You've Been Using Paper Towel Wrong Your Whole Life

Yeah yeah, we know it's only paper towel, but can you imagine how much longer a roll would last if you didn't tear off 5 extra sheets each time you needed to dry your hands?!

The answer is pretty simple - and much to our surprise, science actually plays a part in the solution!

According to this Tedx Talk by Joe Smith, the trick to minimising your paper towel wastage is to employ 'the shake and fold' technique.

Shake and fold! It's that easy.

Once you've washed your hands, shake off that excess water!! And then, taking only ONE sheet of paper towel, fold it in half - you'll be amazed at the extra absorption power, believe us!

Check out Joe in action:
