How To Always Have a Fresh Hand Towel

It’s no surprise that we LOVE white towels, and generally speaking they require no additional care than another color, but for some reason it’s really hard to keep the hand towel size looking nice and white.

The area that gets used starts to look greyish after only one or two uses and it just looks ugly and dirty, and can be embarrassing if guests stop by.

And that’s why I’ve adopted the washcloth one use program:

Use once, and throw in basket

Mum started using washcloths instead of towels several years ago, (she was obviously inspired by some fancy hotel or restaurant) and I think it’s somewhat genius.

They are so small they hardly take up any room in my regular wash, I even think it’s more eco friendly because I’m washing the bigger towel less.

We all love the pack of RE Washcloths at Target that run round $3

And as soon as they start the grey attitude, they make it into the rag pile.

win and win!

    I do the same thing with Costco white hand towels. It’s usually me getting them dirty washing off my makeup at night :).
