We had cloth napkins growing up and they were tossed in the wash along with other things.  That was practical.  Now, with no kids at home, very little washis done and it's napkins because I don't do laundry as often.

I admit I am spoiled with napkins. I like good large Vanity Fair type paper napkins. If we were really recycle conscious we would get some high quality cotton cloth napkins and throw them in the wash but alas, the busy schedule causes this. If I have a snack I will use a paper towel.

Great question, what does this have to do with Real Estate? Just kidding you got me to answer Shanna.

I find inexpensive napkins at Target or Walmart. No need to purchase "dinner" napkins. I use linen napkins when I'm entertaining. Never thought about the cost of paper towels, but I would think they would be less earth friendly.

We use a cloth napkin unless, as Ron & Alexandra Seigel said, we're having barbecue or something very messy.

I was going to say sleeves as well.

 

We use paper napkins which go in our green bin.

Shanna,

We prefer cloth napkins.  Since usually make all our meals, we feel that it honors the time we spent making it.  The only time paper comes out is with barbecued ribs, or dungeness crab or shrimps that you have to use hands for rather than utensils.

Probably napkins are more cost effective provided you wash and re-use them for a long enough period of time.  Paper napkins/towels are a lot easier though.

I'd go with cloth napkins which can be used for quite sometime.

I would not use paper towels for place settings at table, so source a less costly napkin.

Of course it is a paper towel. Especially if you use one of those that does the half or third sheet tears. As compared to the cheap paper napkin, it can be more absorbent too.
