      The Magic Eraser really do a fantastic job on grease and grime and much less waste.

    That is so cool that it has Dawn added to the Bounty paper towel! That’s a great idea! I love the tension rod under the sink too! (And my microwave is so much worse! Add that to my To Do Lost!)

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      It’s great! The kitchen is the toughest room for me for some reason. These make it much easier.

  3. Kirsten says:

    Shut the front door! I need these paper towels in my life! I’m absolutely going to look for these when I go back to the grocery store this weekend. Talk about a timesaver!

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      LOL! They are awesome, Kristen. They don’t leave streaks either.

  4. love that the Dawn is worked into it- that’s what I’m using anyway!! Also, the paper towels on a tension rod is a great idea. I have my spray cleaners one one but it’s so heavy it falls down a lot… I’m going to swap things around a bit! 🙂

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      I tried the spray cleaners too but they kept falling. Paper towels work well. Plus you can still reach underneath 🙂

  5. Thanks for the tips! I need all the help I can get! 🙂

    Great tips! One I’d add in is take the Bounty towels and turbo charge them with some industrial window cleaner (if you can get your hands on it), it’ll come in a big tub BUT it works oh so very well.

  7. I love, love, love Bounty paper towels!! Thanks for all the great tips!

    I love bounty! I haven’t seen these at my store but I’ll be looking out for them. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the product.

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      They are so amazing Corina! I think I have used them everyday. You should definitely try it out. Thanks for stopping by!

    I think your work is amazing and anyone who would post negative things about all your hard work are simply jealous because they either don’t have the space or time or ambition to do it for themselves. I am pinning this to my pinterest site because one day I WILL be able to make myself a nice area like this but currently have higher priority projects that have to come first (a leaky roof needs my attention first – go figure?). The bins that you use – you don’t have to be rich to get them, I see ones like those at the Dollar Store all the time so if you spend $20 and then buy some paint you could get the same look. Your ideas are wonderful and I appreciate that you shared your process and results with us.

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Jilletta!

    You can get the same results with Dawn in your sink with water. Clean with a microfiber cloth with this solution. Cleans everything in my kitchen, saves money, and eliminates need for so many cleaning products.

  12. Jeanne says:

    what a great product these Bounty Paper Towels with Dawn are. I now clean everything in my kitchen with them. Just love the way they clean !!! Fantastic Product !!!!

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      I can’t stop using them… I’m addicted! Ha! Thanks for stopping by, Jeanne!

    More throw-aways! Not for me. I always use & reuse old sox, t-shirts, etc. Much better for our earth. Less trash in landfills. Whatever paper products we use, gets composted.

  14. Michelle says:

    Am so sad to see this product so enthusiastically embraced. Grabbing your spray cleaner of choice to use a squirt 1 or 2 for the specific job at hand (while also grabbing a sheet of paper towel) is just too darn time consuming? Really? Each individual towel is LOADED with 100s of times (at least) more Dawn than ANY single task requires. I get the same great results as yours cleaning inside my SS microwave w/Dawn’s great Direct Foam product(always@kitchen my sink for any quick mess) & 1 pc of the smaller “select a size” paper towels. Foam is a diluted (but uber-effective) version of Dawn & the dispenser can be re-filled with 1part Dawn liquid dish detergent to 4-6parts water (or to fit your need).
    Anytime a manufacturer pre-determines a std amount of soap we need, you can bet they’re eager to sell us WAY more than we truly need. Works better for them that way.

    I have been using paper towels and Dow Foam bathroom cleaner as my method of cleaning just about everything for YEARS! I hate rinsing out towels over and over to clean….. dirt, hair, crumbs, etc. YUK! Spray the surface with Dow, let it set a minute to melt the dirt and germs, than wipe it up and throw it all in the trash. I even use Dow to clean my silk flowers….spray evenly, let the dirt and dust melt off, then rinse gently…no rubbing, under warm water and let them dry on a towel with a table fan blowing gently on them…they look like new. Although I will never give up my Dow for certain things, I can’t wait to try these new Bounty dampened and ready to go!

    My question is. How did it all get so dirty to start with.. Clean you dont make you keep it.

  17. Sue Takensky says:

    Phyl, You are so right! In this day and age, we need to make the environment the priority, not convenience. I haven’t used paper towels for over ten years. I use cloth kitchen towels. It’s cheaper too.

  18. Unskinator says:

    Looked at the picture of your MW. Lots of splashed dirt. Like i said clean you keep. Here is a good use for a paper towel. Every time you use the MW cover the food with a paper towel that way it dont get dirty in the first place. Been done in this house for 25 years and the MW still looks like new.
