A common question that one might ask themselves, "Is there bacteria on towels." The short answer is yes, and I'm sure that you cringed at that thought, just as I did. It's actually really gross if you think about it, and it makes me want to go out and buy all new towels for my home. This is a partnered post, though all opinions are my own.
The thought of using bacteria filled towels is actually pretty disgusting, and it's something that I had never thought about until now. But now that I do know, it's definitely time to take action, and today I am sharing all about Mizu Towel, a towel that changes color when it detects bacteria. I will be making the switch, so that I will never have to guess again. Here's a video sharing all about the Mizu Towel.
Of course, like me, you probably want your towels to be large, soft and cozy, and Mizu took that into account when they made their bacteria detecting smart towel. Mizu is made using Xinjiang cotton, which is constructed using Japanese techniques from Imabari, and is the softest cotton on Earth. Size matters to Mizu, so they made their towel 50% larger that the average towel on the market, and this helps to make it more absorbent too.
I found that there are many common questions when it comes to bacteria on towels, so I have taken the liberty to answer a few of them for you below.
Does bacteria grow on wet towels?
Microbal growth such as bacteria, mold and yeast grow on damp towels, as they are the perfect breeding environment for these nasty microbes.
Does washing towels kill bacteria?
The answer to this question isn't just a simple yes or no. If you are relying on your laundry detergent to rid your towels of dirt, germs and bacteria, that is simply not enough. Only bleach or very hot water will actually kill the bacteria on your clothing and towels.
The Mizu Towel can really help eliminate these microscopic invaders, through their use of smart fabrics that help to resist contamination and remind you when it is time to wash.
