There are certain kitchen items that need to be left out on display either because you use them constantly; they would start to smell if you hid them away; or you simply don't have room for them within your cupboards. That's fine, just try to make sure that these items look good. You don't want an ugly bottle of washing up liquid by your sink, for example, you want a subtly stylish container, such as this L.A Bruket, pump-action dispenser. What's more this natural liquid is made with organic essential oils of rosemary and lemongrass and will not damage your hands or the environment.
Same goes for the washing up brush and counter cloths too. Avoid those lurid coloured ones you see on supermarket shelves. Opt for something with a designer feel instead. This free-standing scrubbing brush, which comes as part of a the Bucket Dishwashing set with matching micro fibre cloth, soap dispenser and container, also comes with a replacement brush head.
And, when it comes to tea towels avoid anything white or light coloured. Tea towels are often not only used for drying dishes, but for wiping oily and greasy hands on whilst cooking. Those light-coloured ones quickly lose their glistening brightness. Go for darker colour teatowels and the same goes for napkins too, this Hopsack set won't show the marks.
