Question: My dish towels are spilling out of my kitchen drawer. Any suggestions you have would be helpful. Dear Maria, My dish towels are spilling out of my kitchen drawer. I like having many because I make homemade bread each night and I like using dish towels to cover the bread to keep it warm and hot. But then I have a challenge with washing them. Do I wash them with the rest of my towels and clothes? It seems doing so saves time, so I am sure you would say yes. I put my wash on the hot setting. But still, the drawer is stuffed. Any suggestions you have would be helpful. Thanks, Kathie in Florida Response from Maria Gracia Dear Kathie, You only need three to five dishtowels for drying dishes, depending on how often you do laundry. I change out my dish towel every night, but since I wash clothes every day (or every other day), there’s always a replacement on hand. Wow, you make homemade bread every single night? I bet your home smells heavenly! I have three towels I exclusively use for keeping bread warm. They’re kept in my kitchen towel drawer and are wrapped with ribbon so I can identify them easily. Since you make bread a lot, you probably need three to five bread-specific towels. Around ten towels total should be more than enough for ALL your kitchen needs and won’t take up too much space. Get rid of the excess. Chances are, most of them are taking up unnecessary room in your drawer. Regarding washing, I know it may take less time to just toss your kitchen towels in with your bath towels and other clothes…but I wouldn’t recommend this for sanitary reasons. Wash your kitchen towels separately, using the hottest cycle. Hope this helps! Maria
