Towel Facts via Everplush Towel Company:
- the towel was first used in Turkey in the 1600s. These ones were cotten, silk, or linen. Only rich people owned them at first.
- in the 1800s towels started to be mass-produced by machines. That's when the price came down and more people could afford them.
- "The Cleaning Institute" says we should wash our towels after three uses. Also, let your towel dry out between use b/c wet towels are "germ magnets". Helloooo yeast, bacteria, mold, and viruses!
