If you don’t want to recycle your old newspapers, then try reusing them. Here are a few ideas on what you can do with them:

  1. For some reason, they make your windows squeaky clean. Spray your windows with your favorite glass and surface cleaner, crumple up a few newspaper pages, and wipe for a spot window.
  2. They make great packaging supplies. Instead of those styrofoam bubbles, create the extra padding you need by crumpling up sheets of newspaper. Those styrofoam bubbles usually are not recyclable.
  3. Instead of paper towels, you can layer sheets of folded newspaper between your fine china. It will help protect each plate from hitting against each other.
  4. Use them as “tablecloths.” It helps protect your dinner table from getting scratched if you have a glass table. You can also leave your table manners behind by placing your chicken bones on it or let your sloppy joe meats fall on it.
  5. Lay sheets of newspaper on your kitchen floor when you are going to fry something. It will protect the tiles in your kitchen makes cleaning up a heck of a lot easier!
