Updated: Nov 13, 2023

Here at MollyMac, we might be just a tad partial to the world of tea towels, but honestly, can you ever have enough of these little kitchen wonders? Even in the age of dishwashers, a generous collection of tea towels remains an indispensable asset for any modern kitchen.

Picture this - some towels are the designated oven mitts, always clean and dry for those hot moments. Others are the fearless warriors, ready to leap into action when a mess strikes. Then, you've got the delicate-touch towels, perfect for polishing your finest glassware. And let's not forget the heavy-duty champs, tackling those towering stacks of dishes.

Now, let's talk about the pièce de résistance – the fancy-ish, also known as MollyMac tea towels. These aren't just kitchen essentials; they're works of art that can instantly elevate your culinary space.

If your tea towel drawer closes without a bit of gentle persuasion, you're doing it wrong – you need more! The ideal number of tea towels for your kitchen is the number you use between laundry days. So, if you go through a few towels while cooking and only do laundry once a week, that's around 14. If you're more of a one-towel-a-day kind of chef, then seven should suffice -.

In the world of tea towels, more is definitely merrier, and MollyMac's designs are the cherry on top of your kitchen's style. So go ahead, stock up, and let your kitchen shine with the beauty and practicality of MollyMac tea towels.
