RJF once asked me if my dishtowels just wiped water around or if they were actually absorbent and useful at wiping down counters and dishes.
I recommended the ones Marnie & I use. Marnie had picked them out herself, you see, and she seemed to like them just fine.
Marnie, who was in the other room during RJF's initial questioning, came over to inform the two of us that in fact our dishtowels don't absorb anything.
The other day, while drying clean dishes, I decided that Marnie was right — our dishtowels totally suck!
Why does Marnie like them?
And what the hell is the point of dishtowels that can't towel off dishes?
