1. Towel Day. When and why is this day celebrated?
World Towel Day is celebrated on May 25 all over the world. This is a kind of tribute to the memory of the British writer Douglas Adams, the author of the popular science fiction novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
In this book, he shone one large chapter on a terry towel, assuring that the hitchhiking traveler simply needs to have a towel with him. After all, it can replace both a blanket and a bedding, it can save you from poisonous gases or become a weapon, you can wave it around giving a distress signal. And since 2001, the writer’s fans every year on May 25 carry a terry towel with them, everywhere and with everyone they talk only about them, so that those who are not familiar with Adams’s work become interested and run to read the novel.
2. Main selection criteria
As for everyday life, we cannot imagine our life without towels, but we also know very little about them. Towels are first and foremost a hygiene item, very important and irreplaceable. And when choosing them, you need to take into account a number of features so that they serve us for a long time. And if you know what to pay attention to, then it will be difficult to make a mistake with the choice.
In the modern world, choosing a towel has become an art. We are offered a variety of options, but the most important criteria are — material, color, size, density and care. And so, let’s sort it out in order. What aspects should be emphasized when choosing?
2.1 How long should the pile be?
Why is it so important? Terry towels, whose pile length is less than 3.5 mm, do not absorb moisture well, they are not practical and extremely uncomfortable. You should also bypass a long pile, for example 8 mm, because in this case, due to the volume, they quickly fall off, cling to objects and deteriorate. So it is better to choose a pile from 3.5-5mm, this is the best option.
2.2 What thickness of the towel should I choose?
What thickness of the towel should I choose? What is the density of the towel? In simple terms, this is the weight of terry cloth, which is used in the manufacture of a square meter of the product. If you choose a bath towel, then the best option is 450-600 g / m2. If it is kitchen, then 320g / m2 is enough.
2.3 What should be the material?
Different materials are used to make towels today. The most popular is cotton. Cotton towels are soft and comfortable, they are hypoallergenic and do not irritate the skin. You can also find bamboo, jacquard, velor, silk and linen products. But cotton remains a favorite due to its versatility and reliability.
2.4 What size should it be?
Towels size 30×30 — guest or toilet. For a kitchen, the optimal dimensions are 30×60 and 50×70. The universal sizes of facial towels are 50×85, 50×100, shower towels — 70×140, bath towels — 80×160, and for the beach and sauna, sizes of 100×150 and more are suitable.
2.5 How to care for towels?
It is important to wash terry towels before the first use. Then you should wash them 2 times a week if they are kitchen ones, and after each use if they are facial ones. The optimum temperature in the delicate wash mode is 40 degrees, preferably in salt water.
