The Ingenious Reason Why Experienced Housewives Cut Paper Towels in Half: A Handy Household Trick


How to Make Them:

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

Cut the paper towel roll in half and place each half in a container.

Pour the prepared solution onto the paper towel roll and seal the container with a lid.

Store it in your kitchen cabinet or where you keep your cleaning products.

After the paper towels have absorbed the solution (it takes 4 hours or overnight), remove the cardboard roll in the middle. Pull the inner part of the roll and thread the paper through the plastic cover you previously pierced in the middle. Seal the container with the lid, and you can now use them as wipes to remove dirt spots on all surfaces of the house.

Surprising Uses for Paper Towels:

Beyond wiping up spilled liquids or superficial dirt with disposable wipes, you can use them innovatively to ease your daily tasks:

Securing Cutting Boards: Place a paper towel underneath plastic cutting boards that don't have non-slip bottoms to keep them steady while cutting.

Protecting Stacked Pans: Use paper towels to protect pans when stacking them.

This approach not only offers a practical cleaning solution but also encourages eco-friendly practices in household chores.
