Miss Marple and Plastic

Agatha Christie’s character Miss Marple existed in the time before plastic was widely used in everyday life.  No plastic cups and plates, no plastic wrap or bin bags, and certainly no plastic shopping sacks!

I have been attempting to use less plastic and single use items in my home over the past few years.   Paper towels and napkins were the first to be replaced by cloth toweling and napkins.  Individual cleaning towelettes have been replaced by a small lidded bucket filled with cleaning solution and rolled up microfiber cloths- which can be washed and reused.

No plastic found in this amazing pantry-crockery, wood, and copper!

  1. remember my experience of the “communal napkin/towel” when I babysat a certain family (starts with “Shiv”)? We ate spaghetti and then they started passing around a towel and they wiped their faces and hands. When it got to me I kind of tossed it to the next person with two fingers… I’ll stick to paper thank you! But I suppose if each person had THEIR OWN fabric napkin to use it could be okay… 🙂


      1. I’m glad you use all of those vintage linens I’ve given you over the years- they are perfect for your little cottage. 🙂 I’m excited to get to work on your cozy fireplace this winter. I expect we can get started in early-mid February !! 🙂
