New Item of Need - Paper Towels - We use a lot of kitchen-style paper towels. If you have ever seen our shop, you will know that it is very neat and clean. We use paper towels to clean the counters, paint stripping, cleaning equipment, drying our hands, spills, and much more.We've been purchasing our paper towels at Costco (Kirkland brand) or Dollar General (Sparkle brand). Generally we pay less than $1 per roll. Any brand is OK. The really cheap white towels is all we need. For the tough jobs we use the blue shop towels. (See separate listing for the blue towels.)You may buy them new or donate your excess supply of paper towels from your home or shop. See less
