You are looking at a Bossy kitchen staple: the dish towel.
Dish towels should not be hung in the kitchen for show, they should be used and abused, as indicated by the large yellow stain covering the entire left half of this particular dish towel because Bossy is keeping it real until you beg for mercy.
The wasteful use of paper products is a Bossy pet peeve. Bossy can’t remember how young she was when she attempted to imitate the theatrical unfurling of the paper towel roll–something she no doubt witnessed on TV moments before–but she does remember her mother’s reaction, “There’s no need to use more than one sheet from the paper towel roll, if that, ever.”
Do you know what Bossy is referring to? The person who unrollllllllllllls several perforated sheets in one unnecessary swoop, to dry something minor that could have been taken care of with something less disposable?
This is where the dish towel comes in. Bossy uses it to dry her clean hands and to dry her vegetables and to dry the water that collects along the side of her sink, and and and.
Bossy won’t even mention the environment like she just did–but think about your wallet. Paper towels and napkins–and even paper cups and plates–are expensive. Cut your use in half and you will notice a decent savings.
Speaking of which, in Bossy’s kitchen it’s not uncommon to see this:
It’s a single sheet of paper towel, drying over the faucet. Because, dudes, those things are reusable!
