      We actually do use hundreds of washcloths per week. But sometimes during the busy times of day we end up doing a lot of hands and faces, tables, counters and spills all at once. I’m really very picky about using separate cloths for each child and I don’t like using clothes for certain more disgusting messes.

      So we find that paper towels and wet ones do come in handy. We don’t go through tons of paper towels, especially with the price! I’m on the verge of buying another hundred dish clothes and saying goodbye to paper towels.

      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.
