Tea Towel emergency!

(19 Posts)

My tea towels are a shocking embarrassment. Shocking. Holes, stains, horrifically ugly. I need to replace them all. Can you wise mumsnetters point me towards some naice tea towels which are good quality, absorbent, a decent size and pleasing to the eye? Please? I'm looking for the holy grail website for tea towels, like Soak and Sleep bedding (oh how I wish they did kitchen towels...). Anyone??

I've found the asda towelling style ones to last very well. I change mine daily so they go through a lot of washes..

Primark do very nice ones.

Mum bought some new ones from JL the other week - proper traditional glass cloths. Not cheap though.

I got really nice ones from john lewis. proper cotton, not linon, they don't crease and can be boil washed.

Dry For! ink{http://www.todryfor.com/\www.todryfor.com]]/} My favourite.

I have bought them from Tesco in the past but it was more out of convenience than anything else. Home&Bargain would be worth a look if you you do not want to spend a lot.

Try TKMaxx too.

I'd certainly buy Tesco again, in fact, from above replies, seems most supermarkets and chain stores do good quality these days. What we need is another use for souvenir-type tea-towels, usually linen and need ironing and always donated by other people.

Use linen teatowels to dry and buff windows, mirrors, picture glass after you've cleaned them.

Mrs B that website is great. I want new teatowels now!
I'm currently using Ikea ones. After a good few washes they are nice and absorbant.

These only need to skim the surface of your dishes and the dishes are dry (really). www.e-cloth.com/household-range/professional-finish-tea-towel
