My Green City Life


A tip from Mom

Here’s a green/thrifty tip from my mom that’s especially handy as we clean up after our holiday celebrations. Iron the tissue paper you receive and use it again. You probably already reuse gift bags and bows, but tissue paper works just as well after a quick run under an iron on very low heat. It loses a bit of crispness, but other than that, it’s good as new. Thanks, mom!

You’re supposed to iron it before re-using it?! I never do. Never had a complaint about the wrinkly tissue paper either. 😉

Supposed to? Well, I don’t know about that, but even tissue paper that’s been wadded up into a ball looks a lot better after a bit of ironing. You are right, though; reusing it is the important part!
