Wash & Care

Unpaper towels are not pre-washed, so to fluff up the fibers and reach maximum absorbency, wash and dry a couple of times before putting them to work.

Machine wash with like colours using your detergent of choice. Tumble or hang to dry.

*Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets as they can decrease absorbency.

    These are very soft and work great as washcloths or napkins. I haven't been as happy with them in terms of drying things, for example, I had been keeping one in the bathroom to wipe down the wet countertop, but they leave behind a LOT of lint. I have machine washed and dried them twice without using fabric softener...maybe the lint shedding will improve with additional washes. They also rinse easily and air dry quickly. Overall, I would recommend!

    I love the unpaper towels- they are absorbent and rinse easily between washes.

    All the common questions

    Reusable Paper Towels


    What are reusable paper towels?

    Also known as Unpaper Towels or Non Paper Towels.
    Did you know that used paper towels cannot be recycled and they all end up in landfill?

    Reusable paper towels are washabledurable and absorbent eco alternatives to the disposable paper towels.

    Just as the name suggests, reusable paper towels are typically made with fabrics that are machine washable, so they can be reused over and over.

    Cotton flannels or bamboo cloths are some of the most popular fabrics used in making unpaper towels.

    Benefits of using reusable paper towels?

    Did we mention single-use paper towels are often made using virgin tree materials, and end up in landfill? Use reusable paper towels can significantly reduce these waste. 
    Functionally, there is nothing paper towels can do that reusable paper towels can’t do equally well if not better. 

    It saves money in long run. With the right care, a set of reusable paper towels can last between 1-2 years. Think about all the paper towels you no longer need to buy! 

    What is the difference between reusable paper towels /cloth wipes?

    The main difference between them is the size! Our reusable paper towels are 10x12”, they are roughly the same size as a full sheet of paper towel, they can be rolled up the same way. Our cloth wipes are smaller at approximately 8x8”.

    Where are your reusable paper towels / cloth wipes made?

    We stock reusable paper towels and cloth wipes from two women owned Canadian brands: Cheeks Ahoy and Three Huggers. The reusable wipes and non paper towels are all hand made locally in Ontario, Canada.

    How absorbent are reusable paper towels / cloth wipes?

    Our reusable paper towels and cloth wipes are made from super soft and absorbent 100% cotton flannel. These cloth towels and wipes are not pre-washed, so they are least absorbent when first used. Flannel naturally becomes softer and absorbent wash after wash. 

    Fabric piling naturally occurs after the cotton flannels are washed. It is not an indication that the fabric is disintegrating or wearing away. Pilling creates texture which helps with cleaning, absorption and cling. The unpaper towels actually cling better once the fabric has been washed and dried a few times.

    How long do reusable paper towels / cloth wipes last?

    Because our reusable paper towels and cloth wipes are made from 100% cotton flannel, they are incredibly strong and durable. As long as you take care of them properly by following the wash and care instructions, they can easily last for years.

    How do I wash / care for reusable paper towels / cloth wipes?

    Our reusable paper towels and cloth wipes are not pre-washed, so please wash and dry before first use. 

    For best result, loosen stains with a cold rinse first, if necessary. Wash warm or hot with like colours using your detergent of choice. Tumble dry low or air dry. All fabrics last longer when washed by hand, but feel free to toss them in the washing machine for a more rigorous clean. Our unpaper towels and cloth wipes will hold up to all the rinsing and hot washes you put them through. Please do expect some shrinkage.

    Please don’t use fabric softener or dryer sheets as they can decrease absorbency.
