***something to think about***

Often I find people have an unrealistic expectations for reusable items. So here are a few examples I'm listing just to clear up any misconceptions.

Flannel towels will never be as absorbent as paper towels, or as bath towels. Compression is your friend with flannel.

Waterproof sandwich bags cannot hold your cell phone going down river, but they are great for grapes or watermelon!

Sponges can last 2-3 years but in all reality it will depend on what you wash, how you wash and how hard you scrub. I have some that are 3 years old and some have only lasted 6 months because I used them so often and scrubbed things I shouldn't have. Lol

Coffee filters can be a floppy mess. They do not stand up on their own like disposables. We make ours get "stuck" by folding it over the basket wall and then dropping it in. My husband is an expert at this. 😍 I'm awful at doing it and we end up with grounds in our coffee 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yes, sometimes the color from the fabric can bleed. This is normal in ANY fabric. Please wash all your items before first use. See the listing description for care instructions.

Family cloth is not convenient at all. I'm sure I don't need to explain why.

So my point is, we all make sacrifices to help be better for our planet. The entire point of single use plastic and paper is how convenient it is. But in being so convenient it also harms us and the earth.

I'm willing to load all my groceries bag less into my buggy and bag them when I get to the van just to avoid plastic or even paper bags. I'm willing to work with what my unpaper towel can do instead of hoping it would be just like paper towel. And when my coffee has grounds in it.....I drink that shit! Lol. Doesn't hurt me one bit. At the end of the day I didn't throw away or add to our planets trash or plastic problem.

I hope this helps some of you understand reusables better.

Eco-friendly solutions to disposables

Hello, my name is Remi! I'm a stay at home mom of three beautiful girls! I design and hand craft eco-friendly household items.

We toss too many items in out landfills and I am hoping through my shop, together we will make our environment safer for out little ones.

UN-PAPER TOWEL CLOTH ALTERNATIVES ARE AMAZING, EFFECTIVE AND AFFORDABLE!!!

My family uses handmade paper towels called un-paper towels, cloth wipes, family cloth, reusable nursing pads and reusable sandwich and snack bags. I am always looking for ways to save money and reduce waste. my goal is to help you be more "green" and save money with my reusable items! I hope you will join me on this venture!

Here are some of my reviews:
"Highly recommend. Remiusables has fantastic products made of quality materials with perfect stitching. But what I'm most excited about is to ditch the zip lock bags this school year. My kids love the design and I love that they are machine washable and we'll be saving money."
"My order shipped fast and arrived in perfect condition! The towels were extremely well made and I am a very happy customer!"
"Beautiful, eco-friendly towels. Thank you for providing this service and quality of work, Remi! Remi was great to work with and responded quickly to questions."
"Love love love my nail polish remover pads! I use Ella + Mika soy-based polish remover, and these work perfectly with it! I can easily remove my nail polish and since they’re black, no staining on the pads. Highly recommended! 😊"
"Amazing, well-crafted products! The "sponges" are better than any regular sponge I've ever owned. I love the pattern!"

I Love custom orders! If you have a special fabric in mind I would be more than happy to design any of my reusable items for you! All custom orders have a turn around time, but I will be in contact with you on the progress through convo!

Thank you for browsing my shop! Made with love in a smoke free home.

    Hi, I'm Zeus! I can be found laying in the middle of any room, very much in the way when I do, and licking myself very loudly. I try to make sure every package comes with a small amount of my hair. Free! Mom usually removes it though.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

We do offer wholesale on some of our products! Please shoot us a message for more information.

Custom and personalized orders

I love creating something just for you! Each custom order will have a 2-5 week turnaround time. The larger the order, the longer it will take. Turnaround time will be discussed before hand as each order can vary. A $10 custom fee for fabric that needs to be ordered. No refunds or returns on custom orders.

Property rights

Remiusables reserves the right to reproduce custom made items. We also reserve the right to photograph all items we create and may use them at our discretion for advertising or as samples inside our listings.

How long will it take to sew my products?

Processing time can be found in the shop announcement. Processing time is the time needed for me to finish all orders before yours, sew your order and ship it out. Processing time is separate from shipping time.

Do unpaper towels without snaps stay together on a roll?

Flannel does stick to itself. If you're looking for a more secure option snaps may be for you.

Can I cancel my order?

Cancellations will be given for non custom orders within 24 hours of purchase.

Why was my order cancelled?

Remiusables reserves the right to cancel and refund any order at any given time. Please see email that etsy sent for further reasoning.

Restocking Policy

Remiusables will collect a 25% restocking fee for cancellations over 24 hours. If your order totaled to $10 your restocking fee would be $2.50, Orders over $100 are not able to be cancelled. Once a shipping label has been created, no cancellation will be given.

Rescheduling ship by dates.
