What Do You Think These Are?

When my husband bought me a Kitchen Aid mixer a few years ago, these potholders were included as a free gift. I noticed the first two times the cleaning lady was here, the potholders were in the laundry along with other towels she used to clean our apartment. I confine myself to my craft room while she is cleaning to stay out of her way so therefore I haven't actually seen her use them.
I keep the potholders in the same drawer as the dishtowels so after the first time, I made sure that the potholders were on the side with the other potholders. In fact, I buried them so they were under a mitt potholder. But the following week, the potholders were in the laundry again.
I have noticed when I watch television where Koreans are cooking, if they need a potholder, they use the mitt type. So I'm thinking she doesn't realize that they are potholders.
Am I going to tell her? No, I don't really care. I just found it hilarious that she is using them for cleaning. It's actually a great idea and seems to work well. Who am I to disagree? When in South Korea...

So Becky, Hide them in the craft room next time! LOl!

Also most Koreans don't have ovens, and might not use pot holders much anyway.

Holly: You are too funny. I know she can't figure out what I do in my craft room and what all that stuff is for.

Helena: You are absolutely right
