If you use more than one paper towel to dry your hands, you’re using more than you should. Joe Smith demonstrates the perfect paper towel technique: shake and fold.
After washing your hands properly, shake them 12 times. Then fold the single paper towel and pat dry.
Smith, former chair of the Oregon Democratic Party, says we can conserve over 260 million kilograms of paper towels each year if we all kept to just one sheet.
Plus, folding the towel supposedly helps dry your hands more efficiently. Everyone wins!
