Inbuilt cameras on smartphones. GPS navigation systems in cars. Micellar water makeup remover.
What do these three things have in common? They’re products that have made our lives substantially easier. Can’t-live-without-them kind of easy.
Now, I’ve got another to add to the list. It may be small and understated to the eye but it’s single-handedly revolutionised my summer beach experience. No exaggeration.
I’m talking about the humble Turkish towel. Yes, this is what my life has come to – a towel has changed me.
When I first took this product for a spin, I was skeptical. But one soft and trouble-free lie on the beach and I was pondering buying shares.
The thing about Turkish towels that makes regular ol’ towels the ugly stepsisters in this equation is the amount of space they take up.
Or rather, how little space they take up. Due to the lightweight, thin fabric, you can easily fold and roll these puppies into the size of a 600 ml bottle of water.
