Kids Robe

As you age, you probably worry about the health of your skin. But what about your kids? Caring for the skin should begin at a young age, and that includes worrying about the sun. Yes, the sun is a beautiful thing, but it’s one of the main causes of skin damage, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

One of the best ways to teach your kids a valuable lesson is to lead by example. What are some things you can do to show your kids how to protect their skin from painful sunburns?

Sunscreen

A sunscreen with an SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, of at least 30 is important. Sunscreen filters the sun’s harmful rays, causing less of it to injure the skin.

Teach your kids how to apply it, and do it at least 15 to 20 minutes before sun exposure. Teach them the importance of reapplying often, about every two hours, and especially after a dip in the water. Help them to apply the sunscreen in areas of the body that are difficult to reach, and make sure they don’t forget places like the tips of the ears and the back of the neck.

Some kid sunscreens are scented. Let your child pick one out! Also, sunscreen sticks are fun for them to use as well.

Hats

Hats are always a smart buy for protecting the skin from the sun. A colorful, fun hat will be loved and desired by your child. Let your child choose the hat, but look for a hat with a brim all around to protect not only the scalp, but the ears, forehead, eyes and nose. Some hats have added fabric to protect the neck.

Kids Robes

When your child is done swimming in a pool, lake or ocean, give them a kids robe to wear. A comfy hooded kids robe, such as one made of velour out of 100% Turkish cotton, is a fun way to protect your child from the sun’s rays.

As you can tell, showing your kids that sun protection is important will teach them to protect their skin when they are older. Allow them to have fun under the sun, but be sure to keep them safe.

Kids Bathrobes

As we all know, children get dirty – often – but this is a problem that is rather easy to solve and that usually involves dunking them in the bath at least once a day! After bath-time is over and done with would, however, be the ideal time to wrap junior and the little miss up in their very own snug kids’ bathrobes.

Possibly the most popular type of kids’ robes available today are the hooded terry velour robes, which are perfect for both boys and girls. These robes, which come in two colors – pink and white – will fit all children from the tiniest tyke of three to the eleven year old who has just had his latest growth spurt. This is not a “one size fits all” situation, though, and the small and medium robes (“S/M”) are specifically designed for the three through six age-group, while the large and extra-large (“L/XL”) ones are tailored for the seven through eleven year olds.

Hooded terry velour kids’ robes are known for being extra soft and extra absorbent – possibly because kids are usually extra active and extra dirty – and they are also known as being extremely comfortable to wear, not to mention extremely durable. Terry velour children’s robes are made from Turkish cotton of the highest quality, and, despite the fact that they are actually manufactured on sight in Turkish factories, they are incredibly reasonably priced, and buying one or two or more of these robes will never break – or even unduly strain – the budget.

Due to the growing popularity of monogrammed towels and monogrammed adults’ bath robes, parents should be happy to learn that they also now have the option to have monograms embroidered on their children’s bath robes. Monograms are available in a large selection of styles and colors – with the latter including such exotic hues as Bright Mint, Lake Blue, Lavender and Cranberry – and kids will love to see their initials appearing on their personalized bath robe in some bright and shiny color. Bath robe monogramming is usually also a service that is offered for free, which makes personalizing a robe or two all the more attractive.

Towels, bath mats and bath robes – for both adults and kids – are all must-have bathroom accessories, and buying them can be fun and exciting, especially when the price is just so right!

Luxurious oil-rubbed bronze bath fixtures and spa accessories are very popular consumer products this season. This type of bronze finishing is chemically enhanced to simulate the naturally aged-bronze patinas that are found on items in antique stores and museums. The shapes of these metal products are new and modern in appearance; however, the luxury finishing treatments that are applied on top of the metals can make them appear to be old.

Are the oil-rubbed bronze bathroom fixtures a good value?

The appearance of traditional bronze bars for towels or hooks for robes includes a shiny finish. As bronze ages, the shine deteriorates into a non-glossy darkened surface patina that still includes a shimmering hint of the base-metal colors underneath. New oil-rubbed bronze metals display elegant Turkish bathrobes / towels, common cotton bath towels and all other styles of consumer or industrial linens with excellent stunning visual results.

The best way to describe rubbed-bronze finishes is through a comparison to the luscious variety of browns that are found in chocolate bars. The soft chocolaty surface layer on the oil-rubbed bronze fixtures is often gently illuminated by using copper or a copper-like metal during the manufacturing processes. Consumers everywhere are thrilled with their new shimmering bars for hand towels, hooks for kids’ robes and other types of fixtures.

Value: Interior design experts are always searching for appropriate metal parts and fixtures that are long-life products with an ability to remain fashionable throughout the constantly changing trends in consumer products. Oil-rubbed bronze fixtures will stay fashionable for a long time while they display eco-friendly Egyptian towels, monogrammed towels or waffle bathrobe sets and all manner of terry bathroom products. The new sturdy oil-rubbed bronze bathroom fixtures and accessories are fashionable long-life products.

January is recognized as, ‘National Bath Safety Month’ in America, and observed globally by other regions on the planet. Wherever people, slippery soaps, and water merge, there can be unexpected slip or fall accidents happen. To guard against these bath-time mishaps, many people plan ahead before they start their cleaning processes.

Safety tips:

  • Towels, bathrobes, and bathmats should be placed into an area of the bathroom where they can be reached easily from inside or outside of the tub. Bath towels, robes, and thick luxury mats within arms reach can be used to keep a person warm if they cannot get up after falling.
  • Always place a soft cotton towel or terry hand towels under a cell phone that is resting on a bathroom counter. If a fall occurs after a bath, the edge of the towel can be tugged easily from the floor to aide in reaching the phone.
  • For children, your eco-friendly kid’s robes, organic Egyptian cotton towels, and luxurious tubmat collection can be stored in a sturdy basket. During bath-time, this heavy basket can rest on top of the toilet lid to deter small children from playing in that unsafe water.

