A large 100% cotton kitchen towel. The layers of the cloth when folded make it more absorbable, and you can easily dry the surface of an item. The mesh-structured towel is very sanitary as it dries quickly when unfolded. It is not just for drying dishes, but it is also perfect for keeping Japanese knives and wooden cutting boards clean and hygienic. Wash before use for the first time. Machine washable. Do not tumble dry.
