Do you press your tofu? I recommend it. After years of doing it with oodles of paper towels I finally started using a couple clean kitchen towels (the unlinty,non-terry kind), folding them in half or thirds , putting one below and one above the tofu. I also use a cast iron skillet as my weight (but that is because it lives on my stove in easy reach). If you don't have non-terry towels you can put one paper towel above and below to protect the tofu from towel lint. Of course the towels get all wet, so I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have a wash machine handy.
