When we work in PT clinics, they use regular towels that get frayed so fast. I recommend using these instead. They’re much higher quality than what I expected for the price. They are lightweight and not as rough as regular towels which makes them comfortable for the skin. Aside from that, they retain heat better which makes the heat of the hot compress consistent and comfortable throughout the treatment time. Unlike regular towels, they are also highly absorbent, and you don’t need 6-8 layers when wrapping the hot compress (you only need to fold it in half). These towels are also durable even after several washes they don’t fall apart, shred or unravel.
