My daughter is a student in Brooklyn and will enthusiastically vouch for the positives of having a goodlinens towel in her life. She used the same towel for the better part of a year without requesting a second one. When she finally requested a second, it was because her guests kept trying to use hers.
Why only a towel or two? Linen dries quickly, avoiding the bacteria build-up that can cause smelliness. Hang the towel after using, and it will stay fresh for use after use. Toss it in the wash when it’s time to do laundry, and it washes and dries alongside the rest of the clothes – no need for extra quarters for the dryer.
The towel retains its looks, too. Inherently dirt-resistant linen yarns in their naturally occurring colors won’t show dirt like other towels.
Purchasing two towels? The second takes up little space.
