When I posted the photo of my massive-insane-hoarding disorder pile of napkins, Keetha commented about using cloth instead of paper napkins in an effort to be green.
And yes, as a matter of fact, we have gone to a paperless kitchen, or at least we're working on it. I haven't bought paper towels or napkins in a long time (or much other groceries for that matter). We exhausted our supply of paper towels in February, I remember the day clearly, because I happened to have a roll of industrial towels from Carlie's school on hand, which was auction related, and the auction was 1/31... but I digress.
So we're doing this paperless kitchen thing, though I still have a few paper napkins from my Costco stash, but I've been saving them for use in the microwave, as in putting a napkin over something so it doesn't splatter or explode.
My question is: when you have no paper towels or napkins, what do you do about microwave splatter? Can I toss a cloth napkin or dish towel in over a bowl of chili that I am reheating? Because I am thinking it's going to catch fire. Not sure why I think that, but that's what comes to mind.
Does anyone know?
