Towels are one of the most intimate objects we possess. Most don’t think twice about using a towel after a shower, or a swim, or a long sweaty workout. People only see it as a length of fabric, an ordinary, if necessary, household item.
Think about it. A towel comes into contact with every single inch of your body, from head to toe. You needed it from the day you were born, and you will need it every day for the rest of your life. You are never without one, whether you are on top of a mountain or soaking up the sun at the beach. You shouldn’t shortchange yourself – a good towel is essential for your daily needs.
Skin and hair care. People use towels to wipe away moisture. What most people don’t know is that when you rub a towel across your skin it also scrapes away skin cells, and a rough towel can lead to skin abrasion. A microfiber towel is best when it comes to skin care. Likewise, the softness of microfiber prevents hair damage caused by harsh drying.
Basic hygiene. Because a towel is generally used every day, it eventually accumulates dirt and even bacteria, which is why they have to be washed every so often when they start to smell a little funny. With a microfiber towel, you never have to worry about bacteria – the quick-drying quality of its fabric keeps bacteria from developing.
Storage space. A towel can take up a lot of space, which can be frustrating especially when packing. However, a microfiber towel is thinner and made of finer material than regular cotton towels, making storage a lot easier, and packing will feel like a breeze.
