1.) For cleaning and 2.) As a napkin substitute
For day to day use, I don't see the need to buy paper napkins when I can get paper towels and use them for cleaning and as napkins. But, when we have guests over to the house it is nice to supply them with something other than a paper towel next to their plate. *Enter cloth napkins*
I think this is one of those things that you start to have an appreciation for once you have your own place and start becoming an "adult." I no longer find myself lusting after clothes, but rather homewares and my latest obsession has been patterned & printed cloth napkins. I love that you can find a special pattern/print for every season, holiday and occasion. It's amazing how something as simple as a napkin can completely transform your dining table aesthetic.
For my birthday, I asked for my first set of linen napkins and have been very excited (maybe overly excited) to use them when guests come over for dinner.
