    I'm looking for a towel warmer recommendation-low profile, close to the wall(small bathroom), and electric. Thanks!

    I put one in in my master bath remodel...it doesn't get the towel hot, but it is warm...very nice after coming out of the shower. Since the towel quickly dries, it doesn't get funky as quicly, either. Wire in a digital timer and use a GFI circuit. I can't remember the brand...I bought it on-line, but it was sold at HD's Expo Center as well.
  5. how about

    how about a toilet paper warmer too!!

    nothing like having a warm cozey feel down there too!!


    just kidding

    I had an electric towel warmer in an apartment I was in for three years. It never really got the towels very warm. Don't know the brand. I hope there are better models out there for you.

    Now those....... I'm aware of. And don't like them..... When I sit down to, well.. you know, I want to sit on a cold seat.... a warm one makes me think someone else just got up..........

    thanks!

    You guys (& gals) are tooooooo much! Thanks for the laughs and advice! Our towels never get completely dry between showers in winter. Warm towels-ahhhh-life's short!
  10. one time towels

    I know one thing for sure, around this house
    the towels get used once and once only


    then they are thrown into the laundry.....

    God knows how long they might get reused if
    you hung them on a towel warmer...

    they would sort of get a life of their own after a while...

    I wonder why that is? After you are done taking a shower..you are clean... and water that remains on one's body is clean.!?! So, besides getting the towel wet..how does it become dirty after one use!!! :confused:

    A damp towel is more prone to mildew than a dry one...

    So, those moist towels in the hamper must be.... no good for the air quality in one's home..

    I would imagine that a clean but moist towel would dry quicker hanging up and I'm sure long before mildew sets in...

    I've had an electric towel warmer made by Runtal in my bathroom for about ten years now. It has three heat settings so the towels can be warm or really hot if you want. It's also great for keeping the bathroom comfortably warm even though the rest of the house might be too cold for wet naked standing around. I have it on a timer so that it's only on in the mornings. And it's low profile.

    Towel warmer for tight spaces

    I know that this is a old post but perhaps it will be helpful for someone who is researching what towel warmer to purchase.

    A few of the main brands in the US are: Amba, Warmrails, WarmlyYours.

    If you are looking for a low profile towel warmer that works well in tight spaces, you might consider: http://onlytowelwarmers.com/products/amba-swivel-jill-b002-plugin-mounted-towel-warmer-towel-dryer
