A new bit of kit. Almost. Well not really

Warning this contains product placement!
This is nothing new or revolutionary, it’s just a bulldog clip holding some hand towel. But it is something we all use in some form or another. Something to wipe your brushes on.
I started off, like many I suppose, with hand towels from the toilets at work. These did me for many years. I still have a couple of packs left, now used for drying resin pieces after being scrubbed in bicarb solution. Then when I bought a house with my now Wife I was introduced to kitchen towel. Definitely a step up in the right direction. About two years ago I started to take painting a little more seriously. About this time my Wife started to work for her friend Jane at The Begging Bowl, London.
Note: if you want possibly the best Thai food outside of Thailand at non wallet bursting prices try this place. Jane, the Owner/Head Chef, worked under David Thompson (Goggle him) at NAM. *
After a few weeks I was invited down for lunch. When I went to freshen up I was struck by the sheer quality of the hand towels. Soft and luxurious almost like cotton. Brush heaven!
Needless to say on every trip a few would vanish into my pocket.
The moral of this story, check out the hand towels next time you fine dine.

* Other Thai restaurants apparently exist
