The difference between hand towels and guest towels

Similar to bath sheets and bath towels, the main difference between hand towels and guest towels is their size. Hand towels measure around 85 centimetres by 50 centimetres, while guest towels are a slightly smaller version of the traditional hand towel, measuring 50 centimetres by 30 centimetres.

When it comes to their use, hand towels are most frequently used to dry hands after washing, which means you're most likely to find them in utility rooms - like bathrooms, kitchens and laundries - where you're frequently washing and drying your hands after dirty or messy tasks.

Because of their smaller size, guest towels are ideal for powder rooms or a second/guest bathroom where they may not be getting used as much as other hand towels. This also means they will last longer than the average hand towel and be in pristine condition, so you're always treating your guests to a gold standard experience when they visit your powder room.

Make sure your hand towels and guest towels are within easy reach of the hand basin to ensure your baths sheets and bath towels are kept clean and dry for when you really need them - there's nothing worse than grabbing a towel that smells like an onion from someone drying their hands after dinner preparation!

Using fabric hand and guest towels are also better for our environment compared to throwing away bin-loads of soiled paper towels that can't be recycled.

Replacing your hand towels

You should consider replacing your bath linen every two years. When towels are too old, they don't dry thoroughly and they can also become home to unseen germs and bacteria, which defeats their purpose.

As a rule of thumb, if they don't wash well and have a damp smell even when dry, they need replacing.
