Q. Do I need separate hand towels and oven mitts for Pesach?
A. Hand towels do not have to be replaced for Pesach. Rather, they should be washed on a hot cycle in the washing machine before Yom Tov.
Theoretically, the same would be effective for oven mitts, but since (a) pieces of food often adheres to the mitts, and (b) they are used in close proximity to food, the common practice is to have separate oven mitts for Pesach.
