Whether you are someone who washes and dries dishes by hand out of necessity, or simply out of preference, there’s a good chance that you use dish towels. These handy tools can help to make your dish cleaning and drying experience a much more faster and efficient one, as long as the dish towels are of high quality. They provide plenty of other uses as well.
Although dish towels are a rather simple product, the truth is that not all dish towels are created equal. In fact, they can all be quite different from each other, especially if they are of lower quality.
So what are some of the characteristics of the best dish towels? There’s actually quite a few, so read on to find out more.
Dish towels, like their name suggests, are used on dishes. They can be used for both cleaning and drying. That means that the towel is both thick and durable, while also having enough absorbency to easily soak up excess water when hand drying.
Other varieties of towels such as bath towels are much more plush and softer than dish towels. While dish towels do have a degree of softness to them, they are thinner than bath towels, and have tightly-woven fabric that allows the towels to both scrub dishes and hold up to repeated washings.
When used for cleaning and drying dishes, dish towels should always be fresh and clean. Because of this, it’s common to have multiple matching dish towels, making it easier to always have a fresh towel on hand when needed. These towels should be set aside for washing after each dish cleaning or drying session.
Dish Towels are designed to be functional in the kitchen, but this should not be at the expense of how they look. These towels can also add to the overall decor and appeal of your kitchen when not in use. Dish towels can come in a variety of colors and designs, ranging from monograms to solid colors.
Dish towels have a clear purpose, so there are a few factors that should be considered essential when in the market for the best dish towels.
This is one of the most crucial aspects of a dish towel. While you will be doing plenty of cleaning with these towels, you’ll find yourself doing drying more often. Drying off dishes involves absorbing a high amount of moisture, so dish towels need to have a high absorbency rate.
If you have a thinner dish towel made with poor quality materials, you’ll find yourself spending much more time when needed while drying your dishes. It might take you a few towels in one sitting to get through drying off an entire load. Quality dish towels use a higher thread count, and quality materials such as cotton.
The bigger the dish towel, the longer you can use it. This allows you to fold up the towel in layers for better absorbency, or use multiple parts of the towel for different drying purposes. Large sized dish towels also enable you to use less towels at one time.
Lint can be a huge problem when drying dishes using either the wrong type of towel, or a cheaper dish towel. These towels tend to shed with each use, leaving scores of unsightly lint balls all over your dishes. These lint balls can be hard to get off when dry, and also cause you to have to wash the entire load all over again.
The best dish towels are towels that are completely lint-free. This means that they are constructed better, and use better materials that will not only hold up to repeated uses but also prevent any kind of lint shedding during their use.
Dish towels get washed and dried frequently. Because of the constant washing and drying, a dish towel needs to be able to withstand the use and abuse without showing any ill effects. Cheaper dish towels eventually begin to unravel, lose density, and leave lint on your dishes.
High quality dish towels are tightly-woven, and are made to hold up after hundreds of wash cycles. This not only ensures better performance, it also means that you’ll buy dish towels much less often. Cheaper towels end up costing you more money in the long run.
At The Homemakers Dish, we aren’t fans of cheap dish towels that wear out quickly and cause more problems than they solve. We decided to manufacture our own dish towels that hold up to the demand of daily kitchen use, while still looking stylish.
These towels are made from 100% quality cotton, and are very high-density without being overly heavy or bulky. This enables the towels to absorb a large amount of moisture when you are drying your dishes, helping to cut down on the time and effort needed to get the job done.
We don’t see the point in small dish towels, so we were sure to make ours on the larger size. This means you can usually just use one towel to get the job done, or fold it up into more layers to soak up even more water when drying.
We believe that dish towels should never leave any lint behind, even after repeated washings. These towels are tightly-woven using the finest cotton, meaning you’ll never have to worry about little annoying balls of lint all over your favorite wine glasses when they dry.
Our towels not only work great, but look great as well. The towels are mostly white, and feature a vintage stripe design that is available in five different colors, making it easy for you to find the right color complimentary to your kitchen’s aesthetic.
