1. Cute. Although that guy used more paper towels in four minutes than I use in four months
Paper towels and paper napkins are just bad habits, a bit like salting your food before you even taste it.
Once you break the habit, you really don't miss 'em.

7. Agreed that you really don't miss them - I haven't bought them in years, until recently...
They were having a demo at the store for Bamboo paper towels. You use them and through them in the washer instead of throwing them away. I tried one and it does work really well, and they dry out quickly. Haven't tried washing it in the laundry yet.
With these, one roll of paper towels could last a year or so.
