My husband uses disposable blue shop towels when he’s working on our vehicles, including a greasy and oily farm tractor.
While they are made of paper, these towels are extremely tough. I have begun to use them for housecleaning projects as well. When they are dirty, I throw them in the laundry. They come out clean and ready to use again and actually become softer after laundering.
I don’t recommend washing shop towels if they are soaked with oil or engine grit. Those that aren’t, will outlast a paper towel many times over. Jinni
