In fact, it's no exaggeration to say that dish towels are the mainstay of the kitchen.
In addition to wiping dishes, you can also place a dish towel on the kitchen counter to use as a drainer basket to keep your kitchen tidy, and it is also recommended for gently wiping washed vegetables.
Also, using a dish towel to wipe the table is more eco-friendly than using kitchen paper. (It's a good idea to consider hygiene and decide where you'll use it!) That's why you want to wash your dish towels properly. Cleanliness is the best!
Normally, we recommend soaking and washing the dish towels. It is also recommended to boil and wash it once in a while.
How to boil and wash dish towels
●Make a detergent solution using twice the standard concentration of detergent.
As a guideline, about 3g (about 1 teaspoon) per 2 liters of water is appropriate.
● Boil the detergent solution and boil the dish towel.
The temperature should be between 80℃ and 100℃, preferably an enamel pot. You need enough detergent solution to cover the dish towel.
●Please turn it over with chopsticks or stir occasionally.
Boil it for about 10 minutes and the dirt will come off. Be careful not to get burned when boiling!
How to soak and wash dish towels

It is effective to use hot water of 40℃. The recommended soaking time is 30 to 60 minutes. One of Rinenna's recommended points is that the color does not fade. If you are concerned about the smell of dish towels, we recommend Rinenna #2. Additionally, the Omniutti Bucket is currently on sale at Rinenna.
