How many times a day do you need to use towels? Do you realise how many kinds of towels you use? Obviously, not many of us feel the importance of towels in our lives, but we sure realise that if suddenly it goes missing, you will miss it desperately. Do you remember the one time you forgot to take your towel before going for a bath, and then stood helplessly after the shower? Exactly how we will feel on a daily basis if we’re denied a towel.
Most of us use two kinds of towels- bath towels and hand towels. Both of them should have good absorption and should feel good on the skin, and obviously fit your budget. Let us make it easier for you to choose your towel wisely!
What is Bamboo fiber towel?
Bamboo fiber has been used to make textile for a long time. In recent times, it has become quite popular for being sustainable, eco-friendly, is naturally antibacterial, UV protective, breathable & cool, strong, flexible, soft and has a luxurious shiny appearance. It is also mostly ethically produced. Bamboo fabric may be used in sheets, blankets, towels, hand towels, or a number of other household textiles. Due to its durability and flexibility, it serves multiple purposes.
Livpure has come up with its range of Bamboo fiber towel keeping in mind its many advantages.
Bathrooms are left steamy and hot after a shower, and with your towel already being wet and left to dry in this environment, it might be the best place for mould and mildew to grow. Which in turn will have many bacterias, microbes and fungus to grow. Now that leaves you feeling yucky right?
One of the best things about bamboo towels is that while they will absorb a lot of water, you don’t have to worry about mould and mildew growing on them. Why? Because bamboo is naturally antimicrobial. Microbes are tiny microorganisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-static. Bamboo has a unique anti-bacterial and Bacteriostasis bio-agent named “Bamboo Kun” which bonds tightly with bamboo cellulose molecules during the normal process of bamboo fiber growth. This feature gets retained in bamboo fabrics too.
Towels need high absorptions after a bath or after a workout to dry off your sweat. Bamboo fiber absorbs and evaporates sweat and water very quickly. Its ultimate breathing ability of the bamboo fiber which keeps the wearer comfortable and dry for a very long period. It is 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton or Turkish towels.
To understand the absorbency power of the bamboo towel against cotton or Turkish towel, fill a tub or bucket with water. Throw your towels in one by one and note down the time it takes for it to get submerged in water. You will notice bamboo fiber towels taking at least 4 times less time than others. That proves that it has much higher absorbency power.
Bamboo fiber has a feel softer than silk when it is spun into yarn. It has a basic round surface, which makes it very smooth, and to sit perfectly next to the skin. It’s having very good lustre (shine) and also a very good soft feel. Livpure’s towel set made of bamboo fiber gives an ultra-luxurious feel and doesn’t pinch your pocket hard.
Bamboo is naturally cool and hence cool to the touch. Fabrics made from bamboo are highly breathable in hot weather and also keep the wearer warmer in the cold season.

It is also very warm in cold weather, because of the same micro-structure as the warm air gets trapped next to the skin.

Towels made from textiles with shorter fibers attract little balls of lint to them. When you throw them in the washing machine, the lint comes off with some of the fibers. Towels with longer fibers, like bamboo, are less likely to shed. Cotton is more likely to shed while washing. Hand washing also attracts lint and an immense amount of shedding, and it increases with the age of the towel as well.

It is best to wash all your towels separately. Get all your hand and bath towels and wash them. Use a mild detergent to clean it along with lukewarm water. Avoid using harsh detergents and chlorine-based products. You can also use fabric softener from time to time. Make sure you dry out the towels properly after washing them.
If you get a stain on a bamboo towel, try a chlorine-free stain remover on the spot. If you really want to take your towel care to the next level, air dry them almost all the way and throw them in the machine for the last 10 minutes. Rumour has it, you’ll get serious softness and fluff!
