Drying chicken and other uncooked, rinsed meats: I use a clean dischloth, rinse it immediately in hot, sudsy water, hang to dry, then toss into my kitchen laundry basket.

Bacon is easy. Instead of frying, bake at 350F on a broiler pan. The fat drips through the rack into the pan, the bacon turns out as crispy as you like, depending on how long you leave it in the oven, and you don't need to drain it. Scrape the fat off and refrigerate or freeze for making gravy for biscuits, flavoring sauces or egg dishes.

Why Not? How To Go Paper Towel-Less in the Kitchen

I keep a basket filled with clean dish cloths handy in place of paper towels. For floor wipes, I keep another basket filled with cut-up old bath towels. I had several frayed white towels, so all my floor wipes are white too, which makes them easy to launder.
