Let us start with a couple of examples. A clean bowl of water is usually just a clean bowl of water whereas a stagnant puddle of water with a lot of dirt and sediments is all that plus a breeding ground for mosquitoes, bacteria, and whatnot. Any food item left out for a while starts getting exposed to germs and bacteria and eventually starts rotting. This is exactly how a towel works as well.
Every time you wipe your body with a towel, it gets exposed to millions of bacteria and germs, and when the same towel is used again, you’re just rubbing those bacteria and germs back onto yourself. But this is the 21st century, the generation of great innovation, and thankfully, the dirty towel problem now has a solution- Anti-Microbial Towels!
This is where we finally break it to you: yes, anti-microbial towels work, and your skin will thank you for using them later on. Reason being, anti-microbial towels come infused with materials and fabrics that are naturally resistant to germs and bacteria, so when the towel comes in contact with the said germs and bacteria, they get neutralized then and there itself! This means that these towels don’t collect microbes and so you don’t have to worry about rubbing yourself with a load of microbes every time you use your towel. This means every time you use a fresh, clean anti-microbial towel, you are protecting yourself against eczema, rashes, dandruff, acne and many other skin and hair problems.
These towels also come with an added advantage. Most anti-microbial towels are also very skin friendly and soft as they are usually infused with materials that are natural (in case of Doctor Towels, such as coconut and banana) products. For as many as upto 100 washes, the anti-bacterial properties will protect your skin from damage and the coating may start to diminish with every single wash in any fabric with anti-bacterial properties. So it’s always recommended to get new towels every once in a while. Anti-microbial towels are already on a huge popularity rise, as using them has reported reduced instances of hair and skin based problems, resulting in lesser expenditure in treatment.
Getting yourself an anti-microbial towel will be a great way to invest in yourself, but don’t forget to make sure you get the right one after thorough research, as there are many towels which claim to be anti-microbial, but actually aren’t. It’s always better to spend a little more on a higher quality product to keep yourself infection-free in the long run. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure.
