Hand Towels FAQs

How often should I wash my hand towels?

If your hand towels are frequently used, wash them at least once a week - or more if there are a lot of hands in your household that need drying! Hand towels can host bacteria or even mould if not laundered regularly. Keep in mind that the most fastidious of hand-washing routines will not benefit if you're drying your hands on a dirty towel. If you're wondering how many hand towels you need, three per bathroom is a good rule to follow - one in use, one spare and one in the wash.

Where to put hand towels in your bathroom

If you don't already have one, a dedicated hand towel rail or hand towel hook is the way to go. If you don't want to drill into tiles (or you're renting), you can use towel rails or rings that secure to the wall with sturdy suction cups. Locate the hand towel rail close to the wash basin for vanity for convenient hand drying. If you have the luxury of a larger bathroom you can display your folded hand towels on a bamboo storage shelf or in a basket to create an elegant home spa aesthetic.

How to fold hand towels

A simple way to fold a hand towel for storage is in thirds, and then into thirds again as below:

  • Place the hand towel flat on a clean surface and spread the towel out horizontally. Smooth it out with your hands.
  • Fold one-third of the towel by bringing the top edge in towards the centre. Then take the bottom edge towards the centre and layer it over the other folded section to create a long skinny shape. Make sure all sides and edges line up neatly.
  • Fold the towel into thirds in the other direction if you need to store it in a small space like your linen cupboard or a bathroom vanity drawer.

Top tip #1: Stack your hand towels and face washers into your linen cupboard with the folded side facing out. This will keep them neat and make them easier to remove without accidentally unfolding the towel.

Top tip #2: A great alternative to folding hand towels is to roll them up. To roll a hand towel, first fold into thirds as above. Then simply roll up the short edge to form a neat bundle, which can then be stacked into a decorative basket.
