PRODUCT STORY
This stylish towel has absorbed two principles of great design: usefulness and visual appeal. The generously proportioned towel is made from absorbent 100% cotton, but its innovation is a magnet sealed in its corner, allowing you to simply hang it from your refrigerator or any metal surface when not in use. The magnet is highlighted in industrial-chic style with an oversized care label in the upper left corner, sporting blueprint colors and Helvetica text. Made in China.

Care: Wash with like colors. Do not bleach or tumble dry. No not iron the magnetic label. Not suitable for children: this product contains magnets.
MATERIALS
cotton, magnet

Splashes, spills, dripping dishes. It seems like there's never a kitchen towel on hand right when you need one. But you won't have to dive for the drawer with this clever design. The Magnetic Dishtowel sticks around, so it's always there when you need it! Would you hang one from your fridge, a metal shelf, or a magnet bar in your kitchen?

Not approving items made in China. Who wants to buy a towel that can't be bleached or dried in the dryer!

As long as I can wash it I am happy. I can never find space for the 101 tea towels my kitchen seems to collect! Look forward to throwing it on to the fridge after use!

I REALLY like this item, however I am hoping that for $20.00 you will get more than ONE towel. Otherwise, it'll be a pass for me!

Too limited for a dish towel, washing problem, don't like the magnet logo, also who wants a dirty rag hanging around, and made in China.

Price is far to high for a dishtowel, I guess it would be okay if you really don't have a place to hang your towels, but I would rather buy a cheap hook than hang a dirty towel on my fridge!

Great idea - but make the magnet come out for ease of washing AND drying AND bleaching if necessary. It's a kitchen towel after all! It's going to get dirty! Also, couldn't something as simple as this be made here?

Made in China is not good. This is too expensive for a towel that can't be machine dried. It's not that big, and would not put this on my fridge.

Can't tumble dry a towel? If it was strong enough to prevent my dog's fondness for stealing towels I'd consider - but it's made in China again.
