Paper towels may be a household necessity, but they are also incredibly wasteful. But there’s a solution to the waste that won’t have you wringing and laundering dish rags all day.

These reusable paper towel sheets last a week apiece — yes, an entire week with one sheet. And they compost when you finish, leaving zero trace behind.

The paper towels may sound like they are made of pure Harry Potter-level magic, but they are actually made of a blend of cellulose, non-GMO unbleached cotton and natural mineral salt. The combination is super absorbent, with each towel holding 16 times its weight in water. Plus, the towels won’t leave behind fibers on your windows, glass surfaces or countertops.

“I am a paper towel waster,” one reviewer writes. “I received these as a gift and thought, ‘I wonder how long these will last?’ I use about one per week! They are stronger than Bounty and easier to use than my kitchen sponge or cloth. They rinse out well and dry nicely during the night. I was amazed at their durability.”

With a $32 dollar price tag for three rolls (each roll contains 12 sheets per roll), the paper towels may seem expensive. But buyers share they’ve actually saved countless dollars in the long run.

“Seems expensive for the money, but the sheets are very thick and durable,” one reviewer wrote. “They hold up well through any bathroom or kitchen cleaning and then can be tossed in the recycle bin. Three rolls lasted me almost a year.”
