Dish towels don’t get enough respect. A clean, absorbent cloth is one of the best, most versatile tools in the kitchen and is totally underrated. Maybe you’ve been on the paper towel train for too long and you don’t yet know the power and number of things you can do with a clean towel. Let’s change that.
In our efforts to move towards a zero / low waste kitchen space, we have to make the items we have on hand pull double duty. Multi-use tools are an absolute necessity to combating the scourge of single use kitchen items. Get creative with the materials you already own! And please, I beg you stop buying paper towels. Or at least put them in the far back corner under the sink and only pull them out for mysterious pet puddles.
So what are all of your dish towels good for besides replacing paper towels?
