I love a cute dish towel. I switch dish towels up seasonally, plus I have color-coordinating ones, which I like to pair up with each other as nice little pattern-mixing schemes for my kitchen.

Given their crucial role in keeping your kitchen clean, it should come as no surprise that kitchen towels need to be washed pretty often.
But turns out, it’s a lot more often than I realized.
