Unpaper towels are a simple reusable swap for those who often find themselves reaching for a fresh paper towel to clean up spills, wipe down surfaces, etc. They are a more sustainable alternative to disposable paper towels because they can be used again and again. When they are dirty, just throw them in the washer and dryer. Plus, no need to frequently run to the store to restock!
They can be used for anything you would use a paper towel for. They are also safe in the microwave, so you can use them to cover dishes while cooking. Each set comes with 12 towels. They naturally cling together, making it easy to roll up on a paper towel holder without the need for snaps, or you can fold them and store in a basket.
Absorbency is increased after the first few washes and will shrink just enough to be the perfect size for a standard paper towel roll.
The optional unpaper towel holder is custom designed to store your unpaper towels with ease on a roll. Slide the dowel off of the base, roll your unpaper towels, and slide it back on. It also fits a standard roll of paper towels.
Note: You may also be interested in our Swedish dishcloths, which are highly absorbent (they hold 20x their weight in water) and a fan favorite for wiping up spills. We love keeping a couple of these on hand in addition to unpaper towels!

These are great! Better quality then expected. I was able to wrap them around my current paper towel holder and it works great. Will be ordering more colors soon.
I received my Lemon Unpaper towels and I love them! They’re so soft and cheerful, plus I’ll be saving money by not purchasing the paper ones. The customer service department is very responsive and kind to work with.
I can’t recommend these enough. I got two sets of the lemon patterned towels and love how they brighten the room. I use them for every meal and for cleaning surfaces, and then toss them with my laundry to clean them. So far, I’ve found that stains come out effortlessly. These are easily one of my favorite purchases of 2020!
These are lovely, I bought 2 packs of 12. After a few washes they have become pretty absorbent, I did have to use a lint brush or fabric shaver after the first wash, as they shed a bit. I put a bin under our sink to collect the used ones, and we wash them about every 2 days or so. Overall these are such a wonderful alternative to regular paper towels, which my family was using a shameful amount of daily. I think we will get a lot of use out of these.
We ordered the lemon pattern and they’re quite beautiful. Cheerful addition to the kitchen. They work well for our needs and are absorbent which is exactly what we wanted.