Bathroom safety goes beyond the preventative steps that we take to avoid injuries and falls. In some homes, kimono robes, waffle bathrobes, and Turkish bathrobes/towels are used to prevent bathers from getting sick after they step out of the bathtub. Monogram spa robes and terry-style bathrobes are popular germ-fighting accessories in homes, at the gym, and in motels or resorts everywhere.

bath towels

The relationship between people and bath towels is something that has developed over many thousands of years, and possibly the first noteworthy use of the bath towel was when Noah packed at least a hundred of them into his ark and took to the waters with his doves looking for a drier climate.

Noah wasn’t the only biblical figure to place great value on towels, and they also came in handy for the wedding guests and disciples when the water was turned into wine as there was apparently a great deal of spillage. It is, however, fairly certain that Noah and his ilk didn’t have access to quite the abundance of luxury, quality bath and hand towels that are available to us ark-less people today not to mention the soft and luxurious kimono bathrobes, the many-colored eco friendly bath mats and the plush Egyptian cotton kids robes.

It is also a little known – but perfectly true – fact that Queen Cleopatra did not wrap herself up in a carpet when delivering herself to Caesar but that she chose, instead, to wrap herself in a sparkling white waffle bathrobe, complete with monogram and layered with several organic cotton bath towels. Towels of considerable historical significance next surfaced during the Boston Tea Party where they were used to mop up the excess sea-water after the tasteless tea bags had been upended into the harbor by Samuel Adams and his band of merry helpers.

Last but not least must be the tantalizing tale of the terry Turkish bathrobes / towels and how they figured in the creation of the world’s ultimate social network: Facebook. It is a well known fact that, while Mark Zuckerberg walked the corridors of Harvard and worked out the kinks on his worrisome website, he wore nothing but Turkish cotton terry kimono bath robes and snuggled up only to sandstone, coffee and aloe-colored bamboo rayon / Egyptian cotton bathtowels.

Given man’s past association with quality bath towels – not to mention a tubmat or two in the spa – there is literally no telling where this relationship will go next.

I have always been fascinated by colors and am totally in my element whenever I’m in a paint or crafts shop where hundreds of hues are displayed for my enjoyment. It wasn’t, however, until I started shopping for luxury towels and bathrobes that I realized I could provide a fix for my color addiction in my very own bathroom.

Quality bath towels and hand towels were on top of my list of must-buys, and I was simply stunned at the number of colors that towels are available in today. Egyptian cotton towels, for instance, come in no less than eight different colors ranging from the fairly predictable white and cream to the excitingly new espresso, meadow, rosebud and air blue. Supima towels, on the other hand, which are made of American Superior Pima cotton, come in such intriguing shades as bisque, merlot and tarragon while organic towels – 100% eco friendly – come in, among other colors, green tea, Aegean blue, coffee and stone. Bath mats were next on the list, and, when I looked at the luxurious Bamboo bath mats, I had a hard time choosing between the mat in adorable aloe, the tubmat in calming cloud and the bath mat in soft sandstone.

The world of bath robes also opened up a world of colors for me, and I was totally in my element exploring the different robe brands and their cleverly creative colors. The Terry kimono robes, for instance, came in sparkling white while the Waffle bathrobe was available in a beautiful shade of beige. The Ultra Soft cotton / bamboo bathrobes, on the other hand, dazzle the eye in coffee and the interesting shade of light blue that’s known as rain, and kids robes – possibly the most fun of them all – are pretty in pink and wonderful in white.

The fact that most of these Turkish bathrobes/towels and pure cotton bath mats are machine washable, of excellent quality and can even sport a monogram will – strangely – always be less important to me than the fact that they come in such gorgeous colors.

Robe

As an actress, I often have to appear on set in exotic and, sometimes, fragile, costumes, and I have found the ideal way to keep warm or to protect my outfit is to wear a luxury bathrobe over my costume.

After some experimentation, I discovered that luxury bathrobes – especially Waffle bathrobes – are the perfect on-set accessory and are extremely easy to slip on or off between takes, and speed is important when shooting feature films where each minute that is wasted costs thousands of dollars. Waffle robes are also very light, and, as such, I have noticed that they tend not to put too much pressure on, for instance, fancy evening dresses or prosthetic suits. I was recently on location in Palmdale, California – dressed in a dark blue formal dress – waiting for several scenes to be shot in this arid and very dusty semi-desert, and, if it wasn’t for the bathrobes that were on hand to slip on over my costume, the beautiful dress would have been ruined.

Both women’s bathrobes and men’s bathrobes are available – so the actors among us don’t have to feel left out! – and it is also my experience that Bamboo bathrobes are highly recommended on-set wear as they feature a shawl collar that is especially useful for protecting a costume from makeup. There are also kids’ robes available, and these would be perfect for pint-sized child actors. As every little girl and boy I know tends to dirty their clothes the second they put them on, bath robes being available for kids to wear on set and between takes seems like an inspired idea. Terry bathrobes are also a viable option to wear while shooting – perhaps while waiting for set-ups to be completed – and these comfortable unisex Turkish cotton robes come in kimono, velour and shawl styles.

Soft bathrobes are, of course, not worn exclusively by actors and are, in fact, highly recommended for people in all walks of life. They come in different colors, can sport personalized monograms and are, simply, the epitome of stylish living.
