When we went to Greece in the summer we were really limited on space in our cases so I was worried about how we were going to fit 5 beach towels in the cases.
Getting fresh beach towels every day on holiday would tempt me to go on an all-inclusive more than the alcohol! I hate how they get so smelly so quickly. When you go self-catering abroad you often don’t have a washing machine or a nearby laundry so washing towels is difficult and they take a fair amount of time to dry even in the sun.
So I decided to invest in a few chamois towels. I had always used a small version in my swimming days at galas. We used it to dry off most of the water then we wouldn’t be sat round all day with a a wet towel. Steff also took one when he went travelling but I don’t know why I haven’t thought of investing in them for a family holiday sooner.
They came in a bag and fold up so flat and small. I can’t find this make anymore but there are plenty of others around.
They worked well as a cover over the kids whilst they were napping as they are thin so they didn’t get too hot.
We only got 3 for Greece but I will be buying two more so that we all have them for future holidays.
No more “wet dog” smelling towels for us!
