We stumbled on these HUGE dish towels and ordered a set to check out, having learned the hard way that the real thing is often way different than pictures. We washed them and…they are great, 100% cotton, wonderful-looking and useful for many things. A set of three costs $20; they come in 14 colors.
Having been warned that their colors can bleed, we washed them separately in hot water and then dried them in a hot dryer. They shrank slightly from their original size of 36″ x 24″ to 32″ x 23″, and the white stayed white.
Then we compared them to a normal size dish towel; big difference!
We can see using these jumbos for all sorts of uses: as overlapping tableclothes for our smallish terrace tables, to take on picnics and especially, as drawer liners. We can imagine sewing two together on three sides to make a pillow cover for an standard size bed pillow, to use on a sofa or outdoor chair. And some readers suggested they’d make great wrapping paper and furoshiki.
