      I used to go through paper towels then I bought Kitchen towels. I am constantly wiping down counter and cabinets and stuff. I must go through about 6 or 8, maybe more hand towels per day.

      I hardley ever use the paper towels anymore.

      It took some getting used to but I like it now. I think the towels do better also.

      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.
