You’ve experienced it before. You step out of your hot, steamy shower, fresh and clean, reach for your bath towel to dry off, begin to rub it across your face and hair, only to discover it smells like it has been sitting in a dark cesspool of filth breeding mold and mildew for a month.
You know that smell-there is really nothing quite like it, and once it touches your skin, it can take another shower to get the smell off of your own body. You toss the towel into the dirty clothes bin and reach for another. The next day, the same scenario happens, and another bath towel gets tossed in the bin. Wash, rinse, and repeat. In just a few days’ time, your dirty clothes bin is full and you need to do laundry yet again (for the second or third time this week). There has to be a better way.
Sometimes bath towels that are fresh out of your linen closet or taken directly from the dryer can have this musty, not-quite-right smell. It makes no sense-they are perfectly clean, so why do they smell so terrible? The answer is that they actually are not as clean as you would think. If you’re looking for a better way to get your bath towels clean and keep them fresh for more than one use, you’ll be happy to know there is a solution. Bath towels woven with all-natural silver fibers are able to keep bacteria at bay, saving you time, money, multiple laundry loads, and extra showers.
Why Does My Towel Smell in the First Place?
It’s so frustrating. You just washed your bath towels and after one usage they already smell so bad you simply cannot use them again. Or perhaps they last for a day or two before needing the hamper toss. Either way, the manner in which our bath towels are crafted makes them prime real estate for bacteria growth.
Bath towels have a hard job. Day after day they remove water from our bodies, along with any good or bad bacteria that remains on our skin. After we’re done, we either hang them to dry or toss them on the floor (we see you bachelors), flip the lights off in the bathroom and walk away.
What happens to those towels in the hours they spend in our dark, moist bathrooms causes them to grow bacteria at an exponential rate. The bathroom is already steamy from our shower, and our towels have just been wiped over every inch of our bodies, collecting bacteria from the top of our heads to the bottoms of our feet and every spot in between. Once we turn the lights off, we’ve just given the green light to all the germs to have a giant reproduction party.
The results are towels that have that disgusting mildew smell and are already in need of a good washing. Into the hamper the towels go and as aforementioned, you end up doing loads of towel laundry numerous times a week. This is not only a drain on your time, it also costs money and creates unnecessary wear and tear on your machine washer and dryer.
Additionally, if you don’t get your towels completely dry in the dryer and place them in a dark linen closet when they are still even slightly damp, they’ll simply end up breeding bacteria there too, meaning you aren’t really able to use them even one time; they just need to be washed again.
Can Some Bath Towels Kill Bacteria?
Yes! You don’t have to keep repeating this maddening, gross-towel cycle! Silver infused towels are bacteria eliminators. Bath towels that have been woven with natural silver fibers actually have bacteria fighting capabilities that prevent the growth and reproduction of bacteria, keeping your towels fresh and clean use after use, day after day. In fact, towels infused with all-natural silver are so effective, they eliminate 99.9% of all bacteria growth. This means your bath towels are fresh and safe every time you wash them, and stay that way in between washes.
Silver infused bath towels don’t need to be washed as regularly as normal bath towels either, which means you’ll save time, money, and the environment. In fact, we bet you’ll have to remind yourself to wash your towels, because they simply always smell fresh after every use.
Bath towels, by nature, are the perfect storm for bacteria growth. Damp, fibrous, and stored in warm, dark places, the chance for bacteria growth is extremely high. This equates to disgusting smells, more laundry, and wasted time and money. Towels made with all-natural silver fibers are bacteria fighters and can actually prevent bacteria growth from occurring. This means towels that always smell fresh and don’t need washing after every use. Investing in a quality set of silver-infused towels will save you time, money, and frustration, and keep you and your family safe from harmful bacteria lurking in your bath towels.
