One kitchen problem that I have never really solved is "wipes". I currently use J Cloths but i find that wasteful - so I end up using them past the best before date and have a tiny quasi-rag that barely does anything. The benefit is that they do not go mildew.
The synthetic sponge seems to do a lousy job of wiping - just when you need it most you push on it and oozes water onto your or table.
Bottled sprays and paper towels are a non starter for me - you still need to wipe down surfaces with some of rag/towel.
Dishrags seem to go mildew very fast unless strategically hung over the sink - a process that interferes with the sink's constant use and cannot be reliably implemented by all family members.
Some people talk about boiling and bleaching these things daily etc etc. that is just not going to happen in my world.
What is the best, most practical solution? Some type of kitchen rag - that gets thrown in the laundry at day's end? What brand? Does that work?
What do you do?
