comuting… towels ?
I shower at work each morning but you have to hang towels on tiny hooks on a small rail. Using cotton towels and they get a bit “damp smelly” after a day or two as they are not drying out properly. Any good sports towels out there ? Looking at the antibacterial travel towels could be good ?Posted 3 years ago
I have a similar problem so ended up taking a coat hanger into work and now just spread the damp towel out on the horizontal bar of the coat hanger. I also took a flannel in and use that to get myself 90% dry first…it’s smaller and less weight to cart a flannel back and forth…Posted 3 years ago
I use a small hand towel and change it regularly. I have a sports /and camping towel but not nice to use. Better to just change the towel regularly and hang out to dry as much as possible.Posted 3 years ago
I use a microfibre towel from decathlon. Drys really quickly and packs down small.Posted 3 years ago
Get a proper Packtowel from the Thermrest people.
Dear but very good. Way better than cheaper ones.
one of these should do…

Lifeventure SoftFibre towel is what I used at work.
Unfortunately it was stolen from the changing rooms by some scrote – I replaced it with a Lifeventure HydroFibre which is terrible – very thin and absorbs a lot of water, but it just feels like you’re drying with a cold damp towel. No need for that level of portability for commuting…Posted 3 years ago
The main thing is to take the towel home every week and wash it otherwise it develops that disgusting smell that is the hallmark of office changing rooms.Posted 3 years ago
Baby wipes are good as well for a brisk spruce up.
Lifeventure ones are good. Got mine in Halfords, great to stick in the rucksack when you need to take it home – they do need washing occasionally!Posted 3 years ago
Anyone remember pertex towels? Nothing faster at drying after use and packs down to nothing.Posted 3 years ago
Decathlon sport towel here which is pretty good as these things go. It’s huge too so if space is a premium you could cut it into 2 or even 3Posted 3 years ago
Decathlon soft microfibre towel. Prefer it to the shorter pile microfibre towels. Different sizes are available.
I tend to just go with cheap thin cotton towels and hang it up on a coat hanger to dry out properly.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve rigged up a cunning hanging rail under my desk which seems to get things dry quicker than hanging from a hook.Posted 3 years ago
In a previous office herself used to dry her stuff by laying it on top of a SGI Octane workstation. Not very helpful, but quite efficient apparently.Posted 3 years ago
