What kitchen towels do you use?

JoanN | Mar 9, 2006 12:33 PM

I’ve finally worn out all the kitchen towels I’ve been gifted over the years. You know, the ones with scenes of Paris or pictures of Italian wine bottles, and am on a quest.

Needs: 1) an all-purpose kitchen towel, preferably just plain white, no cutesy-poo designs or editorial comments, to wipe up spills, use as a potholder, dry pots and roasting pans. The usual. 2) towels on which I can dry pasta. The two towels need not be the same.

Problems: I bought bar wipes and love them for their absorbancy. But they stain something awful and fall into shreds when bleached. I also tried an 80% polyester/20% nylon microfiber towel. Great for dusting and drying glassware (which I don’t usually do anyway), but they stain just as easily, aren’t any good for drying pasta, and can’t be bleached either.

Any recommendations and/or sources for me?
