Sell on Houzz – Learn MoreWhat kind of material is best for my kitchen towels?When it comes to working in the kitchen, the best quality your kitchen towel can have is absorbency. You may opt to have a few silk-screened or embroidered towel sets to have out when guests visit, but for the nitty-gritty work, you should follow these tips: • Cotton is the king of absorbency. Your dish towels will absorb much more water if they’re made of cotton. Aim for high-quality Turkish or Egyptian cotton, and don’t be distracted by cotton blends. • Use linen for drying high-end kitchenware. The best part about a linen dishcloth is it won’t leave lint, which makes it perfect for drying your glass and fine china. Flour sack towels are also a great choice for their lint-free quality. • It’s all in the weave. A basket or waffle weave will increase the absorbency of your kitchen towel. The raised bumps in the weave can also provide friction for scrubbing those dishes clean. • Give ’em a wash. Just like bath towels, you’ll want to wash your dish towels at least once before you put them to work. How many dish towels do I need?While dishcloths typically come in packs of four to eight, you may decide you need more if you cook large meals, have a large family or don’t own a dishwasher.

Often overlooked, at least until you need to dry your hands, dish towels can bring color, character and vibrancy when draped over the sink, displayed on the oven door handle or neatly placed on hooks.

coffeepot12 Jan 19, 2013 I did a project for my kitchen that would work with this topic. I have a small apt sized kitchen with BROWN cupboards, all of it!! Very dark and dreary. All my kitchen stuffs is sunflower and I had a length (1 1/2 yard maybe)of sunflower cotton material. I measured and cut 5 inch wide strips and 24 inches or more in length. I sewed up this material into giant bands of color that I could slip over the cupboard doors and the drawers. It brightenes up the kitchen with out paint or damage to apt fixtures.

1karrol Dec 24, 2013 i bought a hanging towel at a craft show a few years back. It is the simplest one to make, one seam and one button. You need a dish or hand towel, a cheap pot holder with a top centered loop (2 for a dollar at the dollar store) and a button. Mark the center of the right side of the towel and wrong side of the pot holder. You can use a pencil as it won’t show. With right side up pleat or gather towel to size of potholder. Lay potholder wrong side up on top of towel, matching center lines. Sew them together. Press the potholder in half, add the button to the opposite side from the loop and you are ready to hang it. You now have a hanging towel with double sides. I love this as you can use a heavier towel and coordinating colors to match your kitchen. Super cheap and super easy and super good looking. I just wish I had thought of this first. Reply 3 Report Abuse
