Save your Paper Towels!

So I'm a couponer. I can say that now loud and clear. I'm not "kinda" a couponer. I'm the woman that you really don't like to get behind in the store aisles. Even though I am very organized with paperclips and lists before I go, any good natured human being's eyes would bulge when they see stacks of coupons being handed to a cashier. I know mine would've 6 months ago. But I'm not writing today to talk about couponing. Today I just wanted to share a useful tip.

As a couponer, I'm finding that I'm collecting A LOT of newspaper! A LOT! And my recycling box is overflowing regularly with it! In addition to recycling our newspaper, I LOVE to use newspaper on my glass windows and mirrors. I spray my usual glass cleaner on the surface and wipe it up and buff, just like I would with a paper towel. For some reason, with newspaper, I never have streaks on my glass. I have a particular mirror that streaks up every time with paper towels, but when I use newspaper to clean and buff it, there is ne'er a streak to be found. Try it, see if it works for you!

This actually made me think of Guy Holloway!! When we were in middle or high school, we had a "slave auction" to raise money for youth trips. I was hired by the Holloways and Guy came running across the house when he saw me start cleaning their windows with paper towels! He instructed me on newspaper usage, and I've been using it ever since!! :)

I had completely forgotten this tip. You might consider linking it to "Works For Me Wednesday" at WeAreTHATFamily.
