You don't need paper towels to clean your windows anymore – use Dollar Tree cleaning item instead

IF you have little kids around, your mirrors and glass doors are likely covered in fingerprints.

Although your go-to fix may be to grab a Windex-covered paper towel, there’s a better product out there that will ensure your reflective surfaces are squeaky clean—and it only costs a dollar.


An organization expert and self-proclaimed “DIY Queen” who goes by @SouthernEscape on TikTok has gained a loyal following of over 650k users.

She said she knows the way to curb your paper towel usage and still get the shiniest windows ever.

“Run to the dollar tree and get yourself this microfiber mitt and replace all of your paper towels,” she began.

“We can use this to clean all of our windows, all of our mirrors, and it was one dollar.”

She used the fluffy mitt with some Dawn Platinum Powerwash to rub down her glass surfaces and showed off how well it worked.

The cleaning pro claimed that 13 billion pounds of paper towel are used each year, adding that it takes 17 trees to only make one ton of paper towels.

“Did you know that Americans on average spend like 5.7 billion dollars a year on paper towel. That’s dumb,” she said.

While she admitted that she definitely contributed to that number, she is now trying to cut back on her usage—which is why she shared the mitt.

The other plus is that you can throw the mitt in the washer with other lint free items once it’s time for a clean (no fabric softener), or simply hand wash it with dish soap.

Responding to a viewer who asked if she had to rinse the glass after using Dawn, she said it requires no rinsing whatsoever, and added that she loves using that spray.
