Attention all Germophobes! This Towel will Change Color After Detecting Bacteria

Are you afraid of germs? How much? Are you a germophobe? Have trouble touching door knobs? Do you cringe when sitting next to someone who sneezes? What about cleaning your home or even yourself? What towels do you use? Do you constantly find yourself washing those towels after every use just to be safe?

What if that all could change? What if there was a towel that could let you know the exact moment it warrants a wash?

Welcome to the Mizu Smart Towel, the softest and most durable towel that senses bacteria.

Woven by Xinjiang cotton with Japanese craftsmanship in every stitch, this new towel is not only quick to dry or hyper absorbent, but it uses Mizutech. In other words, the towel will change color after detecting any “residual soap, dirt, sweat, and bacterial metabolites.”

The Mizu Smart Towels are available in three sizes: Bath Towel, Hand Towel, and Baby Towel. A complete set costs around $190. Through the Kickstarter-only deal, you can purchase the towels at 68% off. $59 sounds far superior to $190.

Regardless, the steep cost may be worth it! Especially to those who fear germs and know that after three days towels are “teeming with hundreds of thousands of organisms.” After placing the towels in the regular wash, its color will reset and its cotton will be softer!
