Paper towels & counter spray= two things off my regular shopping list! 👯 Kitchen rags was one of my first zero waste swaps and super easy. Throwing money and resources in the trash always annoyed both my partner and myself. In the beginning, I was concerned more laundry would waste more water but that is happily not the case! The amount of water, paper, plastic wrapping, cardboard tubes, shipping to local store, etc. used to make disposable paper towels vastly outweighs the waste of household laundry. If you don't already have some lying around, they can easily be made with old shirts, towels, sheets, etc.
There are lots of all purpose cleaners and diy recipes that can be found in bulk or concentrate (like vinegar and castille soap based). If I find an unused spray nozzle, I'll add it to this old apple cider vinegar jar, but not necessary. ⚡ I just happened to find this cabinet door storage piece under the bed- not being used. So it is now where I put the dirty rags and cloth napkins in the kitchen before they make it to the laundry room. Do what works for you! Get creative and resourceful. Use what you already have! Do you have a favorite kitchen cleaner recipe or supplier?
