Kitchen Corner: Tea Towels

 

I refuse to dedicate an entire drawer to kitchen towels, since mine are stocked with culinary tools and flatware sets. Instead, my antique Nantucket basket (top) and one made in Africa are pressed into service, filled with neatly-folded tea towels and absorbent cleaning cloths. Speaking of tea, it is not possible to remove tea-stains from towels with laundry detergent, so mine are made of amber-coloured, waffle-weave cotton, and the ubiquitous tea droplets just blend in perfectly with this cloth, creating a barely noticeable mottled effect. ©M-J de Mesterton
