Creative ways to reuse kitchen roll
Kitchen roll, also known as paper towels, may seem like a one-time use item, but there are actually many ways to reuse them in a creative and eco-friendly way. One way is to use them as napkins for a dinner party, saving money and reducing waste. Another way is to create DIY cleaning wipes by soaking them in a solution of water and vinegar. Kitchen roll can also be used to dry delicate items such as crystal or china.
Use kitchen roll for emergency spills
Kitchen roll is great for quickly soaking up spills, especially in an emergency situation. Keep a roll handy in the car for spills on road trips or in a diaper bag for unexpected messes. Kitchen roll can also be used to absorb excess oil from fried food or to blot away excess moisture from fruits and vegetables for even cooking.
Kitchen roll for gardening
Kitchen roll can be used in gardening as well. Use it to line the bottom of pots to prevent soil from falling out the drainage hole. It can also be used to wrap root balls when transplanting plants. And if you need to start seeds, kitchen roll can be used as a starter pot. Simply moisten the paper, place soil and the seed, and once the seedling has sprouted, it can be transplanted into a larger pot.
Donate unused kitchen roll to animal shelters
If you have unused kitchen roll that you won’t use, consider donating it to local animal shelters. They can use them to make chew toys for the animals or as bedding material. This is a great way to reduce waste and help animals in need. Just make sure it is clean and in good condition.
Composting kitchen roll
If you have a compost bin, you can use kitchen roll to add to the compost. Kitchen roll is biodegradable and can be used as a brown material, which is high in carbon. Tear the kitchen roll into small pieces and add it to the compost bin along with your other compostable materials. This will help reduce landfill waste and create nutrient-rich compost for your garden.
