So, we've used cloth napkins in our household for as long as I can remember. I've purchased some new, lots of old/vintage, have been given some, and repurposed many. You can get a lot of good napkins out of an old cotton tablecloth marred by an unremovable stain or two. I don't even hem them -- just rip along the grain and let 'em fray.
Today was "kitchen" laundry day -- dishtowels, dishcloths, potholders, and napkins. I like to fold them neatly, but I'm not too particular about wrinkles and whatnot. It helps when I hang them on the line to dry, especially on a breezy day, because the sun and wind do a good job of "ironing."
There's a particular set of 6 that were my grandma's and they seem to wrinkle more than the rest. I thought that maybe I'd bust a move and actually iron them today.
In order to do that, though, I needed to clear a path to the cupboard where my iron is... to get the iron and also to have room for setting up the board... which I did, and I'm really glad I did, but the iron wasn't in there!
There's a moral to this story, I'm sure of it...
