How great does it feel to use cloth napkins when you go to a nice restaurant? I know it makes me feel special. Also, we waste so many paper towels in our kitchens. Here is a simple and cheap way to stock your kitchen with cloth napkins that you can use for any meal (not just the fancy ones).
1. Go through your craft drawer & find scrap material in your favorite patterns.
2. Cut each napkin 18″ x 18″ in size.
3. Fold each edge over slightly and iron.
4. Sew along the fold.
Cleaning the napkins can be very easy and not add to the tons of laundry you already have to do. Once the kitchen in clean, pour a small amount of laundry detergent into the sink with a bit of warm water. I throw the napkins in to soak til bedtime. Before you go to bed, rinse them off and clip them to a clothes hanger in your laundry to dry.
