Ever since we posted about those Twist Euro Cloths, we've been meaning to get our hands on them. Since ridding ourselves of our paper towel habit, we knew we needed a replacement, and fast. So, this weekend, as we cruised the aisles at Trader Joe's during our weekly visit, we spied the Super Amazing Kitchen Cloth...They looked promising. The packaging promised a fast dry, durability, super absorbency, and years of use. We even liked the colors: aqua green and bright red.
And, seriously? They're $3.99 for a two-pack.
They're cheap and green and they work exceptionally well. Apparently this is because of the material —viscose— a fabric that absorbs 10 times its weight in liquid.
We're pretty erratic dishwashers, so a lot of water ends up on the kitchen counter. Whereas we might have reached for paper towels in the past to clean up the mess, now we just grab the Trader Joe's Super Amazing Kitchen Cloth, wipe, wring, and hang over the sink to dry.
Anyone else as happy about these cloths as we are?
