We switched to using reusable cleaning rags shortly before the pandemic started and hoo boy were we happy with that decision. We still keep paper towels around for certain types of messes and some cooking applications but I would definitely recommend the switch.

We ended up getting a pack of those Swedish Dishcloths/a knock off HEB brand last year and stopped buying paper towels. Just toss them in the wash with the hand towels

yeah we just switched when we moved into our house and wow it's so much better. reusable terry cloths for gross poo poo, the nicer Costco napkin things for kitcheny stuff and actual table napkins.

i did just buy a generic 6 pack of PTs though cause some things you can't sub in a cloth or something. like draining tofu :cry:

This is all paper products, there's serious issues in all kinds of paper manufacturing right now. Everyone is sending out kinda crappy versions of whatever because the alternative is nothing.

It will never get better quality. The bar is set this low now across the entire industry and everyone is used to it. Why would a company spend more money to make better product?

My grandmother laundered and ironed napkins for seven kids every supper. My mom always used cloth napkins at dinner. I only use cloth twice or so a year (Thanksgiving, Christmas, anniversary) but it's still nice to have a service step that's a step up from Wendy's

My paper towel story is thinking back to a goon complaining that the paper towel rolls (Bounty, in this example) were individually wrapped because it created excess waste. Ya know, as opposed to the 1000+ paper towel sheets to be used once and thrown away.

Oh, and about there being less Kirkland sheets per roll, it went down from 160 to 140 a ways back, but the last batch I bought a month ago were back to 160. I guess that's my second paper towel story.

I buy the giant pack of cotton towels at church every couple of years. Some messes are just too gross to try to wash the towel, so eventually I need more. The paper napkins came from Target since the Co didnít have any at that time :argh:

Paper towels are only superior for absorbing bacon grease.

If you eat a lot of tofu then honestly a tofu press is a pretty nice QOL upgrade.

I don't feel so bad since we have a kitchen/garden waste bin collection every week that gets taken off for composting. So all that soiled paper like pizza boxes, paper towels and napkins get used on gardens.

Were they the Caribbean Delight beef patties in the red box? If so, make sure you cook them in the oven. They're no good microwaved, but in the oven they're S-tier.

I've had problems with nasty bits of cartilage in the meat. It's been consistent between three separate purchases too.

It's unpleasant when you take a bite and suddenly you get something hard so I don't buy then as often as I'd like. My wife refuses to eat them too.

i use cheesecloth inside one of those bamboo presses off of amazon, itís like a wooden cube thing with a detachable top

gotta fold the cheesecloth over so there are at least two layers of cloth, tho, or it gets gross

Also Costco at 7:30pm on a Wednesday is really chill and good, the only downside is not having room for a dog after dinner.

If itís liquid & gross, I use my most stained rags and toss them afterwards. If itís firm (poop) I use some TP to grab the solids, then the rag for cleaning.

The nice thing about cotton rags (available at the Co) is that they can be composted so they donít have to go directly into a landfill. (Donít compost meat, or meaty pet barf.)

The refrigerated bag of seaweed salad (can't remember the brand off the top of my head) is, sadly, not good. It's WAY too sweet. I tried a bite and was repulsed, noticed it said to shake/mix well to distribute the dressing, did so and tried again...same result. So, so sweet.

Buy a box of 24 steaks and a 10 gallon barrel of frying oil to start your business center experience.

For real though, check the fridge/freezer "normal" sized food stuffs. They have some great brands or items the regular Costco doesnt carry that often, like the Kirkland Polish hot dogs.

I wonder if they see holiday surges like regular Costco? because I avoid pretty much every retail outlet this entire month if I can get away with it, 100x avoid on a weekend

Had to go digging but this is the one we have:

https://www.amazon.com/EZ-Tofu-Press-Removes-Texture/dp/B007LLGMG2/

Looking at the pics they added a honeycomb texture to the top and bottom to I guess save on plastic and weight. Probably makes it slightly more annoying to clean but I just put it in the dishwasher.

If you do that really soft tofu type you might need to wrap it in cheesecloth but with the firmer stuff no need really. Throw it on a plate or shallow bowl or if you have a clean sink hell throw it in there and have it drain away.
