Calling all flour sack towel lovers!
It's been a while since a bought a bundle from Costco, and they no longer carry them, at least in Atlanta area. Which is surprising because this is the South.
I have a feeling that flour sack towels might be disappearing because the newer generation does not have any idea how great they are!
Flour sack towels are disappearing from hardware stores, grocery stores, and everywhere they used to be. I don't know about Farm supply stores because I haven't been to one lately. Flour sack towels used to be as common in a store as sugar or flour, but now they becoming a luxury item with a ridiculous price tag,...as well as being presented in fancy packaging to jack up the price.
Just take a look on Amazon. They are now being offered in bold colors with fancy packaging.
They will give us what we demand, and apparently there is no longer a strong demand for flour sack towels other than for FANCY people. Is this going to be the lost generation that gives into commercial brainwash, or are there still some people out there that are aware that the Flour sack towel RULES?.
The big buck stores ...one called "Williams~something" is charging an arm and a leg for what used to be the STANDARD kitchen towel all across rural America.
Ladies over 50 please chime in...what's up with that!?
It doesn't matter what a kitchen towel looks like.
It doesn't need to have "decorations" and fancy colors!
You need to be able to blast it in hot water and possibly a touch of bleach to sanitize.
There is nothing better than a great flour sack towel. Every home needs a few dozen for various tasks, but not at the price of.... "Organic Flour Sack Kitchen Towel, Set of 3, $14.00"
Stand up American women and bring the flour sack towel back!
Save money on paper towels and start using this wonderful tool in your home...not only for kitchen.
I could make a list but I won't.
I will say that old flour sacks are fantastic for cleaning and shining everything in the house, and have a multitude of uses in the kitchen from rising bread dough, drying dishes,...and I won't go on. (great for cleaning stainless appliances)
ok I cheated...
If anyone has an affordable source for good flour sack towels...please post!
