Have you heard of Oshibori? For those who are not familiar, Oshibori literally translates to “wet wipe” or what we call hot towels. It’s commonly used in Japan in restaurants, bars, offices, salons and anywhere where you want to spoil your customer or make a good impression. Oshiklenz came from the word Oshibori plus Cleanliness (Oshi+Klenz). A play on words but paying homage to the origin of the hot towel concept. If you have dined in a Japanese restaurant in Australia or anywhere else in the world, chances are you have already encountered the use of hot or cold towels.
Aside from restaurants, other sectors of the service industry have also started using hot towels such as airlines, hotels, salons, and spas to separate themselves from the competition and impress their clients. As you can imagine, Oshibori or hot towels are well received by customers because of the warm feeling and comfort it brings.
1. It feels like a warm hug
Imagine yourself walking alone on a cold winter day and you decided to go into a spa to get a massage. As you get seated, a hot towel is handed to you and you feel a warm comfort almost instantly.
Just like a good massage, hot towels provide comfort, relaxation, and also make you feel special and cared for. Warmth is such a unique and healing quality.
2. Keep your hands clean on-the-go
For hygienic purposes, it’s best to always keep a few of our towels or wipes in your bag. Aside from alcohol and sanitizing spray that tends to dry out your skin, hot towels can help in keeping your hands clean while maintaining your skin moisturized. Some of our towels are 100% cotton with essential oils, we have wipes that are 100% biodegradable including the packaging and we have dry airline towels that we supply to the airline industry. We have the right towel for your situation.
Especially during these times when people are extra cautious about hygiene, it’s a must to always carry hot towels with you.

Business today is ultra-competitive. Every business is fighting for the same customer and looking for ways to stand out from the crowd.
