The Friendly Kitchen Dishcloth
Crochet or knit yourself a stack of pretty dish cloths out of colorful cotton yarn. Relaxing project, cute in the kitchen, very clean to use, work great for dishes and counters. Kinda old fashioned, kinda hip style for your kitchen.
What? You got some homemade ones from Aunt Nelly and they got all smelly and gross, now you'd never use them again?
That's so sad. HERE'S the secret you need to know: Dish cloths are good for one day. At the end of the day, rinse well, and hang to dry overnight. Pop them in with your regular laundry. This makes them the cleanest thing around for wiping cutting boards, counters and dishes. Now who wants a yucky old sponge?
Tip: make a basic set of seven for your dish washing, one for each day, then make a second set in another color that will be just for wiping counters. Makes a great kid project!
