I hate scrubbing potatoes. I haven’t met a potato and scrubber combination that actually felt anything but awkward in my hands, until recently when somehow I realized that my favorite dish towels are the perfect thing for scrubbing potatoes!
I use the Bakers and Chefs Bar Mop Towels from Sam’s Club – they are about $0.50 each and I am convinced that these are the best dishtowels ever! They are absorbent and have great texture that makes them great for scrubbing things, including potatoes!
To scrub potatoes, I usually just get the dish towel wet and wrap the towel around the potato and twist it a few times. A bonus is that you can actually see the dirt come off on the towel! I rinse the scrubbed-off dirt off the potatoes after I’ve scrubbed them all, just because it seems faster that way.
I will not be buying a scrub brush again!
