Towels - helping us in the new normal


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

The way we work, the way we interact, the way we shop have all had to readjust to meet and fight this new threat.

While we slowly begin to tentatively emerge from the other side of the crisis and many of us return to work, have friends over and visit our favourite pubs and restaurants, it is important to maintain vigilant for everyone's safety whilst, at the same time, attempting to find some sense of normality.

There are several situations at home that need a response, and the humble towel can help us to take on these challenges.

Returning to work or just venturing out

After a few months staying at home, going back to work, meeting friends in the park or maybe grabbing some food and a drink at a restaurant all sound appealing.

However, once members of 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 washes their hands when they return to avoid bringing any problems 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, as with everyone having their own towel, there is no chance of passing it on 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. Their durable nature ensures that they can go through many washes and will still offer long-lasting performance and durability.

Multiple options to suit you

Depending on your own personal taste, we have a range of options to best suit your needs.

If you're looking for a silky smooth finish, our Marlborough Bamboo Towels are perfect for you.

Not only do they offer all the softness you could wish for, because of the bamboo fibres used in production, these towels are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, odour resistant and hypo-allergenic making this towel ideal for people with sensitive skin.

Why not indulge in luxury with our five-star Hotel Premium Towels, some of the thickest towels you will find.
