Why use paper towels? An ordinary cloth towel functions the same way and is neither as wasteful, nor as damaging to the environment (in terms of landfill use, the chemical pollution as well as carbon output of pulp and paper production, and destruction caused by clear cut logging.) Plus, it will save you some money. Here’s an idea:
(1) Use your regular cloth towel to squeeze water out of your clean hair.
(2) Hang it up to air-dry.
(3) Do this a few times before you need to launder the towel afresh. Seriously, some people have no common sense!
