I Switched to These Absorbent, Stylish Kitchen Towels and I’m Never Going Back
One of the items I’m most picky about in my home are my kitchen towels. As a result, it takes me forever to buy new ones, and I end up using paper towels more often than I’d like. Not all kitchen towels are made the same. Some look nice, but aren’t very absorbent. Others are absorbent, but are purely function over fashion. It’s hard to find a towel that’s everything you want it to be at once, even though some come very close. I was already a fan of Weezie for their bath mat, hair towel, and bathrobe, so I was excited to see that they launched a line of kitchen towels. Their bath towels are already editor favorites, which placed some pretty high expectations on the kitchen towels. How would they hold up in comparison? I put the Weezie Kitchen Towels to the test in my little kitchen, and trust me, they don’t disappoint.
As soon as I opened my pair of kitchen towels from Weezie, I had a feeling I was in for a treat. I don’t typically associate softness with towels for the kitchen, but Weezie’s made me pause to appreciate the feel before I started to use them. At 19” x 30”, they’re also larger than I expected them to be, which was another plus in my book. The towels are two-sided: The top is a smooth, patterned flatweave cotton and the bottom is terrycloth. The combination fabric, a first for the brand, immediately made the towel a game-changer for my kitchen. I chose the Red Windowpane towels, and the scalloped edges give their farmhouse-style a modern twist that looks really nice in my kitchen. They’re also available in French Blue Windowpane and Green Stripe that are both just as stylish. I keep my towels draped over my oven handle, but they have built-in loops so you can hang them on a hook for quick-drying, too.
Speaking of drying wet towels, the true test for the Weezie kitchen towels would be their absorbency. My biggest struggle with kitchen towels in the past has been that they don’t soak up liquid. I understand the appeal of towels that are water-resistant in that the liquid pebbles on the fabric more than sinks into it. It’s what makes it easy to clean baby and pet blankets, which is an extremely useful feature for accidental spills. However, I want my kitchen towels to absorb water, not just move it around on the counter. Not to mention those towels also tend to feel nasty after you use them and don’t dry quickly at all. I have a few kitchen towels like that, and they stay in a drawer. That being said, Weezie’s kitchen towels knocked the absorbency test out of the park. Not only do they soak up water, but they don’t get that gross, damp feeling afterwards that prevents you from using them again right away.
Like I said, I’m picky with my kitchen towels and don’t particularly enjoy shopping for them, but I’d get another set of Weezie’s five-star kitchen towels in a heartbeat. They’re large, absorbent, soft, and stylish. They’re even nice enough to use as hand towels for the bathroom. Plus, like Weezie’s other products, you can have them monogrammed for a low additional cost. I have never been genuinely excited about kitchen towels before, but Weezie’s are certainly worth celebrating!
