There is no doubt that the world is divided into those who prefer to use the towel after taking a shower and those who choose to use a bathrobe. But, why do we choose one or the other? While in countries with good, sunny weather people tend to use towels, in countries with colder, rainy or snowy weather the use of bathrobe is more common. Nevertheless, the truth is that there is no rational reason why people prefer either of both options, they just do.
Let’s start with towels. Once we get out of the shower or bath we wrap up in our cozy, soft towel. We also have smaller ones to wrap up our hair to remove excess water before drying and to dry our feet avoiding getting all the bathroom covered in watery footprints.
On the other hand, those who prefer to wrap themselves in a bathrobe sometimes try to escape from the cold after taking a shower or a bath. Bathrobes tend to cover and keep warm more parts of your body that are left uncovered with towels. They are very popular in families with kids, as it is easier to put on a bathrobe on kids instead of a towel that will probably end up falling every second. It is a faster way to get them dry before putting their pyjamas on.
Bathrobes are also commonly associated to luxury homes and hotels. We tend to think of a 5-star hotel with a big bathroom, huge bathtub and soft spongy bathrobes hanging on the wall. Introducing this in the home can also be a way of pampering ourselves on a daily basis.
For both towels and bathrobes, it is important to maintain good hygiene and ensure you wash them regularly, ideally twice a week or when they smell damp. Adding Voyêtre Fabric Conditioner on your washes will ensure a soft and comfortable feeling both towels and bathrobes, leaving them smelling nice and fresh for longer.
