Oh, gym towels. Yeah, we know, it’s definitely not the most luxurious subject and probably the least of your worries, but have you ever wondered what causes your gym bag to reek? Well, it could be the heavy bath towel you’re lugging around.
While you’ve opted to use your own terrycloth towel from home rather than the ones handed out at the gym, damp materials like cotton can hold onto sweat and moisture which lock in odour-causing bacteria.
If you’re looking to retire your stinky gym towel now, we suggest looking for one with great moisture control, like the Bogi Microfiber Towels ($14).
These soft, lightweight towels are said to absorb moisture up to 10 times faster than your conventional towel. Made with 100 per cent plush-proof microfibres, they dry super quickly so you don’t ever have to worry about lingering scents or bacteria. Plus, they can also hold between seven to nine times their weight in moisture.
“This replaces my GYM towel. At first I was worried that it might be small or not dry well, it does feel different from an actual towel as of this being microfibres but for being small and light it really made it easy and convenient to use,” one reviewer said.
While another says: “I purchased this as a gift for my husband after getting one for myself. Great value. These are the best towels for gym bags. I find them super absorbent and very light weight. Going to get more for my children’s swim bags. No more bulky towels!! I also noticed that it doesn’t get a musty smell if not washed right away. I love these towels.”
Backed by 375 five-star reviews, these gym towels are ranked as Amazon’s No. 1 best-selling sports and camping tools.
