Step 5: Pull Out Center

Pull out the center of the paper towel roll. When pulling, this should lift the center paper towel so it comes out of the middle. Place in the container or bag for storage.

If you really want to be eco, use washcloths or cloth diaper wipes with the solution instead of paper towels. You can make a spray or store in your leftover soap bottle.
