When I discover a product that makes life ten thousand times more pleasurable, simpler, warmer, or just BETTER, I feel the need to share it with the world. Like when my friend told me about the brand Canada Goose and I converted (just like every other New Yorker this winter), I suddenly stopped hating the months November through March–and actually ((almost)) enjoy walks from the subway in 2 degree weather!
In that spirit, I recently discovered a towel that has changed my life. Okay, not life changing, I exaggerate, BUT–it’s at least changed how often I need to do laundry, and that’s pretty great, right?!
I don’t need to go into a rant about doing laundry in NYC (another blog post, another day), and while I can clearly get by washing clothes just once a week, I’ve always hated having damp towels throughout the week. It seemed that no matter which way you’d hang them, those fluffy, pretty Crate & Barrel towels would never completely dry between showers, and it’s been driving me a little nuts for, oh, the past decade.
Enter the wonder product: linen towels! GoodLinens says it best:
100% linen towels will enhance your daily rituals. They feel luxurious. Absorbent, wonderfully textured and lightly exfoliating, they improve with use. Linen towels are well-behaved, air-drying quickly, maximizing storage space, soiling less readily and spending less time in the dryer than cotton terry.
It’s true. These suckers are fast drying and I’ve yet to encounter a damp towel by my next shower. My only complaint is they are a bit rough on the skin at first (I guess this is the exfoliating part?), but this improves with use and age. Investment piece for the win!
