Hand Towels vs Dish Towels -same/different?
I know this is slightly OT, but all of you "TKO types" probably have an answer for me.
Do you have different towels for each duty and do they never cross? I may expose myself as totally filthy, but I don't. I usually air dry dishes in the second basin, but occasionally have to wipe a wet clean dish down for instant reuse. I figure that since today's hand towel is for clean hands, it is also good for a clean dish. After all, the same skin cells get on the dish get on there while I hold the dish I am wiping out. That's how I grew up and I know we all grow up differently.
So I ask this because: I am having some old friends stay with me for a few weeks. Years ago they came by for a visit and she looked horrified at me when I handed her my "hand" towel to wipe out a dish while she was helping me in the kitchen. Am I committing a faux pas by practicing this? I may have to go out and buy more towels to get me though each week...
