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!

The holder is entirely compostable as well.
These un paper towels work great as napkins or “paper” towels, either in the kitchen or bathroom. I love them and have made them a standard present for many people!!
Only been using them a couple days now but love the quick and easy clean-up they allow for. I've mainly used them for cleaning countertops and wiping up small spills. But so far so good! I imagine we'll invest in more in the future.
I can use them for everything in the kitchen. I love that I can ring them out and rinse them off in the sink if I need to!
So cute and work great! They wash very well too.
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.
