Zig Zags In the Kitchen

I am not a fan of the average dishcloth.  Partly because it means hard work is happening in the kitchen, but also because I find them not nearly absorbent enough for my liking. 
I don't like coping with a soggy dishcloth after drying 3 dishes! So I've taken to making my own.  

I have found that thin beach towels make good material -  absorbent, without being overly fluffy.  For the latest batch, I bought this pair of chic chevron beach towels at Mr Price. I cut each one into 4 pieces and hemmed the exposed edges.  
Here they are - neatly stacked with a beautiful Plume and Perch tea towel - a gift from a special friend.
Recycling as always, but this time recycling something new :-)
