Do You Hate to Iron?

Well, I do and I confess it has kept me in the paper napkin habit for way too long. I have gone out (more than once) to buy napkins with the idea of never using paper again, only to discover that I now have big balls of wrinkles that can only pretend to be napkins. I know there are people who iron there napkins, but I'm not one of them! Nor am I good at pulling them out of the dryer the instant the dryer finishes.

Finally... I think I found a solution. i just bought these Evolution napkins at Bed, Bath & Beyond. They are 2 for $8.99 - less if you find one of those coupons they seem to always send in the mail. They don't wrinkle because they are made of...plastic bottles! How a plastic water bottle can be recycled into a soft, functional napkin, I have no idea, but I love them so I had to share.


  1. That sounds awesome. Can you use these for those everyday times that you need a napkin. I find that we use more than one paper napkin a day, so I wonder how this would work for that. Each person gets one of these per day?

    Thanks for the info. I might just look them up.

  2. It definitely depends on your personal preference and feelings about germs. Some people just put the napkins back in the drawer if they aren't visibly dirty. Some familiese color-code per person (e.g. Child 1=blue, Child 2=red, etc...) and others just buy lots so they always have a fresh stack. Whatever works...
