DIY Unpaper Towels (w/out a sewing machine) Much prettier then paper towels. Interesting idea and no sewing machine needed. I'll have to save this one. In the long run I suspect this would be kind of a nice thing to have. Paper towels can be quite expensive for something that's just thrown in the trash.
DIY Unpaper Towels, No sewing machine needed. Although...I am lucky to have access to one so i will make these with a sewing machine.
DIY Unpaper Towels (no sewing machine needed) but, it will go faster without one. I would also top-stitch these for more durability in the washer. I really need to make some so I can break my PT habit. And I may skip the snaps all together and simply lay these in a pretty wood tray or something - Will make them easier to grab and use when needed.

Homemade Baby Wipes...I love this idea, though I may try 7th Generation paper towels. Instead of regular baby wash, I'd try the unscented Dr. Bronner's and instead of baby oil I'd use jojoba oil.

Homemade Cleaning Wipes Recipes: You will need between 2 and 4 cups of cleaning solution to fill your homemade cleaning wipes container, depending on the size and absorbency of the paper towel product selected. These cleaning recipes make about three cups of solution; increase or decrease amounts if needed. General Surface Cleaning Recipe: •1 1/2 cups white vinegar •1 1/2 cups water Disinfectant Cleaning: •1/4 to 1/2 cup pine cleaning solution such as Pine-Sol brand •2 1/2 to 2 3/4 cup water Window and Glass Cleaning: •1/2 cup rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol •2 1/2 cups water •1 tablespoon white vinegar Tips: As you use the wipes, they will begin to dry out, so add more water and/or cleaning solution as necessary. Allow wipes to stand overnight before continuing to use them after adding more solution. You may vary the strength of the cleaning solutions as necessary for your household, using more cleaning agents for a stronger wipe, less solution and more water for a milder product.
Homemade Cleaning Wipes Materials and Equipment Needed: * cylindrical or tall square plastic food storage container, 10-cup capacity * extra-large roll of paper towels * cleaning agents of your choice (recipes follow) * electric drill with 1/2-inch drill bit * electric knife * liquid measuring cups Instructions: In the garage or workshop area, place a small block of wood beneath the plastic food storage container lid. Use electric drill to drill a 1/2-inch diameter hole in the center of the container lid. For best results, select an extra-large roll of good quality paper towels for this project. Less-expensive towels fray or shred when pulled through the holder; thicker quilted towels have greater cleaning strength and withstand more scrubbing. Even at $1.39 per roll, cost for homemade wipes will be less than 75 cents, not including the storage container. Without removing the paper towel wrapper, use the electric knife to cut the paper towel roll into two shorter rolls. Be patient! It may take up to two minutes to cut through the towel roll and cardboard tube inside. Remove the wrapper, and place one short paper towel roll inside plastic food storage container. Save the second roll for a refill later. Using a liquid measuring cup, gently pour one of the following cleaning solution recipes over the top of the paper towel roll. Place the lid on the plastic food storage container, and allow paper towels to absorb cleaning solution for 4 hours to overnight. Open the food storage container. Gently pull the wet cardboard tube from the center of the paper towel roll and discard. Carefully pull the end of the paper towels from the inside, where the cardboard roll had been. Thread the end of the towels through the hole in the lid, and replace the lid. Pull gently on the exposed end to separate the cleaning wipe.

Cleaning Rags: " Cleaning rags are a part of my cleaning routine - it saves money on paper towels, is more environmentally friendly and if you use the right ones, you don't leave lint behind when you are cleaning. But without the 'proper' care, they become a gross, smelly mess. So today, I'm going to do a little chit chat about the type I use, where I use them, and how I launder them. Kitchen rags - I use these in lieu of the beloved paper towel - these are from Target - REstyle brand in the kitchen section. They are small 'bar mop towels'. I have had the same 2 packages for a couple years. I love keeping them on the counter because they are handy and I can grab one instead of paper towels. (Want to read about my obsession and how I switched from paper to cloth?) I use one or two a day for wiping down counters and the kitchen table, NOT for washing dishes. I hang the one I'm using that day from the faucet or under the kitchen sink on a hook until it's dry (no musty/moldy smell) and then it goes to the laundry room to be washed with other kitchen towels (I wait until I have a week's worth or so before washing them all). I wash kitchen towels and rags together - I don't mix the rags up with other cleaning rags. It's probably not necessary, but I don't like them to be cross-contaminated (even though I am washing them). I wash them on the 'sanitize' cycle of my washing machine, occasionally splashing in some bleach with the laundry detergent, but you could also splash in a little white vinegar instead of the bleach. Bathroom rags - I use microfiber cloths (from the automotive aisle - they're cheaper) for bathroom cleaning the bathrooms. I also use a microfiber mirror/window cleaning cloth for the mirrors and glass in the bathrooms. I use two or three cloths for each bathroom (one or two for counters, one for toilets, one for tubs and showers). When I'm done with each rag and bathroom, I toss them in a blue bucket in the laundry room just for rags. At the end of the week or when the bucket is full, the bucket is dumped into the washing machine and the rags are washed on the sanitize cycle with detergent and the occasional splash of bleach. When I am done washing all the rags in the house for the week, I run the 'clean washer' cycle with bleach (per my washing machine instructions). This cleans the washer and gets any 'rag germs' out of the washing machine as well. "
bleach wipes, baby wipes, glass wipes, and hand sanitizing wipes. each batch costs about 75 cents to make.
