Whether you’re looking for holiday or birthday gift ideas or ‘just because’ presents to show your appreciation, personalised beach towels are an excellent choice for those who love wading in the waters at a summer getaway. After all, who wouldn’t want to spend time at a beach with pristine white sand on their feet while enjoying the calming sounds of the waves and the cold, refreshing turquoise-coloured sea? At least while they’re basking in the sun, your thoughtful gift will remind them of you.
If you’re looking for personalised beach towels for you or your loved ones, visit Hardtofind and choose from our collection of custom beach towels.
When looking for hooded beach towels, there are universal guidelines that you must keep in mind. First and foremost, they are different from bath towels, which are generally smaller but thicker and fluffier. For this reason, they are too bulky and heavy for your beach trip.
By contrast, beach towels are bigger but much thinner because their main purpose is to keep the hot sand off your body while you’re sunbathing at the beach. Additionally, they are often made of fibres that dry faster than those used in a regular bath towel. At Hardtofind, you can find personalised beach towels made of super-absorbent, quick-dry fabric so you’re never left hugging a soaked cloth. These towels are also sand-repellent so that you won’t make a mess back in the beach house or hotel.
Another thing to keep in mind is versatility. It’s best to go with towels that can be used not just for the beach; maybe your giftee likes to go to the gym a lot, or they’re fond of travelling – then you’d need to look for something thin enough to roll up into a gym or travel bag easily. At Hardtofind, our assortment of personalised beach towels even allows you to find something lightweight enough to wear as a sarong, a baby wrap, or even as a makeshift tablecloth if the need arises.
And lastly, the best personalised beach towels are soft (but not too fluffy and cumbersome) and provide enough comfort. While buying low-quality fabrics may feel good in your pocket, they are generally uncomfortable for lying and sitting on because they don’t offer enough protection against the hot sand. At Hardtofind, each product has been carefully selected to give you a pleasant beach and sunbathing experience.
Compared to bath towels, hooded beach towels take more of a beating because they are exposed to sweat, sand, sun, sunscreen, and the occasional spilt beach cocktail. That being said, they have different care instructions.
Shake off the sand and dry them in the sun. As much as possible, fully dry your beach towel in the sun before packing it up to kill any bacteria and germs.
Shake again. Once dry, vigorously shake your towel again to remove the sand and dirt. Take note that too much sand can damage your washing machine over time.
Remove sunscreen. If you’re still at the beach and you notice that your towels have sunscreen stains, make sure that you rub sand against the spots to soak up the oil in the cream. You should also add a water softener (or use water that undergoes a filtration system that removes hard water minerals like calcium and magnesium) to the load to remove the rust-like stain caused by sunscreens.
Wash in a cold setting. Cold water keeps the colour brighter and longer and prevents shrinkage.
Follow some simple hacks. Avoid fabric softener and go light on laundry detergent when washing personalised beach towels because they leave behind waxy residues and make them less soft and absorbent.
Another way to make your hooded beach towels last you many seasons is to only wash them about every third use. Of course, you ought to clean them when they appear or smell dirty.
Once your personalised beach towels are washed and clean of all stains, you can tumble-dry them for maximum fluffiness. Just make sure that you choose your dryer’s moisture sensing cycle to avoid damaging and over-drying them. Another option is to use the low tumble setting, which takes a bit longer than other settings but is considered to be the most gentle.
You can also hang beach towels on a clothesline to dry right after they’ve been washed. However, some people prefer to ‘air fluff’ them before hanging them to dry completely.
Air fluff is a dryer setting in which it only shifts them around the drum to remove water (no heat is used in the process). For this reason, this is considered to be a gentle way to dry delicate fabrics.
