It seems that many people are looking for ways to become more green friendly. Not only does it seem to be beneficial for the environment, but it also seems to be very beneficial for your health as well. What about when it comes to your bath towels? Does it really make a difference which one you choose to buy?
There are definitely plenty of benefits when it comes to buying organic bath towels. The best plus is that the organic towels seem to be a lot softer. They also seem to stay that way for a longer period of time, when compared with regular bath towels.
Usually after a few washes with regular bath towels you will have to use fabric softener in order to restore their soft fluffiness. With pure organic towels you will find that the fabric softener may not be necessary until at least wash number ten. At least that has been the case in my experience. Organic bath towels can either be made of cotton or a bamboo blend. So prior to shopping for your organic towels you will want to do a bit of research on the different organic varieties to see which one would be best for your family.
Also what many don’t realize is that cotton is grown using chemicals. These chemicals stay on the cotton as they are processed, and get passed down to the materials as well. Many of the chemicals used on cotton like pesticides can even make you sick with several different diseases.
This is not to say that there are no benefits to buying regular bath towels made out of cotton. The first thing that you will probably notice when going to look at organic bath towels is the price. The price for organic bath towels seem to be a bit more expensive than buying regular cotton towels. Also not all organic towels are bad. It really depends on how they are made and the entire process that can make them bad and cause people harm. Yet another plus to buying organic towels is that they are hypoallergenic which means that they are great for those who have allergies.
So the bottom line is that the organic bath towels are clearly a lot healthier than the regular bath towels. You need to deicide which is the better option for you. If your budget does not allow you to buy organic towels than you may want to consider saving up for it
