    Spinoff of towels- how often do you change kitchen towels?

    I was thinking about this the other day when using my dishcloth. How often do you change your kitchen towel- for drying hands/dishes; and how about your dishcloth- the one you use to wipe up the table or counter of crumbs & spills?

    One more thing- do you have a seperate towel for drying dishes than you do for drying your hands after you wash them? My grandma has seperate ones & I accidently used her dish drying towel to dry my hands & I thought she was gonna take my head off!!

    I usually use a kitchen towel not more than 2 days... if it's just for dying hands. Now if I've wiped cake batter, juice spills, or bacon grease off the counter that kitchen towel is in the washing machine so fast!!!!

    Kitchen towels go from the countertop to the dishtowel rack to the floor real fast when I am in there. The fresh ones are piled up on the countertop for drying dishes or wiping hands. The ones that get used for wiping hands go to the dish towel rack, and the ones used for the dishes get aired out on the air rack. Once I start cooking and making a mess and spilling stuff, whatever is on the racks get demoted to spillduty and then hit the floor. Then at the end of the day, I grab them all up and they go into the wash.

    This is kind of what we do. The dish towels get demoted down to ground clean up and then into the wash. They rarely seem to last a day. I do have a separate towel for drying my hands. I have a little hook up high and the kids can't reach it.

    Everytime I do a load of laundry (at least 3 - 4 times a week if not more) I check to see if they need to be thrown in the wash. Rags always go, tea towels maybe not depends what I used them for.

    Hi Karen!
    I change my dishcloth(the one that hangs around the sink) at least once a day. I do have a separate towel for drying hands that I keep hanging up on the oven. Of course, DH refused to use it and goes through 100 paper towels a day!

    Fine
    I normally use paper towels to wipe counters, the sink, and tables. We also have a dish towel (used only for wet dishes) and a hand towel (for wet hands). Those are changed maybe every 2-3 days, or more often if I'm doing much cooking.

    I usually go through a minimum of three washcloths and 2-3 kitchen towels a day.
