Like we said the other day, IKEA is best used in moderation. But there are some good buys there and we have a few favorites that have done very well for us. Here's another IKEA pick: the all-cotton TEKLA towel! Now, these don't actually come in napkin form, but...

...we bought an extra dozen to use as folded cloth napkins for more informal dinner parties! We love their delicate yet strong cotton fabric, and the French-inspired red stripe. We find that the thin fabric doesn't wrinkle as badly as our heavier-weight fabric napkins.

We have over two dozen of these very inexpensive towels. We do think that most kitchen towels should be inexpensive; we have to replace ours regularly. They get burnt, soiled, stained, and basically shredded. It's nice that we can cheaply replace them for less than $0.50 apiece.

TEKLA dishtowel, $0.49 at IKEA. Not available online.
