Most homeowners will go online or visit a home store, buy the first kitchen towels they see and then wonder why their glasses have streaks, why their dishes have fluff or why their pots and pans aren’t dry after drying. This is a common mistake and many people aren’t aware that there is a range of options available, each one offering their own unique advantages to help you get everything in your kitchen dry after washing.
Even if you own a dishwasher, there are times when you will wash by hand and want to dry the items to pack away, leaving your kitchen clean and neat. This means that ideally every kitchen should have four different kitchen towels at the ready, ensuring that each item is dried properly before putting it away, reducing the risk of bacteria growing and helping keep the family healthy.
One of the first kitchen towels you should be looking for is a cotton waffle option. These are easily identifiable with their cross design that looks like a checked pattern. These towels provide outstanding absorbency and are the perfect choice for drying pots, pans and hands. They are able to soak up the water left in pots and pans with ease, enabling you to pack them away with complete peace of mind.
The next choice is terry options. Terry is another form of cotton which is soft to the touch. You can identify it as it’s the material often used for bath towels and bathrobes. Terry is also highly absorbent and is the perfect choice for wiping down damp countertops. You can also use these as a hand towel in the kitchen area for when washing hands as you prepare meals for the family.
