Waffles, the sweet and crispy dough-based snacks that are sold throughout the world, are known and loved by just about everyone. All waffles, whether from America, Belgium or Hong Kong, are made by frying dough in a patterned steel grid, and waffle bathrobes are so called due to their fabric’s resemblance to the waffle-grid shape.

It is, however, the fabric’s extremely unusual square-patterned weave that gives it it’s “waffle” label and that makes the robes so very soft yet durable as well as so comfortable yet highly absorbent. Kimono robes are, furthermore, usually double stitched to give them that extra bit of strength, while spa robes are ultra-lightweight and plain waffle robes are known for the speed at which they dry.

Waffles are versatile and can be enjoyed with cream, syrup, fruit, cheese, peanut butter or simply with dusted sugar. Waffle robes are similarly versatile and can be used at home, at the spa or at the gym, and, as they don’t take up a lot of space, they can easily be packed into a suitcase and taken on vacation. Waffle bathrobes also come in a variety of styles, colors and sizes, and, as with monogrammed towels, Waffle robe owners can have their initials embroidered on the latest addition to their bathwear wardrobe in a number of hues and alphabet and letter styles.

Consumers in the market for buying Waffle robes should, while they’re in the mood, also pick up some matching towels and maybe even some bath mats. All three styles of Waffle bathrobe are, furthermore, unisex, and they’re also all machine-washable. They can therefore be enjoyed by the whole family, and, with their discounted prices, free monogramming and free gift-wrapping, they also make first rate gifts.

Whether they’re served with bacon, kiwifruit, chicken, or good old maple syrup, waffles are loved by all, as are the plush and beautiful Waffle bath and spa robes.

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.

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.
