The humble towel has found uses in many aspects of our day to day lives – from the bath sheets that we use to dry ourselves after a relaxing shower to tea towels that we use to cover hot dishes in the kitchen and everything in between; the towel has played a silent, yet crucial role, as an accessory of the household. The first towel dates back to Turkey – a place still famous for them – and since then, its utility has gained it widespread acceptance not just in households but in several businesses as well. Hotels, restaurants, salons, spas and bath houses have all used towels in one application or another. For example, hotels have provided bath towels to their customers in bedrooms as part of the service, while tea towels, have been placed on dining tables in both hotels and restaurants so that customers have an elegant way of cleaning their hands and wiping accidental stains from their clothes. Bath sheets have been a customary part of the service in bath houses and spas, as have been salon towels in beauty salons. These days, tea towels have become popular as makeshift gift wrappers that lend a touch of personality to the gift and also as general pieces of decor in kitchens and dining rooms. The nature of the uses of these towels have meant that they need to be regularly maintained since replacing them periodically isn’t possible at the retail prices they are usually bought at.
Therefore clearance towels have become widely popular among the consumers on a budget – these are towels that are sold at very low rates by dealers in order to make room for new stock.
Clearance sales on bath sheets and tea towels have provided consumers with a way to buy towels at extremely low rates and in quantities large enough to last them the whole season – until the next batch of clearance towels comes up. Households and businesses alike have made considerable savings, both direct and indirect, by shopping for towels in this way. These savings are more important for businesses since they can be spent on other aspects in order to improve their overall productivity; furthermore, these clearance towels are cheap enough to be bought in bulk, which has freed these businesses from the obligation of cleaning and conditioning them periodically – they can simply be replaced when they get worn out – this has eliminated another expense associated with towels bought at retail prices.
The best thing about these towels is that they are part of the same original stock, so their quality is no different from the rest. It goes without saying that clearance sales on bath sheets and tea towels have aided many consumers in this recessionary economy.
