Default dish towels . . .

excerpt:
"Scientists from the University of Mauritius examined 100 towels that had been used for a month."


they spend _money_ to learn this kind of stuff?

and then they call themselves "scientists" . . .

Default Re: dish towels . . .

I'm a big user of paper towels during cooking from prep to finish.
Dish towels are used for wiping dry the larger utensils and pots and pans that are washed and put away.
Occasionally also for wiping dry cups etc that may still be damp out of the dishwasher.

Bleach is used in white towels.
Colour safe bleach in the ones with designs, etc..

I, too, use paper towels like crazy, though I have one dish towel on the fridge door to wipe my hands.

I hardly ever remember to use it, though - guess it's just as well!

Default Re: dish towels . . .

I tend to use dish towels to handle hot pans and to dry knives. Other than that, occasionally folded to sit a hot pan on.

Default Re: dish towels . . .

I use cloth towels during prep, etc. and then then go in the laundry.
using a towel for a month? anyone ever heard of anyone on that time line?
that's one of the more absurd assumptions I've seen.....

A month?
They must be short in the towel supply dept, or just lazy.
Yuk!
