Unpaper towel question

I need some clarification. Are unpaper towels just tea towels or dish towels??
I keep seeing how people are making them or selling them etc and I'm just confused.

The only differences that I can come up with are that some snap together and theres more pattern/material choices. For me the extra $$ isnt worth it.

This made me because I think unpaper towel is a little silly.
I grew up using cloth in the kitchen ( dish cloths, dish towels, tea towels). I think unpaper towel is for people who are used to paper towels and like having them on rolls . It it gets more people to switch to cloth then I guess it's a good idea.

Re: Unpaper towel question

Basically, yes. The ones you see being sold usually have birdseye cotton on at least one side, and then a cute cotton or flannel print on the other side. I have some unpaper towels that i bought, without snaps, because I find they work a lot better than regular old tea towels.

Yep that's what they are. I made a bunch of two layers of flannel T&T for us. We grab them and use them like some people grab and use paper towels. But they are just kitchen towels.

They are thicker than tea towels or dish towels, depending on how you have them made. And most of the makers will make them so that they snap together and you can put them on a paper towel roller.

I love mine!

God bless!

I use dish cloths and dish towels grew up on them it's all the same.. But I do have some "unpaper towels". I bought 5 yards of bamboo flannel, and printed flannel and T&T and added snaps. They fit nicely on a cardboard roll in the paper towel holder.. It's mainly for fancy, and easier for guests to use.
