Replace or minimize paper towel use by…

using cheap white wash clothes (I get mine from Walmart a pack of 18 for about $4).

Instead of replacing your toothbrush every 3 month…

stick it in the dishwasher in the utensil holder and wash every now and again.

Make shampoo go further…

by diluting  it with water. Its still shampoo!

Make your handsoap go further…

by buying the foaming dispensers at Bath & Body Works when they are on sale (they’re already filled w/ soap). When empty, add a little bit of your own handsoap and then fill about 3/4 of the way with water. Give a gentle shake back and forth before pumping.

Make your dryer sheets last longer…

by tearing them in half. Use half a sheet instead of a whole one.

Got bath towels with holes but lots of life still in them?

Cut them down, hem the ends and use them in the kitchen.

Cleaning mirrors and windows…

Use newspaper or coffee filters (instead of paper towels).

Like real  fruit smoothies?

Buy your bananas and strawberries when they are the cheapest and then freeze them.

Got interior house paint leftovers?

I’ve kept mine around for years and it has been very useful for smaller projects like painting shelving.

Cute handled shopping bags you get at stores like Bath & Body Works, American Eagle…

They can be very useful for just carrying everyday things you need to transport from point A to B or personalize them for someone special and put a gift in there.
