I recently had to finally give in and admit that this once well made tea towel really was no longer useful to dry dishes on account of the holes and threads. However instead of throwing it out, I gave it to Sustainable PF who will use it in the basement to clean up all sorts of dirty messes. I always chuckle to myself when I see rags for sale in a store, why spend money on that when old tea towels and t-shirts and even holey (but clean!) underwear are just as good but don’t cost a thing?!
