A new wrinkle…

In conjunction with my “keeping green” I am using cloth towels and napkins. Question: Is it better to use 100% cotton napkins and let them wrinkle, or iron them, (for every meal, NO WAY!) Or is it all right to use no-iron polyester? Help!
Where is Martha when I need her?

Victorians used napkin rings. Each person had one with his/her name on it. The napkin was inserted into the ring after each meal and reused from one meal to the next. I don't know how frequently the napkins were changed. This may work for very tidy eaters.
My recommendation for a green family meal--napkins from recycled paper.
