How long does it take for your towels to be completely dry? It obviously depends on where you live and how you dry your towels. Those living in tropical climates will have their towels dried much sooner than those living up north. Also, those who opt for outdoor drying will get the benefit of the sun’s heat which is ideal for a natural drying and the ultraviolet rays of the sun that is good for cleaning or disinfecting the towel.

Do you know wet towels promote the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms? On top of that, bathroom towels are placed under dark conditions that provide the perfect atmosphere for disease-causing bacteria such as Escherichia coli or Salmonella to grow. Just take a look at the 2003 case of MSRA infection breakout from sharing towels by a college football team in Los Angeles. Also, dirty and wet towels are especially dangerous for young kids at home. 

So what can we do? Well, the solution lies in installing a UV Towel Dryer Hanger at your home. Thanko’s UV Towel Dryer is the only commercially available UV hanger for towels. This UV Towel Dryer is equipped with a “towel rack”, “blast drying” and “UV light”.

Blast drying and UV irradiation are performed from the ring surrounding the towels. The remote control is used to turn the power on/off. It also has an auto-off function, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn it off when you are not using it for a long time.

4 – Dry and Clean: a Concept Towel Dryer by Puredesign (Not for sale)

For clean, dry and fluffy towels, you should consider using devices like Dry & Clean. Developed by PureDesign, Dry & Clean looks like a hanger of sorts but it is loaded with a turbine. The mini turbine is capable of pumping out hot air and it also uses ultraviolet light which disinfects the towel. In effect, your towels would dry up sooner than you think, they would be clean and disinfected and they will smell good. Have you ever smelled your towel and got a stinky odor? Have you ever felt the bristles of the fabric when they get stiff? All this happens because of improper drying and cleaning of towels.

With Dry & Clean, your towels will be safe, fresh, dry and they would feel nice as well. Who doesn’t want fresh towels that smell nice and get dry quickly or remain dry whenever one has to use them? With the physical appearance, attributes, the intended purpose and the efficacy with which Dry & Clean attends to drying and cleaning your towels, there shouldn’t be any ambiguity as to whether you need it or not. Of course, durability and price will be a concern and any person will make an informed choice. But from the perspective of utility, Dry & Clean makes ample sense and is certainly a promising product.
