The 7 Best Quick-Dry Towels

Honestly, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about towels. I probably still have one hanging around that I stole from home when I left for college. Until recently, I didn't even know that quick-dry towels were a thing.

For instance, if I'm going to the beach, I usually just grab whatever towel that looks cute (or just clean) and head off. Oh, and I have definitely taken a bath towel to the sea. That's not a great choice.

If you can relate to my past indifference towards towels but are ready to join me on my journey to upgrade my linen closet, then check out some of these game-changing quick-dry towels.

Whether you're a hot yoga enthusiast, an outdoor basketball warrior, or a happy camper, quick-dry towels make it all so much easier. You don't have to worry about carrying home a rag soaked in stale sweat after the gym, these towels de-gross themselves very quickly. If you're camping at a lake, just hang the towels from your nearest tree and they'll dry out in no time.

Some of these towels are even laced with silver. Not because they're fancy (although they kind of are), but because silver kills germs. So, you'll get a clean, dry towel just moments after a 90 minute Bikram class. That's pretty much a miracle, and who doesn't want more miracles in their life?
