Can You Put Wet Towels in a Towel Warmer?

#oshibori #hottowels

If you own a business in Australia that belongs to the service industry like restaurants, spas, or dental clinics, you may already own a towel warmer or looking to buy new ones. In order to prolong the life of your equipment, there’s one important question that you may be asking: Can you put wet towels in a towel warmer? 

The Short Answer

The short answer to this question is YES. You need to use damp/wet or pre-moistened towels in your towel warmer. However, it doesn’t mean that you will put soaking wet towels in your towel warmer. It may ruin your appliance. Remember: Do not saturate them. You need to wring them out before putting it inside the towel warmer.  

The reason behind this is, if you put a dry towel inside the towel warmer, you run the risk of fire if it gets too dried out. Plus, you will shorten the lifespan of the unit. 

However, one of the things that you should be careful with is to maintain that the inside of your towel warmer is always dry to avoid mould. One helpful habit is to put the towels in about an hour before you need them to be ready and turn them off after you’re done for the day. This is important because even if you put in wet or damp towels, they would eventually dry out and then the heat given off by the towel warmer can cause the towels to catch fire. 

It also helps to leave the door open for a while when you turn it off (after cleaning it with a damp cloth). This is to help make sure it doesn’t get mouldy or stinky because that’s definitely bad for business.

Cleanliness of Your Warmer

Always keep in mind that a clean hot towel warmer is the mark of a professional facility. Where the health and well-being of the client is a top priority. Even in places that the client may never see, such as the inside of your towel warmer. 

You want your clients to be using clean hot towels that are prepared the right way and from a clean towel warmer that is totally sanitized and free of mould and mildew.

Are Towel Warmers Worth It?


I’m sure you’ve heard about towel warmers and wondered whether towel warmers are worth it, but never had the time to do any research and find out whether or not they could be useful in your business. That’s understandable since towel warmers are often considered an unnecessary accessory by some. However, when you get to know more about towel warmers, you may change your opinion.

Basically, a towel warmer is an appliance used in salons, restaurants, dentists, etc to help store hot towels and keep them at the ideal serving temperature. This article will discuss the merits of investing in this piece of equipment.

Some people argue that towel warmers are unnecessary since you can just simply pop your towel into the microwave and it’s good to go. While this may sound true, it’s not really the case. Microwaves don’t heat evenly, so a Hot towel heated in the microwave will have hot and cold spots. Externally the towel may be hot but as you unroll the towel the centre is cold. The opposite is also true, and this is where it’s a real danger. The towel feels like the right temperature on the outside but when your customer unrolls it, the inside is extremely hot and can cause injury.

Here are some reasons why investing in a towel warmer is a good decision and why towel warmers are worth it:


Unlike microwave ovens which are bulky, towel warmers are space-saving with a very small footprint. They can be stored in any discreet part of your establishment for easy access. Our towel warmers are Japanese made, where the focus is on quality and where space is at a premium.

Ease of Use

Easy to Clean

Towel warmers are a breeze to maintain. For super-easy cleanup, all you have to do is wipe it out with some dry paper towels or a dry cloth at the end of the day to absorb moisture and prevent odour. That’s it! And it will be ready to be used the next day. 

No Wastage

Towel warmers are designed for one task only – to heat towels, so they are very cheap to run, easy to maintain, and won’t overheat or dry out your towels. This ensures no wastage.

The Goal

While you can also provide hot towels to your customers by pouring hot water over towels, it’s important to remember why you decided to have hot towels in your business.
