I hand wash most of our dishes. It seems easier whenever King is out of town for me to hand wash the few dishes that I dirty by myself. I takes a really long time for only one person to fill up the dishwasher! Most of the time I have a towel sitting on the counter for drying dishes. I saw a post where a lady jazzed up her towel to accommodate the size of her counter and decor. I knew I had to make one especially since I had some apron fabric left over, which I LOVE! Even made some decorative towels to match. I put a nappy towel on the inside for some extra absorbency.
Yeah, I am terrible at remembering and saving where I saw ideas. If this is your idea, PLEASE let me know so I can give you credit! I have finally developed a way to save ideas with the blog name from where I got it!!
