Tissues vs cloth in the kitchen

Yes, using tissues instead of cloth can be a more practical choice when dealing with various things in the kitchen. Here's why:

Absorbency: Think of your grandma making food for you which is tasty but a little oily like French fries, pakoda, or some fried snack & removing the oil on a tissue. The tissues will soak up excess oil from food as it has a porous texture that allows them to quickly absorb oil without leaving residue behind.

Disposable: Spilled food or liquid don’t worry, take a tissue as it is disposable, which means you can use them once and then throw it because if you use a cloth it can be challenging to clean and may leave behind a greasy residue. 

Convenience: Tissues are easy to use. They come in convenient packaging & you can place them in elegant tissue boxes which match the interior of your kitchen.

Hygiene: Tissues offer a more hygienic option in terms of preventing cross-contamination. Since they are disposable, there is a reduced risk of transferring oil or foodborne bacteria from one food item to another.
