If you want to hear how I finished off my towel with a border, keep reading! The size of your towel is very important. Cheryl December 23, Reply.
From the Brahms Mount Blog. Sustainability is not a new idea at Brahms Mount. Natural fibers and earth-friendly practices were woven into the fabric of our company from day one.
Every part of our process, from sourcing yarns to manufacturing products, involves making choices with minimal impact. We use colorfast dyes to achieve our vibrant hues. We follow the safest possible methods to give our whites their characteristic brightness. Our natural, undyed fibers are just that — pure and undyed, with a clean, untreated finish.
Feel-good fibers, in every sense. Linen is fast drying and highly suitable for line-drying. Line drying is quick and crisp compared to the matted mess of a line-dried terry towel. All Brahms Mount towels are pre-washed and pre-shrunk. While our products have the ease of home washing and drying, they are still made of natural fibers and should be cared for accordingly.
Brahms Mount keeps rolls of woven fabric on our shelves. An in stock product may not yet be finished and ready to ship. For this reason, all orders should be expected to ship within two weeks. Brahms Mount weaves premium cotton, linen and wool blankets, throws and towels. Our textiles are woven on antique shuttle looms by local artisans right here in Maine, USA — a centuries-old manufacturing tradition we carry on with pride.

Am I supposed to have different towels for hand drying, dish drying, dish scrubbing, and counter cleaning? In general, I have a cloth what I call a dish cloth that I use to wash dishes, wipe down counter tops and tables, etc.
And then I have a dry cloth a kitchen towel that I use to dry my hands, dry dishes if needed, etc. I usually only have one of each out at the time. I have kitchen hand towels that are fluffy like bath towels and flat weave dish towels that are for drying dishes. And then I have old washcloths for cleaning the toddler and rags for cleaning the floor!
So if you use the term interchangeably, do you use the cloths interchangeably? Thanks for your help! My dish cloths are smaller, like the size of a washcloth you would use to take a bath. My kitchen towels are similar to the size of a bathroom hand towel. I find it much easier to wash dishes or clean up the counter with something smaller.
And much easier to dry my hands or dishes with something a little larger. We have a problem with our kitchen towels smelling like sour milk, almost a vomit smell even though they have not been used to clean up vomit! This smell will not go away when they are washed, and sometimes stinks up other things in the laundry, particularly jeans. After reading your website, I will start washing them seperately and more often. I also use vinegar.
Take a peek at it. What is the standard for changing a dish cloth? I usually change it out at least once a week. I am a firm believer that you should not wash your hands several times a day, dry them on the towel hanging on the oven door, wash the dishes and then dry the dishes with that SAME towel.
A HAND towel is used after you wash your hands — now your hands are clean, right? In my book, it is the same answer when it comes to using the same towel to dry hands all day, then use it to dry dishes. I would appreciate ANY comments or suggestions. If dish towels or clothing sour, I place them in my washer to spray them thoroughly with Oxy clean, then wash on sanitize. If I use 1 for cleaning up after meat, the floor, etc.
A study was done recently, where bacteria was found in washers even after the rinse cycles. I then air dry them put in the dryer. I think dish clothes should be washed on there own and exspecially not with your underwear. Would you wash your dishes with your underwear, probably not, so why would you wash your dish cloth with your underwear?
I tested out what I read which was that the fabric softener and dryer sheets as well put a thin clear coating on the lint trap. I tested it out with my own lint trap and yes the water did pool therefore the holes get clogged and overheat the dryer and can cause of Fire. So if you use a fabric softener, you should clean it very often with soap and water. Yes, one has to be very careful with that lint trap and keeping it clean and free of residue. Sadly, so many home fires are started this way.
I use the small bar mop cloths for drying dishes and I use the larger kitchen bar mop towels for drying hands one hanging on the counter. I use another kitchen one for cleaning the counter. I wash them in vinegar, sometimes bleach. I wash them separately from the other towels.
I change then daily and let dry before putting them in the hamper. I do use paper towels for food prep drying fruit and soaking up grease. Love the site BTW. Oh, you use towels? Yeah, we do too! I think you should go ready this laundry guide to things you might not have known about the best way to clean your towels. Thanks to MamaLaundry for setting me straight! Your email address will not be published. Yes, that is a fresh pan of brownies on the stove. Here are a few suggestions to keep your kitchen as clean as possible: Raw meat — whether it is beef, pork or chicken — can cause serious food-borne illness.
Food-borne illness can range from an upset stomach to far more serious conditions. I am very careful with raw meat and raw eggs and if there is any question at all, I change my cloth or towel. Why be sick when I can avoid it? These are items that must be laundered on hot. Hot water only makes detergent dissolve and work even better. Kitchen towels also need to be washed on a regular or heavy duty cycle — never on delicates or gentle even if the care label says to do so.
The gentle cycle does not provide enough agitation to adequately get the cloths clean.
