The Changing of the Towels

June 21, 2012

Our household is marking the arrival of summer by the changing of the towels; from terry to linen.

My plan is to wean my teenaged boys off their preferred “fluffy soft cotton terry towels” in favor of linen towels, which are longer lasting and have antibacterial properties. They also get softer with use, dry faster, and take up less space in the cupboard. A win-win as far as I am concerned.
