Barkeeper's Towels

As I have gotten older, I have discovered the best dishrag for me is actually what is known as a barkeeper's towel. It's certainly bigger than a dishrag but more of a square shape than a tea towel, and is made of really absorbent cotton with a great nap to it.

I have large expanses of countertop in my kitchen and I found by throughly saturating a barkeeper's towel and using it as the dishrag to wipe off countertops, I could accomplish the task much quicker and easier. When I am cooking, I keep a bowl of warm water with a small amount of dishwashing product in it set in the bottom of the sink which makes it so easy to wipe up the mess I have made.

When I am done with it, I soak it overnight in the washer or run it through with a bleach load. I always start with a fresh one each morning and have never regretted doing away with the putzy sponges or thin dishrags I had.

I love the "bar towels" or "bar mop towels" instead of kitchen tea towels. When they get too stained they become rags with an "x" written in permanent marker on one corner.

Never thought of using them to wash the dishes also, excellent. I go through several of these towels a week, always have a fresh one available. Launder with bleach.

I Googled "barkeepers towels," they don't exist. Providing a link on where to buy would be helpful.

You can find bar mops at BJs, Sams, WalMart, even Dollar Tree sometimes. Some are thicker than others, but they all have a pronounced nap on them. They can also be used as napkins instead of paper ones

I love those myself. I don't buy the regular towels anymore. The bar keepers towels are the best.
