a crafty port of call
Whether they are crocheted or knitted, handmade dish cloths are a joy to have in the house, apartment, dorm or work. People I know prefer these to the thin store bought type.
On the practical side, they are absorbent and quite useful for sopping up spills. The same thing that’s true of sponges is true of cotton dish cloths: a damp one absorbs more than a dry one. That may seem counter intuitive, but it’s true. Not to mention eco-friendly when compared against paper towels. Cotton cloths can be used in any room, from the kitchen to the bathroom – even in the garage.
Sure they’re pretty, but they are strong and durable too.
On the cute side, Handmade Dish Cloths are adorable when matched with serving pieces or when used as potholders or tea towels. Create a pretty display in the bathroom with matching soaps.
