Women's magazines have made it easier to learn the many different items available for the household. These magazines also make it look easy to have a picture perfect room since their picture is perfect thanks to a stylist, a steamer, a seamstress and great photography. Now we look at towels and how there are as many different types as there are ice cream flavors. Bath towels, hand towels, embroidered towels, thread counts- they all come into play. Check out how much Wisegeek.com describes just two towel types: "Some may consider bath towels to be an afterthought, but a full set in an appropriate color scheme gives the bathroom a coordinated and inviting appearance for visitors. While many of us might get away with using one or two mismatched bath towels and a wash cloth, there is actually a specific function for each type of towel available."
The smallest form of bath towels are called washcloths. These small squares of terrycloth (a textured cotton blend) are meant to assist bathers with lathering and gentle scrubbing. Because the use of washcloths can be so intimate, many hosts will keep a generous supply on hand to insure individual usage. Washcloths are generally sold in bulk at a nominal cost.
The next largest form of bath towels are called hand towels and are used primarily near the bathroom sink. Hand towels feature many of the design elements of larger bath towels, so they should be coordinated. A small hanger or loop may be used to position the hand towels near the sink. Guests should use them primarily for drying their clean hands and faces, not as a larger substitute for a washcloth. Hosts often readjust hand towels on the hanger for a balanced look between uses.
Personally I switched to purchasing white towels because I could bleach them easily and not care so much if they matched perfectly or not. I've got girlfriends who lives for matching towels and sheets. Me, not so much. I'm more of a kitchen gal. Bring on the potholders!
