It's all about making life simple, right? I found this great little video with some super simple uses for paper towels that I can't help but think, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Some of the great ideas that I know I'll be using include:

  • Try attaching the cardboard roll to a vacuum cleaner hose to get to tough places. This is especially good when you're cleaning your car.
  • Cool a can of Coke or beer quickly by takings some damp paper towels and wrapping them around a can of soda. Then just put the soda in the freezer for 10 to 20 minutes. It'll come out colder than a bare unwrapped can.
  • Make an easy ice pack. Just dampen a few paper towels and store them in the freezer. They'll be ready when you need them and the cool thing is you can mold them to your injury. They explain it much better in the video.

Can you add to the list? Let us know if you've got a use for paper towels that isn't listed.
