Bamboo Towels

If you’re interested in luxury bath linens, you’ve probably heard about bamboo towels, and you wonder what all the fuss is about. You see that articles and ads of bamboo bath and kitchen products popping up all over. Why are bamboo towels becoming more and more popular?

When we finish with our shower or bath, we want a soft towel. Bamboo towels and bathrobes are naturally soft, and therefore, feel great on the skin. In addition, bamboo towels and robes are absorbent, even more so than cotton. And each time you use them, they get even more absorbent.

One fundamental reason for their popularity is because bamboo towels were advertised as naturally antibacterial due to their fibers. These ads were especially for newborn babies or people with sensitive skin or medical conditions, such as ringworm or athletes foot.

According to some sellers, due to the fact that bamboo towels are antibacterial and sustainable, they are also eco-friendly. Most people are interested in protecting and saving the environment, so many people thought that buying bamboo towels is one way to do that.

A bamboo plant can grow several feet in one day during its season. Therefore, they are easy to restore. The downside to using bamboo is that it is imported, and there are chemicals needed to make bamboo into towels. Bamboo fibers are hard by nature and they need to be processed with chemicals to make soft bamboo rayon from them. When bamboo becomes bamboo rayon, it is not antibacterial any more. Experts agree that when it comes to environmentally friendly options, the use of bamboo rayon as a textile fiber does not qualify.

Although they don’t qualify as antibacterial or eco-friendly, they absorb more water and they are softer than cotton towels. Quality continues to be one of the best ways to get the most out of your money. Bamboo towels are towels of quality. Yes, they cost more, but their construction is better and they last for a long time. Therefore, it is money well spent.  However, make sure you buy your bamboo towels from a company you can trust. Imitations exist in a variety of ways, and the same can happen to bamboo towels.

Bamboo Towels

You’ll never guess what the latest craze is to make your bathroom eco-friendly. Want to try to guess?

“Is it saving water with a low-flow toilet?” No, that’s so 2008.

“What about saving water with a better shower head?” No, you’re still off the mark. Think of something other than water.

“I give up. Just tell me already!”

Ok, here it is: bamboo fiber towels. Now, I know what you must be thinking: “A towel made out of bamboo? No thank you, I’d rather use my welcome mat to dry myself.” If this is what comes to mind, however – a scratchy, uncomfortable towel destined to be the latest failed effort of the green movement – you’d be completely wrong.

Bamboo can be used for a whole array of applications. From durable scaffolding on high-rise construction, to resilient, beautiful flooring, it seems that the uses for this Asian plant will never end. The latest among these uses is bamboo towels and bamboo bathroom rugs.

Bamboo fiber is five times more absorbent than cotton, yet it dries even faster. While most types of textiles need chemical treatments or synthetic ingredients to achieve such bragging rights, the structure of bamboo fiber is perfect for drying. Bamboo fibers are oblong and hollow, which explains why they have such amazing absorbent and quick-drying capabilities.

Furthermore, bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, resisting infiltration by staph bacteria, E. coli, and other bacteria types. Not only can a bamboo fiber towel improve your family’s health, its bacteria resistance also means that the towels don’t tend to start smelling.

Finally, bamboo is a renewable resource that can be grown organically. An organic bamboo fiber towel or bathroom rug gives you all the best that eco-friendly products have to offer.
