What kitchen towels does Ina Garten use?

We love that too, but our rude tea towels from Driftless are also made of white cotton and add a little humor to the situation.  

Why is it called a Tea Towel?

A tea towel is described as "a fabric for drying dishes" by Merriam-Webster. Tea towels, which are frequently made of linen, cotton, or a combination of the two, have their origins in England in the 18th century, when they were used to cover baked pastries, dry fine china, and insulate teapots during tea ceremonies (thus the name). During this time, people practiced needlework on tea towels and frequently gave friends and family tea towels that they had embroided with flowers, initials, or other motifs. Tea towels have evolved along with the times; by the 19th and 20th centuries, it is said that most tea towels were manufactured with striped or checked fabric for a more beautiful touch.

What is the difference between dish towels and kitchen towels?

Towels come in a wide variety of varieties when it comes to kitchen linen. Dish towels and kitchen towels, however, are frequently mistaken. So what makes the two different from one another? The size and fabric of dish towels are often smaller and thinner. These are made to keep your hands dry while cooking and to dry dishes. On the other hand, kitchen towels are bigger and composed of a thicker substance. When choosing which kind of towel to use, it's crucial to think about the chores you'll be using it for, such as wiping down countertops and cleaning up spills. A kitchen towel is definitely your best option if you need something strong that can manage more difficult cleaning tasks.

Here's how:

  1. Pick a tea towel of decent quality. While writing on it, you want one that is absorbent and won't bleed through.
  2. Choose your ink. The greatest results can be obtained by using kitchen linen ink, which is created specifically for use on towels.
  3. On the towel, scribble your name,  a funny statement or a catchy phrase. To avoid soaking through to the other side, use a delicate touch. 
  4. Before using the towel, let the ink completely dry. Smudging isn't exactly what you want!

What towels are best for kitchen?

Nothing compares to the sensation of a brand-new towel, do you think? But, not all kitchen towels are made equally. There are a few distinct towel kinds that are more appropriate for particular kitchen duties. Here is a list of the top kitchen towels, regardless of what you plan to use them for.

If you need to wipe down countertops and surfaces, you'll need a microfiber cloth. These are super absorbent and will pick up even the tiniest crumbs. You can dry dishes with a cotton tea towel if you like, too. They're absorbent and lint-free, so your dishes will be spotless. Lastly, if you want something tough enough to scrub pots and pans, go for a sponge towel. They have more texture, so you can use them for tougher tasks.

So stock up and enjoy the amazing feeling of using a brand new towel every time you step into your kitchen, no matter what your needs are.
