Every January, I go to the Dollar Store & pick up a 10 pk (5 in each pack) dish rags for $1.00.

Each month I throw out 1 & use a new one.  During the last 2 months #10 dish rag gets thrown in the dishwasher when it starts to smell sour.  Now I get to use a non sour sterilized dish cloth until the new year rolls around.  hidemf3.gif

 

Haven't seen a "dish towel" since the 60's.  Don't know anyone who uses them.   If I hand wash anything which is rare, I've always let them "air dry."

What do you dry your dishes with? Each and every day a clean dish cloth and a few dish towels.

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.

I don't use dish rags and dish cloths. Very unsanitary, you are just moving bacteria all over the kitchen.

I don't use dish rags at all and have never owned any.

 

I have lots of dish towels, but I be honest, I don't use them either. I always keep 2 cute ones hung over the wall oven handle, but rarely, if ever, use them.


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

It seems odd to me, not to use dish towels ,and cloths.

@goldensrbest - how so?  What specifically do you find odd and I'll answer as to why I don't use them.

I like to use vintage China that isn't safe in a dishwasher. I don't mind hand washing, it's relaxing. I let them air dry. Dish cloths folded in half are used on the counter for the glassware and for baked cookies to cool.
