What could be nicer than taking a long, hot shower after an extremely hectic day? And then wrapping yourself up in a fluffy soft towel feeling clean and refreshed. However, you might be snuggling up to millions and millions of bacteria. Yuck! At this point you should throw in the towel. Literally.
The unpleasant truth: Bacteria spread almost unchecked due to high levels of humidity, especially in the bathroom where we tend to our personal hygiene every day. Particularly affected are textiles, such as terry towels, shower curtains and bath mats. These items cannot dry out properly if there is insufficient ventilation or if they are not left to dry for long enough. As a result, mold and mildew begin to form along with foul smells, ugly stains and discolorations.
By frequently changing and washing textile products, you can help to reduce the formation of mildew. But if you want complete deep-down cleanliness and freshness for you and your home, the antimicrobial Sanitized® hygiene function makes all the difference. Items treated with this technology inhibit the growth and spread of bacteria and other microbes and are even more environmentally friendly since they can be washed at low temperatures and look like new longer. The Sanitized® hygiene function is even suitable for large-scale laundry, for example in the hotel industry. You can find out more here.
Throwing in the towel is not the solution, just make the right choice next time and look for the Sanitized® Quality Seal when you buy your next bath towels. Now throw the towel in your hamper and enjoy your shower!
