Functional and fashionable, our tea towels are one of the most versatile and underutilized household items! Here are 20 different ways to use your new kitchen towel:
1. Gift It!
Tea Towels make fabulous hostess, housewarming, teacher, and birthday gifts especially when paired with our coordinating greeting cards. A new kitchen towel is something everyone needs; so it is the perfect Christmas gift for your children’s teachers, a welcome gift for your new neighbor, or the hostess gift for the next dinner party you attend.
2. Replace paper towels
Replace your paper towels with a basket of tea towels. Since they are reusable, they are much easier on the environment and your wallet. Tea towels are also so much better looking.
3. Dress Up a Wine and Cheese or Charcuterie Board
4. Line a Picnic Basket
A tea towel lined picnic basket not only looks great, but will also absorb any spills and can double as a napkin or small serving area.
5. Dress Up Your Powder Room
Dress up your powder room by rolling tea towels up in a cute basket or stack on a decorative tray. You can even hang our tea towels and use them instead of a mundane hand towel.
6. Keep Bread, Muffins, or Rolls Warm
Keep bread, muffins, or rolls warm by wrapping them in our tea towel inside your serving basket at your dinner party. Our kitchen towels are breathable so they let the moisture out and hold the heat in, so your bread stays warm and doesn’t get soggy.
7. Cover Rising Dough
8. Wrap a Gift
Our tea towels make perfect eco-friendly reusable wrapping paper. Make your gift even more special by thoughtfully wrapping it in another gift, one of our tea towels, a stunning zero-waste gift wrap. We even have matching greeting cards for some of our tea towel prints!
9. Keep Your Cutting Board From Sliding Around
Keep your cutting board from sliding around on the counter when you cut by slightly dampening our tea towel and placing it flat under your cutting board.
10. Keep Your Tea Pot or French Press Warm While They Infuse
This was the original purpose for the tea towel!
11. Create An Eye-Catching Centerpiece
Create the perfect centerpiece by lining a bowl with one of our tea towels and filling it with fresh fruit.
12. Dry Your Dishes
Our 100% cotton tea towels are super absorbent and soft on your hands.
13. Use It As a Hot Pad or Trivet
Protect your table or counter from a hot dish by folding our tea towel and placing it underneath your dish.
14. Freshen Up Your Kitchen’s Look and Feel
Freshen up your kitchen with a beautiful new tea towel. Transform your kitchen aesthetic with this elegant workhorse! It’s surprising how something so small and inexpensive as a beautiful kitchen towel can add beauty and joy to your space. Draped over your kitchen sink, or hung on the range, our towels are guaranteed to brighten up your kitchen and bring a smile to your heart every time you see them.
15. Use as Placemats or Napkins
Just fold as needed!
16. Keep Your Herbs, Lettuce, Kale and Other Leafy Greens Fresher and Crispier
Spread your washed leafy greens across a tea towel and gently roll from one edge, then place it in a bag and put it into the refrigerator.
17. Place Under the Lid of a Crock Pot to Catch the Water Drips
This is helpful when cooking breads and desserts in the crock pot because the tea towel absorbs the condensation and keeps it from dripping back down on your food. It also is the perfect trick to stop the condensation drips from thinning the crock pot sauce too much.
18. Use As a Make-Shift Bib
When eating something messy, like crabs, or when you have a small child visiting, use your dish towel as a bib!
19. Stylish Wall Art
Hang one of our towels on the wall for very inexpensive wall art. Add style and pattern to your kitchen at a very low cost by hanging up or framing a kitchen tea towel.
20. Line a Basket or Use it on a Serving Tray
Dress up your serving tray to make your guests feel extra special.
