Dish towels are a staple in every kitchen, and they have many uses beyond just drying dishes. One such use is tying them on your stove to create a makeshift splatter guard. This can be especially useful when cooking with oil or other liquids that can easily splatter. In this blog post, we will go through the steps on how to tie a dish towel on your stove, including the materials you will need and some tips for making the process as easy as possible.
Before you begin, you'll need to measure your stove to determine the size of the dish towel you will need. Measure the width of your stove top and add an extra inch or two on each side to ensure that the dish towel will fully cover the stove. Measure the height of the stove from the top of the burner to the bottom of the stove top, and add an extra inch or two to ensure that the dish towel will fully cover the stove.
Using the measurements you took in step 1, cut the dish towel to the appropriate size. Make sure that the edges of the dish towel are straight and even.
Fold the dish towel in half lengthwise, so that it is now half as wide as it was before. This will help to create a tighter fit on the stove.
Place the folded dish towel on top of the stove, with the fold facing towards the back of the stove. Take the two ends of the dish towel and tie them together at the front of the stove. Make sure that the dish towel is tight against the stove, but not so tight that it will be difficult to remove later.
To ensure that the dish towel stays securely in place, use safety pins to attach the dish towel to the stove. Place the pins on the inside of the dish towel, near the top, so that they are not visible from the outside.
Tying a dish towel on your stove is a quick and easy way to create a makeshift splatter guard that can help to keep your stove top clean and protect your kitchen from messy spills. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you'll be able to create a dish towel splatter guard that is the perfect size for your stove and will stay securely in place. Happy cooking!
