Turkish Towels – Peshtemal!


In my effort to become more of a minimalist and a better steward on this earth, I’ve switched to Turkish towels.

My big fluffy white towels take two full loads of laundry each week and two cycles in the dryer. Ridiculous.

I let everyone in my family pick out the color/design of towel they wanted and so far we are loving them.

I did read that they become softer upon washing, so I washed them first.

They are not fluffy, but they are absorbent and dry extremely quickly.

Here is what three of the four look like hanging on the back of our bathroom door.
