Shark Tank bamboo paper towels are reusable : Bambooee
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Shark Tank!
You can get a 3-pack of reusable paper towels for just $10: http://bambooee.com/Shop.aspx
An 8-pack of the sweeps also costs $10: http://bambooee.com/Sweeps.aspx
Every time you buy their products, they plant a tree: http://bambooee.azurewebsites.net/Cause.aspx
So far 50,000 trees have been planted. Cool.
Or you could mosey on down to Walmart/Target and get a 6-pack of dish towels for $10 on sale, and reuse them like 100 times too.
Also I use paper towels for stuff I actually want to throw away, like the grease in a pan after I fry chicken in it. If you wash a towel with that stuff, it just goes down the sewer where you don't want it.
Stick to what you know, Panda, which is obviously NOT house cleaning. :p
