Towels - helping us in the new normal

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has changed almost every aspect of life.

The virus impacted the whole world, massively affecting most people drastically. For example, changing the way we work, the way we interact, and the way we shop; all have all had to be readjusted to meet and fight this new threat.

While we slowly begin to tentatively emerge from the other side of the crisis with the advice of social distancing measures being slowly eased, many of us return to work, have friends over and visit our favourite pubs and restaurants again.

Our day to day lives have all slightly adapted, focusing more of our time and attention to our hygiene, to stop the spread of germs and infections, and to help protect one another - but more so, protect the National Health Services during this demanding period of time.

It is important to continually maintain vigilant and follow all guidelines, to look out for everyone's safety and health whilst, at the same time, attempting to find some sense of normality.

Many safety measures are in place when outside your homes, including being cautious of any close contact, wearing face masks, and hand sanitiser stations in shops.

There are also several situations at home that need a response, with just a few added safety measures to be put in place, the humble towel can help us to take on these challenges and reduce your risk of any illness or infection.

Returning to work or just venturing out

After a few months of staying at home, going back to work, meeting friends and family for a walk in the park for some fresh air, maybe grabbing some food and a drink at a restaurant - all of which sound appealing.

However, once more people from your household start going out separately, then there are things to think about for when they get home.

You can’t realistically socially distance in most homes, but you do need to make sure that everyone uses hand sanitiser or washes their hands when they return to avoid bringing any nasty bacteria or viruses back into your home. 

Making sure there is always a clean, dry towel available to dry your hands is vital. What would be even safer, is to have your own designated towel to use.

Products like our quick-drying Hotel Essentials Towel Bale may be the most economical way to achieve this, giving you six matching towels of varying sizes. Just choose the colour and you have everything a bathroom needs.

In this way, you can colour code every room in your home, and depending on the range have subtle accents or bright, eye-caching highlights to suit your style.

By using a towel bale, you lower risk of spreading infection. For example, if everyone has their own towel, you eliminate the spread of germs through towel sharing. A towel bale is an easy solution, one package, all the towels you need.

The same situation is true when you have friends over, while it is a relatively safe situation, taking precautions just makes sense, and with a towel bale there’s no hassle. Provide separate wash cloths and towels for guests while they are with you, wash them immediately after.

Of course, all of our towels are also machine washable and easy care, keeping any germs at bay. The durable nature of our towels ensure that they can withstand frequent hand washing, so your hand hygiene is exceptional. With the towels consistently offering long-lasting performance and durability.
