinse water and it becomes 90% dry again. It absorbs water quickly and creates no mess as compared to paper towels when they are completely wet. Comes in a box, so unused rolls can be easily stored. It can be used for wiping or drying utensils, kitchen counter, wooden furniture, home appliances, windows, etc. The size is bigger than normal paper towels as it shrinks a little when it becomes wet.
