PAPER TOWELS??? You gotta be kidding me. Have you ever stopped and thought just how much weight
and room they take up compared to using your sleeve? Yeah... the simple shirt sleeve!
If you drool, just wipe your face off on your sleeve. Baby burps up food... just wipe off on sleeve. Spill coffee pouring it in the morning, yep... bend over and use your sleeve.
Hey!!! Ya got two of them. Depending on what's being spilled decides which sleeve. For an example in the kitchen... milk, yogurt, any dairy products... right sleeve! Out in the garage greasy or flammables get the left. The thinking is... should it burn a little I don't care so much about my left arm as I am right handed.
Now for every rule there will be exceptions! One that I have is when I spill beer. If I should, I lap it up as it won't all squeeze out of a shirt, especially if its cotton. Now polyesters do allow for more "squeeze factor" and thereby allowing more beer to ooze out, but its seems plain stupid to absorb it and rather than lap.
Sure lapping up a spilled beer "may" take longer, BUT it also is a good opportunity to teach one why its important NOT to spill beer in the first place. Of course you can use either sleeve YOU want, but the quick and fast rule I suggest is... left sleeve for irritants/flammables if you are right handed.
Should you have anymore difficult problems please feel free to ask me what's best, cuz people say I'm sorta the Dear Abby of problem-solving.
And hey... have a groovy day and watch your step around pets.
