    "But wait!" you say. "I would also like to own some slightly less fancy and adorable kitchen towels that I could actually bear to bring into contact with a dish!"

    Option 1: these cotton Ikea towels ($4 for 4)

    ikea.com

    Totally cute and absorbent but also so cheap that when they start to get shmutzy, you can just throw 'em out and start again. Sadly, they're only available in Ikea stores.

    Option 2: these basic flour-sack towels ($25 for 6)

    chefscatalog.com

    These are what chefs use in restaurant kitchens, so you know they can take whatever you throw at them and/or mop up with them.

    Get them at Chefs Catalog.
