The kitchen bench can become very messy when preparing dinner, and bacteria can linger. When preparing chicken, in particular, it is extremely important that all surfaces are cleaned and dried thoroughly in order to avoid the risk of cross contamination.

We have found the perfect tea towels that are super absorbent, and stylish at the same time, making them the ideal choice for any kitchen.

Made in Australia by KE Designs, and featuring designs by local artists, these microfibre tea towels are gentle on surfaces but durable enough to be used hundreds of times.

Microfibre is a lightweight synthetic material that consists of an interlocking blend of two fibres: polyester and polyamide. When woven together, these fibres create a net-like surface area covered with millions of spaces to trap moisture, dirt and debris. The micro fibres are able to get into tiny nooks and crevices whereas the traditional cotton cloth are not. The nylon component of the fibre also produces a static charge that attracts dirt, pulling it in and trapping it until the cloth or pad is washed.

The benefits of using microfibre are:

  • Enhanced cleaning power
  • Reduced water and chemical usage
  • Helps reduce cross contamination

At a recent photoshoot, we used KE Designs Tea towels as props in our shots. The vibrant colours and spectacular designs complemented our Spring theme perfectly.

Now they have taken pride of place in our kitchen.

It’s not every day that you come across a product that has it all; good looks and a purpose.
