The ideal kitchen towel?
I don't hand-dry dishes often. Every morning I make what is the equivalent of a fruit and veggie salad for my parrots, so I'm always rinsing and drying my hands. My kitchen towels get sopping wet.
The "dish towels" available in every box store never impressed me. They wear out quickly, aren't very absorbent, and the ones with the stamped pictures on them look crummy after a few washings. They're always just a wee bit small, too, I think. Right now I'm just using regular hand towels, like you'd put in the bathroom.
I LOVE my microfiber cloths (approx. the size of washcloths), and use them for everything. But I usually use them damp, so they don't grab at my skin.
So I was wondering, have any of you bought microfiber kitchen towels (larger than the washcloths)? If yes, do you like them? If yes, which ones/where did you get?
Or... what else would you recommend?
