Scotchbrite Kitchen Cloths are AMAZING.
Scotch Brite 3M Microfiber Kitchen Cloth (6-Pack)
These are the most absorbent and efficient kitchen towels I've found. I'm somewhat of a dish towel slut - that and sippy cups - and Crate & Barrel, Williams Sonoma, Sham Wow, etc. can't compare to these Scotch Brite towels. I've been using them to soak up spills, wipe down toys, and dry dishes. The ridges in the cloth are also great for scrubbing without damaging the surface of counter tops, high chairs and toys. Plus, there are no special cleaning instructions. I'm obsessed.
