Our napkins are made to be used everyday. They stand up to loads of washing and no ironing is required. BUT, just because you CAN wash them all day long, doesn’t mean you HAVE to. In my house, our gently used napkins remain at the table for extra use. To keep them straight, we give each person a signature color. Katherine keeps her current “rotation” in a basket on her sideboard. My friend, Ann Marie, has a monogrammed napkin ring for each member of her family.
(Need another reason to switch to cloth? When compared to a roll of paper towels, a stack of napkins takes up roughly the same space, looks better and lasts much longer!)
