Mess Proof Hand Towel

One thing that drives me crazy in the bathroom is the never ending battle to keep the hand towel hanging nicely. Inevitably it gets thrown back onto the ring, tossed on the counter, or dropped on the floor. I decided that I needed to tackle this problem and find a quick fix solution.

After folding the towel and placing it neatly over the ring I grabbed a coordinating ponytail holder and threaded both ends of the towel through the holder.

Now the towel hangs neatly and securely on the ring until I remove the ponytail holder. It's also just as easy to dry your hands with the towel still hanging on the ring.

You could also make a matching scrunchie type holder with elastic and the fabric of your choice.


For now, this quick and frugal bathroom fix works for me!

Oh man this is a perfect idea for my house. I have two preschoolers that love running off with hand towels! Thanks for the frugal tip!

awesome! what's it with preschoolers running off with towels? Mine do too, to my kitchen towel that I hang on my oven handle... but putting an elastic over it here would work too!

Thanks!

Hey, now that's a good tip! That's one of my pet peeves.
It reminded me of the kitchen towels my mom use to have that had a crocheted button loop on the top to fasten over the oven or fridge handle.

Great idea. Ours is always either wadded up on the counter or in the floor. This looks like it would work really well!
