Earth-friendly towels! As a mom who’s serious about keeping my family healthy despite the hazards of daily life, I know that toxic chemicals and menacing germs are big pieces of the puzzle that have to be addressed. I’m no germaphobe, but I certainly want to take the precautions I can to maintain a salubrious home environment. This also means I never use cleaning products that contain toxic chemicals. After all, that would mean exposing my family to the very things I’m trying to avoid, and subjecting their systems to unnecessary stress.
I’m very Earth-conscious too, so I try hard to make sure my choices reflect that. I love that whenever I find ways to keep my house free of toxins, I’m protecting the earth as well. Kinda awesome.
A big part of my job here at home is to keep researching and educating myself on the best ways to reach my healthy-home goals, and I’m always looking for quick, simple and effective methods to get ‘er done, because who has time for anything else??

Laguna Blue Towels are a Safer and Greener Solution
Can I just say, ohemgee! Their slogan is “The Smarter Towel” and they’re not joking, guys, and I’m excited to introduce you to these simple towels full of magic.
We’re all used to our regular ol’ cotton towels and rags that we use to clean and bathe with, but Laguna Blue is different in several exciting ways. First of all, the earth-friendly towels are made of 100% microfiber that’s been scientifically proven to reduce the spread of harmful bacteria in the home. Sounds to good to be true? That’s what I thought too, until I found out HOW it works.
Laguna Blue Towels Have Powerful Antibacterial Properties
Cotton is infamous for requiring harsh chemicals and hot water to become thoroughly clean. It’s a material that bacteria loves to hang out on because it provides a food source for them, and it’s possible to contract those germs from a cotton towel that hasn’t been through a rigorous cleaning.
Laguna Blue towels on the other hand aren’t made of cotton, and the microfiber fabric is woven in such a way that it catches viruses, parasites, fungi and bacteria like MRSA (methicillin-resistent staphylococcus aureus) from surfaces, holding onto them until laundering where they’re washed away.
In fact, Murray Cohen, PhD, conducted testing to make a scientific determination on the germ-resistance of the microfiber fabric. Here’s what he found:

Earth-Friendly Towels: Laguna Blue Towels
Laguna Blue microfiber towels hold 7x their weight in water, dry 50% faster than cotton towels, and use up to 50% less water in the laundry. Less wasted water, less used energy, no toxic fabric treatments, no need for chemical cleaners are all good for the earth.
Laguna Blue towels are also fade-resistant and non-linting, and they’re proven to be a remarkable 99.8% effective against preventing the spread of harmful bacteria such as MRSA.
It’s my new favorite (simple, quick, effective) way to keep a clean house, and I feel good about the job I’m doing here to keep my family safer here at home.
