Finding a cloth alternative to your everyday paper products will not only save you money it will cut your carbon foot print. Gina’s Soft Cloth Shop has a amazing selection high quality cloth products that are proudly made one at a time in the USA.
Here’s some horrifying paper towel facts. 13 billion pounds of paper towels are used each year. That’s over 45 pounds of paper towels per person, per year. Paper towels are not recyclable since they don’t contain much fiber, making them purely waste. This waste adds up to 254 million tons of trash globally each year. These numbers alone should make you want to ditch paper towels and go paperless!
When I decided to make the switch to reusable products, paper towels and napkins were the first items I replaced. We use Gina’s Soft Cloth Shop Paperless Towels for everything, drying hands, mopping us spills and cleaning up my messy 19 month old after meals. As far as cleaning up messes, paperless towels are far superior to paper. I am able to clean the biggest of messes with one towel. Paperless Towels wont fall apart like paper towels do, these high quality towels will last you a long time. Simply wash and reuse!
Gina’s Soft Cloth Shop Paperless Towels are offered in Organic Cotton, Organic Cotton Birdseye, Unbleached Birdseye Cotton and White Cotton Birdseye. These Paperless Towels have a beautiful surged edging offered in a wide range of colors. You can easily coordinate with your kitchen colors or enjoy a rainbow assortment of colors. No longer will you have the eyesore of a roll of paper towels sitting on your counter.
Little Wipes make a perfect eco-friendly alternative to baby wipes. Baby wipes wreak environmental havoc since most contain plastic fibers that are not biodegradable. There is always the misconception that baby wipes are flushable. I would not recommend flushing any kind of baby wipe and risk clogging not only your toilet but the city’s sewer system. Baby wipes also contain so many preservatives and fragrances that I don’t feel comfortable touching my daughters sensitive skin. As a cloth diapering mama, it only makes sense to use cloth wipes.
Gina’s Soft Cloth Shop’s Little Wipes have so many uses. These wipes are extremely absorbent making them great wash cloths. Little Wipes also make great tissues, helping keep little noses from getting irritated from constant wiping. Little wipes are 8″x 8″ and are offered in Organic Cotton Bamboo Velour, White Birdseye Cotton, Organic Cotton and flannel.

Caring for your Cloth items
Caring for your Paperless Towels and Little Wipes is simple. I wash my towels and wipes in cold/ warm water. I also avoid fabric softeners and dryer sheet to keep the fabric absorbent. Gina’s Soft Cloth Shop also suggests occasionally adding 1/4 cup of white vinegar to your rinse cycle to prevent detergent build up and keep your towels soft. My Little Wipes that I use as baby wipes get thrown in the wash along with my diaper laundry. Air dry your towels in the sun for it antibacterial and stain removing benefits or dry in your dryer.
