When it comes to towels, no two are exactly alike – much to the chagrin of the consumer! How do you know which towels will clean best, be most comfortable, and have better absorption than the others? With so many choices on the market today, it’s easy to get lost in the fray as you look for the towels that truly meet your needs.
The good news is that there are a few rules of thumb that you can follow to find towels that are actually a good fit for your application.
- Bath Towels – For durable towels that have the ability to absorb water while remaining soft, you’ll likely want to choose cotton or cotton-blend towels that are two-ply. Not only will you see more use out of two-ply towels, but the cotton fabric also offers a great absorbent quality when cared for properly.
- Car Wash – Most car wash centers use towels for drying and detailing. There are different types of towels to choose from, like terrycloth or microfiber, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. What’s most important is that you select towels that will be durable enough for multiple cleanings and can hold up in between washes. They should also be made of fabrics that won’t scratch or damage a car’s interior or exterior surface.
- Cleaning Wipes – Another important application for towels is when they are used for cleaning, whether it’s in a garage or with hotel housekeeping. Again, choosing towels that have good absorbency is important, but it may also be a good idea to consider whether one or two-ply will be the best choice. If you plan to do some serious scrubbing, a heavy-duty option may be the best fit.
