towels

Winter is just around the corner – in some parts of the country it’s already arrived – and that means two important things: it’s hard to get out of that nice, warm, cozy bed, and it’s also hard to finish that nice, hot shower and face the chilling blast of cold air when you open the shower door.

One trick you can use to mitigate the pain of stepping out of the shower is to use a heated towel rack. Place your towel and/or your bathrobe on the heated towel rack, and turn it on before you step into the shower. By the time your shower is done, your towel and your bathrobe will already be toasty.

On the high-end of heated towel racks, some devices have as many as 10 bars, so both your towel and your bathrobe have enough contact with the towel rack to make it plenty warm for you. Other devices are a little less expensive, but have fewer rails for your towel and bathrobe.

With a heated towel rack, you can change your attitude towards ending your hot shower in the dead of the winter. Instead of stepping out of the shower only to be greeted by goose bumps and chattering teeth, you’ll step into a warm towel and a warm bathrobe.

Bath time for children always seems like an event. There’s the warm water, special tub toys, and lots of exciting bubbles. However, when the bubbles are gone and the bath toys are finished being played with, there’s something wonderful about wrapping up your child in a soft, bath towel. Like icing on a cake, the warm embrace of a cotton towel finishes the bath time experience with a peaceful moment.

Creating that special time together after bath time is simple if you choose a colorful or playful bath towel. Children love bright colors or special designs that show off their fun-loving side. So, even though the bath part of this nightly ritual might be over, the cuddle time with their favorite bath towel really finishes off this family time in a unique way.

As you take the time to hold your child in a warm towel, realize that these are the moments that you’ll cherish as they get older. So even if your child wriggles a bit in your hands as you dry him or her off, that towel time together is actually a precious memory in the making.
