With the daycare, I can see going through 2 rolls a day. One thing
you might want to try is to squish the roll so it does not roll as
freely on the spindle. This will help reduce “paper run-away” excess use.
Paper towels, that will be a bit tricky. Thing is, I have a roll of
paper towel that I bought 6 years ago, before I moved here, and have
not used it up. I use cleaning cloths that are washable. For a
daycare, you might want to get some inexpensive wash cloths and hand
towels to use instead of paper towels. Just have the stacks handy
and a basket to toss the dirties into. You’ll be amazed at how easy
it actually is to do this once you get into the habit. I also find
that towels clean better than paper towel. I’m sure the toilet paper
trick should help with small children, though.
