Can You Use Flour Sack Towels in Baking?

Baking is one of the most popular hobbies in the USA, and if you’re thinking of taking up the hobby, there’s one item that you may not first think of when you’re making your essentials list and that is flour sack towels.

Flour sack towels have always been used in kitchens, even back when they were flour sacks used for storing rice and grains, so it’s natural that they should transition so well into modern day kitchens. Their use in baking is unparalleled, and they can make your baked goods the best in the neighborhood.


Using Flour Sack Towels in Baking

Flour sack towels are extremely versatile and can be used in many ways, and baking is one of these. 

The shining example of how flour sack towels can be used in baking is in the baking of bread. Not only can they be used to cover the bread while it proves and rises, but they can also be used to keep the bread warm. Historically, this was the main use for flour sack towels.

Once your bread is done, you can also use your flour sack towels in the presentation and decofration of your loaves. Picture a basket of bread lined with a patterned flour sack towel, it will look charming and rustic, and really elevate your bread.

Flour sack towels can also be used as an alternative to cheesecloth in baking. The tight weave of flour sack towels allows juices to pass throgh while retaining the solid bits, and the same goes for cheese. Our absorbent dish towels are clean and food safe, which also makes them ideal in the kitchen for straining, poaching, proofing or extracting liquid. 



Other Uses for Flour Sack Towels in Your Kitchen

As well as baking, flour sack towels have numerous other uses in the kitchen that make them the truly versatile towel that they are. 

You can use them for herb storage. To do this, spread the flour sack towels and lay your washed herbs on top to air dry them. If you leave the towels slightly damp, they will preserve your herbs and keep them aromatic for a long time. 

This method of storage can also be used for your vegetables to keep them crisp and fresh, making them an ideal storage method for your fridge, pantry or kitchen. To keep your vegetables fresh using a flour sack towel, simply place them on the inside of a plastic bag, and voila, crisp lettuce for longer.

And when you are done with your baking, flour sack towels are the perfect companion in your cleaning up. Our flour sack towels are extremely absorbent and lint-free, making them the best towel for drying your dishes and cleaning your surfaces after use. They can also be used for on-the-go cleaning.
