|a few of my kitchen towels|
I don't know about you, but I frequently drink coffee or eat while driving in the car. I have had far too many coffee spills/drips (good thing the interior of my car is dark!) and crumbs on my lap, so I now always keep a kitchen towel in the car with me. When I eat or drink, it goes on my lap and then I toss the crumbs out the window.
I wash and replace it as needed.
It comes in very handy for a variety of things, actually. My daughter uses it when she has her snack/drink after I pick her up from the bus and take her directly to dance class.
I actually have a fetish for kitchen towels. I tend to favor the ones with chickens on them, but right now I only have one really faded one (its on the bottom left of the photo--time to buy more!). Target always has great ones for different occasions (Halloween, Valentine's Day, seasonal). Kohl's also has a good selection. And Anthropologie always has very charming, vintage-y (albeit overpriced) ones.
As quilters/sewers, some of you probably make your own-- I'll have to add making a kitchen towel to my list-- I'm sure there are some great tutorials out there.
Hope you enjoy(ed) my little tip!!
