Great bar mops - save you money
Reviewed in the United States on December 19, 2015
I decided to start using bar mops instead of rolls and rolls of paper towels after reading advice from The Every Day Cheapskate. She pointed out that even when you buy in bulk, paper towels become expensive. The bar mops absorb more than paper towels, you wash them and re-use them. These work really well, much better than paper. I ordered 2 packages, so I have plenty between washes. I do put some bleach or Oxyclean in the wash, because that keeps them sparkling white. (One objection that I had had to using cloth wipes was that the ones that were colored or printed start looking dingy and yucky after a while.)
Be aware that when you first open the package, you may think the towels are thin and kind of flimsy. That is because they are packed very tightly. Once you wash them and put them through the dryer, they fluff up and are very absorbent. The texture also works well when wiping counters, etc.
I keep them folded in a straw basket on my counter, ready to use and it looks nice. I also have a nice, smallish rattan waste basket that I keep in the kitchen and I just throw the towels in there as they become dirty. When it's full, into the wash they go.
