No-Slip Dish Towels



Sometimes, Martha Stewart is a genius!  This is one of those "why didn't I think of that" ideas.




We hang a dish towel on our oven door - right at kiddos level.  One of the biggest problems is that the towel always ends up on the floor right in front of the oven!


Sewing a strip of velcro has solved that problem!



Now the towel doesn't slip!  Now - can Martha figure out how to help my kids use the towels that are already out instead of just grabbing a new towel?  By the end of the day there are sometimes up to 5 towels on the floor!  At least they are washing their hands, right?

I am waiting for Martha to figure out a way to keep Misty from putting her nose all over any towel I put within reach of a Beagle's nose.

This is pure genius! I can't wait to do this because I always have them falling off with four kids running by, lol. I'd love for you to share this clever idea at Mix it up Monday:

Ahhh! Martha strikes again! That woman and her staff are too smart for their own good. Great job, and thanks for linking up with the Winter Pinterest Challenge!
