A small dish towel.
Once you're done washing the dishes, you need to dry them too! While many people leave their dishes on the dish rack to dry overnight, others would rather use a dish towel to wipe off the water and get them into the cupboard — and get the job done — faster. Many dish towels are made out of cotton, but others have begun using paper towels, since they are less likely to harbor germs.
Found in most kitchens around the world.
