I first conceptualized the hierarchy of towels as a young child taking baths at my grandmother's house. Even as the favorite grandchild (don't burst my bubble, mmkay?) emerging from the tub sopping wet, I was FORBIDDEN from reaching for her perfectly hung, lace trimmed, pink coordinating towel set conveniently hanging on the towel rack adjacent to the tub. In her house, all bathing beauties were required to use the crunchy cabinet towels that still somehow smelled clean despite them being used and washed more years than we'd been alive.
Well folks, DNA dies hard. Despite my best efforts, I am JUST as crazy with linen placement and preservation as the women that came before me. Damn it. But I'm here to offer a solution to those who may be prone to anal tendencies like myself and finally rid your home of towel racks that make your bathroom linens an eyesore.
Why towel hooks are the shit and will save your sanity:
If your man (or kiddo) is anything like mine, it's a gold-star day if the towel makes it off the floor after a shower. Even the messiest DGAF towel user in the house will get pretty damn close to "the look" you're going for by just throwing that bitch on the hook. No folding, looping or pulling through a pesky narrow towel rack. Just hook and mic drop.
A girl likes options. Towel hooks are made in varying lengths or single individual mounts to accommodate your towel count needs. Whereas the standard towel rack only holds two bath towels; boo. No one should have to share butt germs!
If you want to get funky or creative, there are a wide array of interesting styles out there to sew those wild oats.
The only downer for those that live in more humid climates or have little ventilation in their bathrooms, towels will dry slower if they are hung on hooks super close together. A solution to this would be to purchase individual wall hooks so you're able to decide the distance between towels that works best for your bathroom's climate and air flow. No one likes spongy stank towels!
