5 Ways We Use Paper Towels #DollarGeneralDeals

Dollar General

When I was asked to help promote the arrival of digital coupons at Dollar General and the savings on SCOTT® products I was more than happy to step in. I’m all for companies that help consumers save. In my house we go through paper towels very fast for many reasons. Dudes, messy dudes. Thanks dad & bro. Cleaning isn’t the only reason to use paper towels though…

1. Microwave bacon without a huge mess. Place 2-3 paper towels, put the bacon on top then cover with 2 more paper towels and start the microwave. Our microwave takes about 4 minutes for nice, crispy bacon. I prefer baking it but this is handy for those lazy or in a hurry moments.
2. Place a paper towel in the crisper bin to keep veggies fresh longer. You can even put one directly in a bag of salad if you have any leftover. The paper towel absorbs moisture.

3. Use a damp paper towel to quickly clean silk off fresh corn. I hate picking that stuff off! It’s so easy this way.
4. Curl my hair without heat. Pretty much the same way you’d use rollers but I use paper towels (or cut up an old tee) because I can’t sleep with rollers in my hair…sensitive scalp over here.
5. Prevent clothing stains by placing paper towels under your arms to absorb sweat or shield deodorant. You’ll likely only need less than half, tear the paper towel to fit.

A friend told me you can use paper towels to make frozen bread taste fresh when it thaws but don’t take my word on that because I’ve never even frozen bread. I’m curious now though! Anyway, while at Dollar General I picked up an 8 count SCOTT® Choose-A-Sheet paper towel pack. I always go for the half sheet option because sometimes you don’t need a full one and it feels like a waste! I also grabbed a 9 roll SCOTT® Extra Soft tissue. I also use the tissue to refill tissue boxes myself instead of buying new ones.

    A really great way to use paper towel is for spaghetti squash. Make roughly 6-8 sheets wet, wrap it around the spaghetti squash and then place in the microwave for 10-15 minutes based on size. Also cut a slit in the squash.
