Sure, we all love the environment, so tissues are bad. But who really wants to put snot backin their pocket, right?
Paper towels are bad too, but who wants to dry their hands with a funked-out dishtowel that some other member of your family probably used to clean the floor? (Yes, Son #1, I’m looking at you.)
And napkins. We could use our sleeves. Or our jeans. (Don’t lie, we’ve all done it.) But really, who wants to go BUY cream colored cloth napkins and wipe a burrito smudged mouth with them?
My feelings exactly.
So, let’s solve these problems together.
1. Cut up some old T-shirts. If you can’t make a straight line with scissors (like me), fold them in fourths and use a sharp knife.
5. Grin like a man with only one brand of sock when you fold and put them away, cause THEY ALL THE SAME, MAN.
Same cloth, same size, same one-use lifestyle. No mucus collecting. No fancy cloth napkins stained by snack time. No wiping up with dirty dishtowels. Planet and wallet both get a big ole hug.
Down with snotty pockets!
