Carbon footprint: paper towels vs. cloth?

Claudette | Mar 20, 2012 07:42 AM

Please forgive me if this is an old topic, but I couldn't find any previous threads on it: when is it better to use paper towels than a cloth one? Although I don't like throwing away so much paper, it seems that using a lot of water to wash off honey, spilled messes, etc. is a bigger waste of natural resources. Is there a break-even point between the two? TIA.
