This is pretty neat! I think I'll have to ask my mom to pick some of these up for me when she goes to Sam's Club. I wonder if they would also be good substitutes as napkins?

Stephen

I wonder if Costco sells something similar?

I bought these last weekend at Sam's, and they are wonderful! They work great as paper towels. I've used them to clean produce, cover food in the microwave, clean the kitchen, bathrooms, wipe down the baby, you name it. I actually cut them in half so I have 50 to use and reuse since they were so big originally. They are so much like paper towels, and much thinner than the dishtowels I was trying to substitute paper with. Thanks for the suggestion!

just stumbled across your blog.. great find! I love finding eco-friendly products at the grocery store and such.

We've used this product for six months and it is outstanding. However, as theorized in the review, the paper companies apparently didn't like it. Sam's Club has replaced ProForce Reusable Towels with a paper-based towel. As a result, ProForce has discontinued manufacturing of this product. If anybody knows of a good replacement or of a Sam's Club that has some left, please let me know.

If we all called Sam's club to carry it again, I think they might bring it back. I have been using these towels for some time and went to buy more and they said it has been discontinued! LETS ALL START E-MAILING TO SAMS CLUB TO BRING THEM BACK!!!!!

TERESA GIFFORD

EVERYONE DEFINITELY NEEDS TO E-MAIL SAM'S AND ASK THEM TO BRING THE TOWELS BACK. PLEASE KEEP SUGGESTING THIS IDEA.

Oh shoot! I want these and can't find them! I was at Sam's last night and didn't see them...now I see here that Sam's no longer carries them. I emailed the "Proforce" customer service and asked where I can get them, so we'll see. I will email Sam's now! :)

teresa

You cannot get them anywhere. I think everyone should flood Sam's with e-mails expressing their disappointment that they no longer carry the item.

I've been trying to find a store or website that sells this product. It seems to have been sweeped the papertowel industry off it's feet and possibly threatened to put them out of business. Please send me some information where I can find this excellent product. Friends, neighbors, and relatives are anxiously awaiting this information. ProForce Reusable Food Service Towels, are unequivocally the BEST kitchen towel out there.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

i have been using these for years. I work in a restaurant where we use these towels for everything, eventually some make it home with me. You should be able to find them through a restaurant supply company.

Disposable paper products are not an environmental disaster. Rather, they are very renewable, and are easily biodegraded- I use them in my compost pile. Rags used in place of paper towels can promote the spread of germs. The more paper towels are bought, the more refined they become through research and development, the more trees are planted that bring balance to CO2 levels, and the more incentive created to manage resources- forests, pulp, machinery, and labor- efficiently and productively.

blog Is very informative , I am really pleased to post my comment on this blog . It helped me with ocean of knowledge so I really believe you will do much better in the future. Good job web master.

ShamWow

Good post. I use reusable towels instead of paper towels anyway. I find that they work a lot better. I can just clean things up with my ShamWow and its can be used over and over again. It works much better than a paper towel could anyway.
