I have a ton of kitchen towels. I’m a bit of a germ-a-phobe when it comes to raw meat and general gross kitchen yuck.
So I have a lot of kitchen towels and dishcloths and I change them often. It is not unusual for me to go through 3-5 in a day. And then there’s my Sadie that keeps me rolling through the dishtowels.
I’m not a fan of piling them up on the kitchen counter or in the corner of the floor until it is time to take the to the laundry room.
So I use this:
I typically empty it every other day at the very least. If I forget about it and let it sit longer than that, then I have mildew-y, smelly towels. So I try really hard to remember to not go down the Smelly Towel Road.
I love my little laundry hamper for my kitchen towels, especially on Freezer Cooking Daze! I seem to go through 10+ towels on those marathon cooking sprees.
This definitely works for me!
(I am not a Southern girl that puts on airs – well, only on the very rare occasion – so forgive me for not cleaning out under my sink before snapping this picture.)
I am pleased to link this post to WFMW over at We are THAT Family. Go visit for a ridiculous amount of good ideas.
