Clip-On Tea Towel Loops 3 "Unfortunate" Mrs Farrish-Walker 22 February 2018 Great concept but unfortunately the snaps which hold them on the tea towels are plastic and very hard to close even when they are not on the towels. On the towels, even with the bradawl, they are virtually impossible to close. If they are forced closed, they deform so I have ended up by sewing them on. Where they are impeccable because, being plastic, the clips go through the machine without problem. However I continue to buy them, because, even having to sew them on, they are the best alternative on the market, short of buying a lot of tape. Expensive when used only for the tape. A note from the team Thank you for placing your review. I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty fitting the loops. Try piercing a hole in the cloth with the bradawl pin first and then fit the loop. I find pushing the centre rather than the ring helps too.
