My daughter says this is not a "chain letter type" thing, but I think it is. Anyway, I'm participating because I personally know the person I'm sending a towel to, and I told my daughter I wouldn't break the chain.

Here's the deal: you mail one kitchen towel to one person...but you send a copy of the letter to six people. If anyone is interested, send me a PM.

Oops, make that "dishtowels." Thought I could skip preview and correction on a one-sentence post, but of course I was wrong.

Poppa, there are actually people who collect these, or so I hear, they must be people who cook.

My granny loves these. She sent it to me, once, so I bought her a cute towel but didn't pass it on ;)

PG, you don't bake, do you? Need lotsa towels for that...

In theory you get 6 towels, depending on the details of the particulr chain. But I have a LOT of cloth dishtowels and napkins -- mostly homemade from fabric remnants -- I use them in lieu of paper products. Why spend gobs of money to throw away paper when the real stuff works better and is reusable for years?

I have a wonderful batch of towels in my kitchen. Most are cotton, some are very old linen. Lots of different purchases or inheritances, so there are few that match. I use dish towels and wash cloths all of the time, rarely using paper towels. It takes probably a minimum of two months to go through a roll of paper towels because they're only used for things like mopping up grease or really messy stuff.

Because towels spread bacteria. Paper towels are used once and disposed of.

Nigel,

I'd be willing to bet that Nicole runs her dish towels through the washer once and a while! I certainly wash mine frequently (that's why they're mostly very soft and absorbent, because they're washed often).

SRS: yes, and I wash mine (or my wife does, depends who's going into work at what time). But I was answering the question of why should some people prefer paper towels.

Still no takers, I just can't understand why. ;-) (even though I personally hate these things too!)

Read about vintage tea towel quilts here.
