Multi-tasking isn’t my strongest skill, so I appreciate when the items in my home do it for me. One such example? The Guest Towel in the Coyuchi Mediterranean Organic Bath Towel collection. What began as an infatuation with beautiful towels (which I would save for my most spa-like bathroom experiences) has since become a loving relationship: flexible, trusting, and there to help with the messes of everyday life.

Coyuchi’s Mediterranean Organic Guest Towel debuted in my kitchen as a display moment, draped over the oven’s handlebar. It’s roughly the size of an average hand towel, and its bright hue and breezy tassels made for a fantastic photo op when I placed it near my colorful cookware and ceramics. But then it remained and started its career as my primary kitchen towel.

Inspired by the flat weave of many Turkish towel designs, the Mediterranean towels are the ideal texture for quick hand drying and thorough surface cleaning. When paired with my favorite organic disinfectants, dust removers, and wood cleaners, it’s more effective at polishing the surfaces in my home than any paper towel could hope to be, and it stays in great condition use after use, wash after wash. These towels are 100 percent organic cotton, so they clean easily in the washer and dryer when paired with low heat and gentle detergents.

The Mediterranean towel‘s tight weave means it doesn’t trap residue, but its slightly surfaced texture gives it grip and traction for cleaning. It’s excellent for polishing finished wood surfaces, glassware, and cutlery, and it has enough traction to keep wet dishes stable as they air dry on the countertop. Caring for this towel is easy, too. I simply shake mine out after each use, hang it to dry, and admire it fondly until my next spill. When it looks like it could use a wash, I just throw it in the laundry.

Believe it or not, I find that Coyuchi’s Guest Towels hold onto fewer stains than the towels I used before, which were actually designed for use in the kitchen. If you’re looking for a kitchen towel that looks good, has the right texture for cleaning, will last through above-average use, and can work equally well in the bathroom, kitchen, or even laundry room as needed, Coyuchi’s Mediterranean Guest Towels are total winners.
