A few years back I started using all-cotton hand towels with an antibacterial coating. The coating would last 50 times of repeated laundering. They were good enough until a friend introduced me to towels made with bamboo fabric. Towels made with bamboo are more absorbent than cotton, naturally kill bacteria and are luxuriously soft. I bought the hand towel for 200 pesos. I use it to wipe both my hands and face after washing.
Bamboo towels are available at Chlorophyll Manila stalls at the Salcedo and Legazpi Markets held every Saturday and Sunday respectively. Larger towels and towel sets are also available.
