When you shop for bar towels, you may notice that the price increases with the weight of the towels. It can be tempting to cut costs by simply reducing the weight of the towels you buy. However, that number can make a big difference to your staff. Here are a couple of considerations when you select new bar towels.
- A towel with a heavier weight won’t transfer as much heat. This can make a big difference if a member of the kitchen staff tries to take something out of the oven with a bar towel. A weighty enough towel can protect your team member’s hand, whereas a cheap towel could lead to a burn and the kitchen being shorthanded for the rest of the evening.
- A heavy bar towel is more absorbent. This is especially important when the towel is being used at the bar. Whether a drink spills or condensation is starting to build up from drinks that have been on the bar for a while, it’s important for your bartender to be able to take one swipe and mop everything up rather than merely spreading the liquid or brushing it onto the floor where it could become a slipping hazard for workers or patrons.
