I’m not normally one to notice when things go on sale, but I saw this 6 piece Royal Heritage Egyptian towel set on Amazon the other day for a huge discount of $130 to $29. The ones shown are a steel blue color called “Bluestone”, but they also come in various colors including Cream, Terra-cotta and Pale Green. The set includes 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels and 2 washcloths.Continue reading "Royal Heritage Egyptian Towels"
Living in balmy Southern California, I haven’t seen the need for a towel rack warmer / dryer. Except maybe for those lcolder days in the winter. However, I do take a lot of baths and showers (sometimes more than once a day) and it might be nice to have a completely dry towel without having to get a new one from the closet.
Enter the Heatra Classic Towel Warmer and Drying Rack made by Warmrails. This interestingly designed “zig-zag” shaped rack can be used either on the wall or freestanding (there are attachable feet on bottom). I’ve seen a few other towel warmers (some also from Warmrails” that are “grid shaped” instead of “S-shaped”. This particular one seemed quite cheaper, though.Continue reading "Warmrails Heatra Towel Warmer"
I was on Bed Bath & Beyond admiring some of their shower hardware. How about this cool Curved Shower Rod from The Crescent Rod®? At first I was thinking it wouldn’t be of any use to me because I only have a standard …Continue reading "Crescent Shower Rod"
It always amazes me how many people today actually think that baths may actually be detrimental to your health. Apparently, this misconception has some early roots. The New York Evening Mail published a completely erroneous “history of the bath” in 1917 by the journalist HL Mencken. The article went on to state that after the bathtub was “invented” in 1842 in Cincinnati, the medical community came down hard on it stating it was the reason for a host of illneses.Continue reading "The Bathtubs Hoax of 1917"
Huh? What does this brick of volcanic rock have to do with baths? Well, pumice is often used to remove calluses and dry skin from the bottom of your feet in beauty salons and …Continue reading "Sephora Pumice Stone"
I think if you gave this as a gift to someone with all the labels removed, they might be pretty puzzled. It looks like a gigantic slice of blue toffee, …Continue reading "Blue Skies Bubble Bar Slice"

So incense might not be something you’d think of for the bath. But it might be an interesting thing to try for special occasions. I wouldn’t use it with a daily bath.
I actually don’t know too much about incense. I only chose to feature these Votivo Aromatic Burning Sticks in Vanilla Grapefruit because I’m familiar with the Votivo line of candles. But I figure you just light it and let the smell percolate through the bathroom, right?Continue reading "Votivo Aromatic Burning Sticks"
The thing about bathroom tile is that because of the humidity from taking a shower or bath, there’s a lot of humid moisture that sticks around. Inevitably, you’ll be dealing with all sorts of funky things like mold and mildew growing on the tile.
One of the best ways to deal with this is an after-shower type of cleaner. For example, this Tilex Fresh Scent Daily Shower Cleaner is pretty commonly used. The secret is that there IS no secret… pretty much all of these daily shower cleaners work the same way. You just spray or mist it onto the surfaces and leave it. There’s no need to wipe it off which is kind of nice.Continue reading "Tilex Shower Cleaner"
