"This is the first time I've used these and I love them. They take a little getting used to, but we've significantly reduced the use of paper towels in our house. They are super absorbent once they're a little wet and they dry quickly so no more smelly dish cloths! We use them like wet napkins at the table for little hands and faces - much softer than paper towels and more sustainable than baby wet naps. So far, they seem to be holding up to daily scrubbing and wringing. Glad we gave these a try!"
"We have been looking for a paper towel replacement for 6 months. Everything I found had multiple sheets and I could think about was having to add more laundry. I wanted something simple! Papaya has been exactly what I was looking for and more! I use it as a sponge and paper towel. I love that it hangs because it doesn't mildew! After 2 weeks of daily use it still smells great! This has been a life changer and I will never go back. Thanks for an AMAZING product ❤️"
"Better than anticipated. Very absorbent and does a really awesome job of scrubbing gunk off of surfaces while still being gentle and not requiring much, if any, cleaning product! Will definitely buy again. Worth the money upfront IMO."
"I love this product! I bought them because i noticed i was going through a million wipes and paper towels wiping my toddler and his highchair up after every meal or snack! This have been an amazing alternative! Very happy."

"Reusable paper towels by Papaya will take your cleaning routine to the next level."
"While giving paper towels as a gift may seem weird at first, that's because you haven't seen Papaya."
"It may seem too good to be true, but that's the magic behind reusable paper towel brand Papaya."
What are they made of?
Our sustainable paper towels are made from a combination of two natural materials: 70% cellulose and 30% cotton - both of which are renewable resources! This also makes them 100% compostable and biodegradable, so you can throw them in your compost bin at the end of their lifecycle and start a new one guilt free :)
How long does one sheet last?
One sheet replaces 17 ROLLS of regular paper towels, and at the end of its lifecycle, it’s 100% compostable! Most people like to compost and start a new one after 2-3 months of average wear and tear, but it can actually last up to 6-9 months depending on use.
How to wash them?
For regular, everyday use, a good old fashioned hand-wash with soap and water does the trick. For a deeper clean, either throw them in your washing machine and air dry. Or, place them on the top rack of the dishwasher during a cycle!
Can I use them with cleaning products?
Yes! Your paper towels can be used with water alone, but are also compatible with any cleaning product or spray you normally use. After you're finished with them, give them a quick rinse, wring out the water and hang back up to dry!
Isn’t it just a kitchen towel?
Unlike dish towels, our reusable paper towels are all natural, antibacterial (so they don’t get that mildew smell) and even compostable so they don't end up in the landfill! They’re also wayyy more absorbent than average towels which tend to just move the mess around. Would you reach for a kitchen towel to clean a ketchup spill? Probably not, because you’d have to throw it straight in the laundry! With reusable paper towels, you can get down and dirty like a paper towel, then just rinse out the mess and hang to dry!
What makes it antibacterial?
Bacteria thrives in damp environments. So unlike dish towels, wash cloths or sponges that tend to stay damp for hours, our paper towels dry so quickly they inhibit the growth of that icky bacteria (especially when hung on the Papaya hook!). This means no more mildewy smell! Plus, the ultra absorbent material doesn’t just move the mess around. It actually absorbs all the bacteria, germs and pathogens from your surface and transfers them to the waste water when cleaned.
How does the subscription box work?
Picture a world where you don’t hoard packs of bulky, plastic covered, traditional paper towels. Instead, beautiful, washable, reusable paper towels show up at your door every 2, 3 or 4 months. You save on every order, and you can cancel your subscription at any time. Plus, you'll receive a hook with your first order, and just your paper towels on every recurring order to reduce extra waste: )
We buy maybe one roll of paper towels for emergencies only per month and don't use cloth dishrags anymore. Have a dedicated one for kitchen and one for everything else at all times. Love these.
The papaya reusable towels exceeded my expectations. Easy to squeeze to leave damp and dry without odor.
They work well!
So it has been almost 2 months since my first papaya order and let me just say I’m shocked!!! I am still using the very first papaya paper towel I ordered!! I have one in the kitchen, and in each bathroom (3). The one in the kitchen which gets used the most, multiple times per day, still looks great! It cleans my counters, stove top, microwave, fridge, dining table and random spills from my 7 year old daily! It’s not falling apart, design still in tact, even after some bleach use, still super absorbent and doesn’t stink. I used to go through 1 roll of regular paper towels about every 2-3 days, because I used them for everything. So if my math is correct, papaya saved me from buying close to 20 rolls of paper towels! Like I said, my kitchen papaya still looks great and the only reason I was thinking of putting in a new one is just for a different design! I have already reordered different designs because I was so excited but I may have gotten carried away and probably won’t need more paper towels for at least a year at this rate!!! So glad I found papaya, I will be a forever customer!!!!
These are great towels. I've used a lot fewer paper towels since I got Papaya. Will order again.
