Paper towel to cook shiitake?

tulasipriya | Jul 19, 201305:21 PM     8

I was just watching a video on the Cooking with Dog channel (great videos) over at Youtube, and at 1:36, they instruct to put a sheet of paper towel (photo attached) over boiling shiitake mushrooms. Can somebody tell me what the purpose of this might be? Is it to keep the 'shrooms submerged? The idea of the chemicals used to process the paper leaching into the cooking water does not appeal to me; I'd probably use a clean handkerchief instead. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWLNZz...
