Things Worth Knowing About Your Towels

In Chapter 3 of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams thus explains'The Towel':

"A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth […] you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapor […] sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth […] you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough."

Okay, so we know that the daily bath towel is about the most versatile staple in our household. It’s indispensable and does a number of things for us.

To name a few, it helps us to dry after a shower, can be used to stay warm, beat anxiety, relax, and can be used as a home-decor accessory to brighten up our living space.

Over the last few years, there-s been a growing popularity of premium bath towel sets. More and more people are discovering the awesome benefits of high-quality towels.

But with so many options available today, choosing the right one has become a touchy affair.

So, how do you choose the best bath towel set for yourself and your family? It’s simple. Just like you do for your gadgets, you should educate yourself as much as you can before your next purchase.

Things You Should Know About Towels

Towels come in a variety of sizes. The minimum towel ensemble in your bathroom is a bath towel, hand towel and a face cloth.

Face Cloth (Wash Cloth)

This is the puniest member of the towel family and comes at an average size of 30 x 30 cm. Since you apply it directly on your face, this should always be of high-quality fiber like pure cotton or bamboo. It's also important it's clean and dry.

For those with acne or delicate skin, use a face towel made from 100% long-stapled Egyptian or Turkish cotton. Alternatively, you can also opt for bamboo muslins. Both help to stimulate circulation and cell renewal during the drying process.

Hand Towel

In most bath towel sets, hand towelscome at an average size of 35 x 75cm. This is the one you hang by your sink to dry hands. It’s also the one your guests will be using after dinner (and judging you by the quality of it).

It’s best you have a collection of hand towels. Put out a fresh one (and not one with toothpaste stains on it) every time you have guests. We recommend soft cotton ones. The soft touch of natural fabric will help to relax them and enjoy the evening more.

Get ones with approximately 400 'gram count' which means they are plush but not overly so. You do not need to spend a fortune. You can buy luxurious plush ones for under $20 right here.

Bath Towel

Don't fall asleep on this one. Your bath towel can set the tone for your mood and lifestyle. This should be a luxurious experience.

The best bath towels come at an approximate size of 70 x 140 cm. Against conventional wisdom, bath towels should not weigh like an elephant. Heavier means more fabric, which means it stays damp for longer and aids bacterial growth.

Get one that feels plush, breathable, light and made from high-quality pure cotton or bamboo. It's an eco-friendly choice and these towels are highly absorbent. They are also some of the best quick-dry towels which are anti-fungal and resistant to static.

Towels offer an intimate experience. Quality towels can genuinely lift your spirit even on a cold day. It's important that you treat your wet sensitive skin with quality fabric made from natural fiber.
