Towels are an indispensable part of our daily lives, from drying off after a shower, to cleaning up kitchen messes, to laying out for a beach day. Yet, not all towels are created equal. Towels come in a variety of sizes, each designed for a specific purpose. Understanding these differences will help you choose the right towel for every occasion. In this guide, we'll break down the various towel sizes and their intended uses.

Face Cloth 30 x 30cm 

Face cloths, also known as washcloths, are the smallest type of towel. Measuring roughly 30 x 30 centimeters, these compact squares are perfect for washing your face or body in the bath or shower. They’re also handy for removing makeup or for a quick freshen-up throughout the day.

Guest Towel 30 x 50cm

Guest towels are slightly larger than face cloths and are typically used in guest bathrooms. These towels offer a touch of comfort for your visitors, allowing them to dry their hands and face comfortably. They are usually placed next to the sink for easy access.

Hand Towel 50 x 90cm

Hand towels are a staple in every bathroom. Measuring around 50 x 90cm, these towels are ideal for drying hands after washing. They are typically hung on a towel rack or bar near the sink for convenience.

Bath Towel 70 x 130cm

Bath towels are what most people think of when they hear the word 'towel'. These large towels, measuring around 70x130cm, are perfect for drying off after a bath or shower. They are large enough to wrap around most adults comfortably, providing warmth and absorbency.

Bath Sheet 100 x 170cm

Bath sheets are the largest towels available. They typically measure around 100 x 170cm, offering even more coverage and absorbency than a standard bath towel. If you prefer to be fully wrapped in a towel after a bath or shower, a bath sheet is the way to go.

Beach Towel: 90cm x 180cm to 100cm x 200cm

Beach towels are the largest of all towel sizes, ranging from 90cm x 180cm to 100cm x 200cm. They are designed for lounging at the beach or pool, offering ample space for you to lay down and enjoy the sun. Beach towels are also typically more vibrant and patterned compared to other towels.
