To save on paper towels, and land fill. Tie a hanging towel in the kitchen. They are hard to find, but easy to make. I use mine, when cooking and cleaning the whole time.

I keep a towel on a small stick on hook near my sink, this works for me.
I took a nice pot holder, folded it in half and then took the hand towel and also folded it in half and sewed it to the pot holder, I sewed a button on the pot holder and then hung it on my stove door handle. Comes in very handy! I would suggest not getting the towels at the dollar store, they are too thin.
OOPS, I didn't see the article about this very same thing...sorry about that.
you can hang your towel from your beltloop and have it handy all the time.
You can find these most times at craft sales.
I too use one and it does save money.
Here's another way: during my childhood, and I do it now, I have a 3 rod metal attachment (I don't know the actual product name) to hang 2 handtowels and keep them in place with a colored clothespin!
I just use a regular towel rack in between my Fridge and the end of the counter. I still do dishes by hand unless it's a Holiday, only two of us, so I can hand my dish cloth and a dish towel there. I get the smaller one, I think it is for hand towels, not the large towels. It works for me.
Guess I am lazy because I don't want to bother unhooking those to use them so I just drape a regular kitchen towel over my oven door handle ;-)
