Be prepared for guests in the bathroom by changing the hand towels to fresh and clean ones before they arrive. Place the hand towels in an obvious place for the guests' use such as a Fingertip Towel Tree from InterDesign Axis. To make the bathroom more inviting for guests, the sink should be kept stocked with good hand soap, hand sanitizer, lotion and after meal mints.
For overnight guests, a care kit including a bath towel, hand towel, wash cloth, and maybe some small toiletries like shampoo, conditioner and lotion should be provided. Present the bed and bath items in a basket or tote sitting next to the guest bed. For children, consider adding a present that might comfort them during their stay such as a teddy bear, making sure that all the items are appropriate for their age.
When shopping for guest towels, pay attention to the fiber. Environmentally friendly fibers include organic cotton and anti-bacterial, mildew-resistant bamboo fiber. Luxury cotton like Egyptian cotton (the King of Cottons), Pima cotton (made in the United States from the same plant as Egyptian cotton), and Turkish cotton provide extra softness, absorbency, strength, and useful life. For a suede-like texture, MicroCotton is highly absorbent.
The overall feel of a towel can be thick and heavy or light and fluffy. The thick, heavy bath towels absorb the water quickly and are soft to the touch, making this a guest towel with a spa-like sensation. The light and fluffy towels take away water with gentle absorption and are light against the skin, perfect for wrapping hair without weighing down the neck.
Avanti's bathroom collections offer many designs for guest towels, from the southwest Mojave collection featuring Aztex medallions, to the English Rosefan embroidered with delicate flowers. Natural bathroom collections such as the Greenwood provide a simple, relaxed atmosphere. For a bold look, Lauren by Ralph Lauren designs feature a tapestry look with the Marrakesh Collection and a striking black and red portrayal of the Southwest with the Black Adobe Collection. Charter Club’s striped and blocked towels and Hotel Collection’s Textured Rib Collection provide a bigger bang than solid colors without interfering with existing patterns in the bathroom décor.
When caring for towels, washing towels before using them helps set in color and reduces lint. Avoid the use of fabric softeners, and occasionally add a cup of distilled white vinegar to the wash to freshen the towels.
