I buy towels at Sam's Club and a local restaurant supply. They come in packs of 12. I buy only white so that I can put them in a hot washer with bleach. I must have over 100 in two bins so I always have a lot of towels to use.

I'm a big fan of real linen towels - they are durable and very absorbent. The best place to get these imo is a thrift store where you can often find then used but in good shape. A restaurant supply store will also have them and there's always etsy and williams sonoma.

I use 100% cotton salon towels. My wife usually orders 20 dozen new towels every year for the business and she gives me 1 dozen for the dishes. I hand wash all dishes (no dishwasher) so towels are very important to us (me).

Where does she order the salon towels from?

Back in the days when I had time to weave, I used loved to make set the loom up with a 40/60% linen/cotton warp and throw a linen weft. I still use towels I wove in the mid '90s. When I buy dish towels, I like linen or 100% cotton.

I prefer basket weave type towels for kitchen use:

Not a fan of towels with a nap like hand or bath towels.

I also like 100% cotton as I wash them with bleach to disinfect them.

These look nice. The bleach doesn't affect the color of the stripes?

I got these at Bed Bath a few weeks ago, but I'm not crazy about them. They make streaks on my cutlery and there were pulls in the fabric after one machine washing.

Real Simple 6-Pack Antimicrobial Bar Mop Kitchen Towels in White

Maybe the basket weave towels will hold up better.
