    Yes, this is great. He's right about those motion detector, paper towel dispensors.

    I do this because of the planet, of course. In addition, I do it because I don't want bone dry hands. My hands are super dry as it is. I apply hand cream to them directly after drying with the towel and will need a little moisture with my hand cream to make my hands touchable.

      Nice! Shake and fold for a greener planet... and softer hands!

    This really works, and I use it all the time! So awesome.

      same - a friend told me about this a while ago and i've been doing it ever since...i don't know why i get so much pleasure out of it, but i do.

    I have taught this trick to a few colleagues since I first saw this. Thank you for posting it. One towel is all it takes!
