We all have the same problem, don't we? As soon as we wipe our fingers on a towel hanging on the oven door, it falls off and we have to pick it up again. Or, we bump into it and it gets crooked (not a very good thing for those of us who like things looking neat all the time!).
So, I was really excited when I saw an idea in Martha Stewart's Living Magazine (September 2009) to help this problem.
Take a look at this...
The ends of the towel are stuck together with Velcro pieces. I'm glad it won't fall off anymore. I ran out of Velcro after doing my second towel, so I will have to plan to do more in the future.
To do this with your kitchen towels, measure the length of the ends and cut your strips accordingly. (There's about an inch margin on each side of mine, but you can go all the way to the edge if you'd like). Sew the stiff loopy side to the front on one end. Then sew on the soft fuzzy side to the back on the other end. You can also use iron-on Velcro strips if you don't have a sewing machine.
What new fun tip have you come across that makes your life simpler or easier? I would love to hear your ideas!
