Everyone uses paper towels. Frankly, I do not know what we would do without them. Oh the soft feeling we experience when we wipe off after washing. Delicious, right? Of all known towel types, we have an unknown hero in the paper towel. Yes, the absorbent towel that is made of fabric, you normally discard after using it to wipe your hands wash after wash.
Their production: Paper towels, just like other tissues, are now made from recycled pulp. This is extracted from the paper products. The use of virgin pulp to produce tissue has been reduced to reduce the rate of deforestation. Paper towels are most often used to wipe up spills and after washing. While all of these are good and really use them and play a role in better sanitation at home, there are some other, pretty amazing uses for these towels. Check out a few examples.
Dry silk from corn: This task does not have to be painful anymore. Not after learning this trick. A small paper towel is all you need. Drying it over the corn surface is all it takes to have your corn ready to cook.
Keep vegetables fresh: When refrigerated, green products will normally wither in the refrigerator. Adding a damp paper to the bag as you hold them is a sure way to keep them fresher for longer. The paper towel retains moisture and keeps the moisture at a level that is suitable for the greens, without them rotting due to moisture.
A replacement, albeit temporary coffee filter: Yes! So much is true, a paper towel will work instead of your regular coffee filter if it should disappear, but you need the daily morning fix. Next time you are in such a jam. Do not fear.
Also clean the can opener: No matter how infrequently you use it, you can open the can, over time some strange debris accumulates on the cutting wheels. This is not something you want in your food. By simply opening the paper towel, close the wheel on the edge of the paper towel, then close the handles and turn the crank and see the towel clean from the debris when the wheel cuts through.
