Are bathroom flannels necessary? Is it worth investing in a pack of these or should you just continue using the one that you moved out of your mom’s house with?
If not taken care of, washcloths turn out to be the best breeding sites for bacteria and fungus. As such, you need to keep them clean and hygienic at no matter what cost. Hygienically speaking, washcloths should be machine washed and dried after every 3-4 days.
This isn’t enough. You need to replace them after a few months especially if you heavily use them for exfoliation. Luckily, the market has them in bulk and at very pocket-friendly prices.
When you’re buying these bathroom accessories, one feature to consider is the cloth’s size. If you need a cloth for facial cleansing and hand washing, one measuring 12×12-inches is ideal. For bathing, a flannel measuring 14×14 and above is a good bet.
You need to consider the cloth’s absorbency too. This will make bathing or be cleaning easy and timeless. Moreover, for hygienic purposes, it should dry quickly. This reduces the risk of triggering microbial growth and bad odors.
Lastly, don’t be afraid to go for your favorite colors. On this point too, the colors should hold on even after numerous washing cycles.
Having said that, below is our list of 10 best washcloths for 2017
