Works for me Wednesday

If you are anything like me, when you need towels you watch for a sale and buy a few. The problem I have found with that is the quality of the towels. They don't seem to last long. It seems it doesn't take many washings before they start to fray and lose their fluffiness. The last time I got towels I tried something new. I got them from an online store called the American Chair Store. It happens to be based in my town and I know the owners are honest and reputable.
These towels have held up very well and remain soft and fresh smelling after many washings. Another thing I got from them were flour sack towels. These are great for cleaning. I especially like to use them for mirrors and glass. They don't leave lint on the glass like paper towels or the other old towels I used to use. So - if you are in the market for towels, I recommend that you check out the web site for The American Chair Store. They have great products and great customer service. For other tips, visit Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer.

I checked out their site. I have never seen restaurant aprons! They look like a complete dress! I would like one of those because I am forever getting something on me when I cook. I always wear a bib apron.

Mari,

Flour sack towels are great but hard to come by. Grandma used flour sacking for multiple things, including dusting and cleaning.

Thanks for the tips on the towels. I'm in need of some good ones and will check out the link.

Thanks also for your prayers for Brandon. Your friendship and caring is very much appreciated.

Blessings,
Mary

Thanks for this info. I never seem to have luck with towels. Last year I bought very expensive ones (with a Macy's coupon), but I am not happy with how they are lasting. I might try your place next.

I hope you and your family are well. I am just gettting caught up in my blogging - it seems like I haven't been home in a week!
