What {You’ll|You Will} Need

If you {don’t|do not} have paper towels {on hand|available}, old bath towels {can also be|are also} {used|utilized}.

Step 3.

Blot dry {again |}with more paper towels or {fresh|new} bath towels.

Step 4.

Step 5.

In {this case|cases like this}, you can repeat the {previous|preceding} steps again or you {can|could} {follow|stick to} an additional step.
