sharing towels

Sharing towels causes infections. For your health and fitness - stop sharing towels. Whether it is in the home or or gym or in a hotel - using someone else's towel can lead to catching an infection or disease that will cost you more than just being uncomfortable for a while. Bath towels,  kitchen towels, hand towels and beach towels are great breeding grounds and/or retainers of all kinds of stuff, especially skin surface critters. It has been conclusively proven that infectious bacteria may be easily transferred in increasing varieties and numbers through sharing towels. Bath towels, kitchen towels, hand towels and beach towels all are carriers of infectious and contagious diseases. The number of bacteria on your body right now is greater than the number of people in the United States. Real dangers from infectious organisms exist in the common bathroom towel for at least 48 hours after primary contamination. Bacteria are readily transferred from one user to another through the medium of the bath towel and by sharing towels. It is a proven fact that infectious and contagious diseases are spread through sharing towels. The best way to protect your health and fitness from bacteria on bath towels is through personalized towel tags - magnetic tags - Magtagz.

Health Care professionals recommend people to color code their bath towels, hand towels, kitchen towels and beach towels. Magtagz helps to prevent the spread of infections  and contagious diseases through sharing bathroom towels, hand towels, kitchen towels and beach towels. Our color coded magnetically applied towel tags allow users to identify which towel is theirs quickly and avoid sharing more than someone else towel - it is the best way to protect your health and fitness.

Our magnetic towel tag supports towel reuse programs in hotels and motels. Our research has found that one of the major reasons why people do not participate in towel reuse programs is because they do not know which towel is theirs and are afraid of catching an infection or contagious diseases from sharing towels. We have found that when people know which towel is theirs they reuse their towels more - saving water and laundry costs - and they replace their towels less frequently. Magtagz saves you more than money! It's simply the best way to personalize your towel and protect your health and fitness.

Magtagz enable you to keep your color coordinated schemes in your home without having different colored Bath towels, hand towels, kitchen towels and beach towels.

Getting an infection or contagious disease costs more than money. We lose more in productivity than the actual cost in treating the problem. Not only do you feel miserable you get nothing done and you pay in more ways than one. Protect your health - your health and fitness is critical to your well being.

Tests show that bacteria on a towel can grow from one to 2/3 million in a kitchen or washroom in a matter of just four hours - to 1bn after 1 days normal use - to 10bn 2-3 days later and to 100bn plus by the end of the week! Given that we wash hand towels once every week on average its no wonder that hygienic hand drying is of such crucial importance in the promotion of good food safety, health and personal hygiene. Since sharing towels causes infections - stop sharing towels if you want to protect your health. - Source
