You spill some coffee on your countertops, what do you do? Reach for a paper towel. You rinsed a dish before placing it in the dishwasher, making water splash everywhere but the sink, what do you do? Reach for a paper towel. Before you know it, these micro-actions add up, and you’ve run through an entire roll faster than you’d like to admit. You’d like to be more eco-friendly, but using a dishrag is out of the question—the lingering moisture is a breeding ground for bacteria in the kitchen, and as a whole just makes your skin crawl. Fortunately, there’s a new innovation that brings together sustainability and cleanliness: Papaya reusables. And yes, just one can in fact replace 17 rolls of paper towels.

What are Papaya Reusables?

Papaya’s reusable paper towels are the latest innovation in fighting against the waste produced by using paper towels and replacing smelly plastic dish sponges. But how do they work? While they look like dishcloths, they’re made from 100% compostable materials—70% cellulose and 30% cotton that is also naturally antibacterial—and behave more like a paper towel with their impressive absorbency. They can be used to wipe up spills or tackle stubborn messes, all while leaving surfaces streak-free. With their quick-drying nature, they remain fresh and odor-free. And, each one has a lifespan of about two-to-three months before needing to be replaced. Plus, they come in many different colors and fun patterns.​​

How To Use Papaya Reusable Paper Towels

Step 1: Hang and Prep

Getting started with Papaya towels is easy. All you have to do is install the included hooks in convenient spots around your home, like your backsplash, highchair, or bathroom. Then, hang different designs for different uses, so you always have the right towel for the job.

Step 2: Clean with Ease

  • Wet it: Your Papaya towel may feel a bit stiff when dry. Just wet it to soften it up and get it ready for action.
  • Wipe it: Use your Papaya towel just like you would a regular paper towel, but enjoy the added benefits of reusability, odor resistance, and superior absorbency.
  • Hang it: After use, hang your Papaya towel on its own hook to dry. Thanks to its quick-drying design, it’ll be ready for action again in no time. For a deep and thorough clean, toss it in the dishwasher. No, seriously!

A Handy Cleaning Tool

The best part is, Papaya towels aren’t just for the kitchen. You can keep them handy all over your home for a wide range of cleaning tasks.

  • Backsplash: Perfect for wiping up spills, cleaning countertops, and shining appliances.
  • Kitchen Sink: Say goodbye to gross, bacteria-filled sponges and hello to fresh, clean dishes.
  • Drawers: Use them to absorb moisture from produce or as a substitute for disposable napkins.
  • Bathroom: Keep one handy for wiping down surfaces and cleaning mirrors, showers, and tubs.
  • Cleaning Caddy: Use them to clean windows, mirrors, walls, and floors with ease.
  • Highchair: Ideal for cleaning up after messy mealtimes and wiping down sticky hands and faces.
