Who uses paper towels?

Well, hopefuly this thread gets some responses...

For those of you in the 'biz' what are your thoughts on using
paper towels? Added expense, or invaluable tool?

Thanks,
Lisa

We use paper towels for wiping down toilets and that's really about it. It's basically just to keep from cross-contaminating other areas. Since we changed to microfiber cloths we have drastically reduced the amount of paper towels we use anymore.

Much more in expensive to buy bags of like 100 small hand towels for $20 for us and re wash instead of using paper towels.

I use paper towels when applying BarKeepers Friend to stainless Steel sinks because it used to wear holes in my wash rags and I have used them to apply polish because it doesn't absorb into the paper towel like it does rags but to expensive to use for windows.

Umm, paper towels would be a huge waste. Use microfiber!

That is scary. If I had anything that wears holes in my rags I would stop using it.... Of course I am an all natural company. But really? Holes in rags!

I use paper towels for everything. no cross contamination and no streaks on chrome porcelain glass.
Microfiber, when dirty, streaks. And I'm far to stupid (I am a janitor after all) to remember what color wipes what

Paper Towels can be one of the best solutions that can be used for cleaning windows or mirrors, while for cleaning floors still cloth towels suits to be much better....

Well, Paper towels are great rescue in day to day life! These paper towels help out in reaching for the roll every time you're in a fix. The paper towel is of good use for absorbing the fat that surfaces on the top of broths and soups.
