  • Got a sunburn? A chilled paper towel can immediately soothe those areas
  • Chilled paper towels can reduce puffiness to your eyes

  • That roll of paper towels can work with your baking soda to help eliminate odors in the fridge
  • Helps quickly cool any beverages. Just wrap those Cokes or beer in a paper towel while they're in the fridge to chill them even faster
