How long does one sheet last?

One Papaya paper towel replaces 17 ROLLS of disposable paper towel! Most people like to compost and start a new one after 2-3 months of average wear and tear, but one can last up to 6-9 months depending on use!

How does it work?

Your Papaya paper towel will feel a lil’ stiff when dry. Simply wet to soften, use it like you would a paper towel, rag or sponge, and then hang after use for our no-smell, quick-dry, easy-storage solution!

What are they made of?

Papaya paper towels are made of 70% cellulose and 30% cotton - both natural and renewable materials! So you can toss them in the compost at the end of their lifecycle and start a new one guilt free :)

How do you wash them?

For regular everyday use, hand-washing with soap and water does the trick. For a deeper clean (approx. once a week) you can machine wash & air-dry or place them on the top rack of your dishwasher during a cycle!

What makes them antibacterial?

Papaya’s materials are super quick drying (especially when hung on our hook!). Most bacteria thrives in damp environments, so unlike dish towels, wash cloths or sink sponges that tend to stay damp and never get fully dry, Papaya paper towels dry so quickly, they inhibit the growth of that icky bacteria!

How long do they take to dry?

Your Papaya paper towels will start to dry within 1-2 hours and are typically fully dry in 3-4 hours! Unlike other materials that stay damp overnight, allowing bacteria to breed and develop that icky mildew smell.

Love them

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.

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!!!!

Love it!

These are great towels. I've used a lot fewer paper towels since I got Papaya. Will order again.
