It’s summer. That means time to kick back and have fun with the family.
Our favorite summer activities usually involve a good splash of water, whether pooltime, dashing through lawn sprinklers, slip-n-slides, and everything involving getting soaked to the core. With water games comes drying off >>towels. If you’re looking for an easy way to save money on water bills associated with laundering load after load of grass-stained clothes and swimming towels, let me tip you off:
Use hand towels to dry off.
I first discovered hand towels as great alternatives to large bath towels for drying off after I began toting a bag of toiletries, post-workout clothes, and of course, a towel to the gym every day. The smaller the towel, the less space it takes up in a gym bag. I tried swapping out the towel once and was hooked.
Even with long hair a quality hand towel does the trick for drying off both my body and hair post-shower.
You can even keep it turban-wrapped atop your head just like a bath towel, using my nifty hair towel trick.
- Your laundry line will thank you for freeing up space.
- Your water bills will be lower.
- You will have more space in the wash for other clothes, not to mention waaay less laundry.
- Your linen closet looks more polished with fewer awkward bath towel stacks threatening to topple over. Just keep a few full-sized towels around the house for once-in-a-while use, guest towels, and if you have a “real” man aka gentleman covered in macho sexy body hair around. Those types just don’t do hand towels. Ask my husband.
Happy summer water play!
