• What Do Your Towels Say About Your Business?

    by Lifeboat Admin ,

    When you first walk into an office, be it yours or a visit or meeting elsewhere, what’s the first thing you notice? Is it the hordes of worker bees, slaving away at their desks? That might allude to the hardworking nature of the staff. Is it the hustle and bustle of everyone milling about, producing consistent results? Still a positive. Or is it the aesthetic and how that makes you feel when you walk in? The sights and colors, the furniture and small touches that make the environment inviting to you. If you guessed C, you guessed correctly.


    It may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but studies have shown that the décor of your office and meeting spaces, says a lot about your business. It shows that extra care has been put into the space, and that an inviting environment is a priority. Well-decorated offices encourage applicants of higher calibers because they want to work in an environment that is pleasing to look at. Gyms and spa’s with a specific look and feel draw more clientele because working out or relaxing in well-decorated spaces encourages them to maximize on that time.


    Décor is a broad term. This can cover everything from paint color, to rugs and upholsteries, to…you guessed it- towels. Companies underestimate what their employees and visitors will notice and this surprisingly tops the list. Whether it’s the towels in the bathroom, the locker room or the kitchen, make sure that you make conscientious decisions when picking yours out.


    First step, have them. Paper towels aren’t good for the environment, they’re wasteful and they become expensive over time. Some companies shy away because all they can think about is the time and energy it will take to wash the towels. Don’t see this as a waste of time, see it as an investment of time. The return is much higher than you may anticipate. Choosing a cost effective, premium hand towel option like Alluretex’s Elite Large Hand Towel costs approximately the same amount as one package of paper towels. In a high traffic office, a pack of paper towels may last a week tops. You do the math…


    Next step, take care of them. In a high traffic business or establishment, your towels should be washed at least once a week. If you own or work at a spa or gym, towels should be washed daily. We’ve discussed proper washing and drying protocols for these towels. Don’t be scared to over wash your towels, just make sure that you’re using the proper methods and products. That means avoiding fabric softeners and washing your towels with warm water and vinegar to avoid mold and negative smells. Much easier than you thought!


    Finally, have some fun and choose towels that you can get excited about! They’re not just utilitarian, if you take anything away from this post, it’s that towels are useful, but they’re also a contributing part of your aesthetic. Make your business a place that you can be proud to look around at.
