Not sure if this is typical for men but I just ball it up and throw it in the corner �� It's a little damp the second time around but still seems to work ok.

Hi, Ron! We like the towel bars you made. If you don't mind sharing, what kind of ss brackets did you use and where did you buy them? Thanks, Peggy and Jay

Someone may have mentioned these before, back when the thread was more active, but these "Powerlock" suction cup hooks are relatively inexpensive and work well for us.

We also have found the suction cup attachments don't work on any surface but metal and plastic. No photos, but we have "over the door" hooks which function nicely on the 17 b as this model has gaps above and below the door for air circulation. Do larger units also have that?

About towels. We we use towels made from microfiber rather than cotton. They take up much less space and absorb much more water than cotton ones. And relevant to this thread, they dry MUCH faster.

One of our favorite add-ones is the one inch diameter aluminum clothes rod with plastic ends intended for hanging clothes in the back seat of larger cars. It expands and retracts and the ends fit nicely in the cabinet door handles over the dinette. Walmart automotive section for about $12. The rod fits nicely behind the seat cushion for travel.

Hi: All... Command hooks on the bathroom wall just inside the door. Sewn on cotton tape tabs on the middle of the towel edge. Wet wash cloth hangs on the "Too stiff" shower hose above the sink. Custom made hand forged wrought iron hooks on the outside of the bathroom door for wet jackets/ hats etc. They were soaked after the "Egg fest" rally here in south wet Ontario this past weekend.
Should've changed the name to Egg Wash Fest 2017!!! Alf

Where do you hang towels?

I love these:

They are self adhesive and don't require any loop on the towel. Pack of two on Amazon for less than $4.00. Slide a in towel corner from the top to hang. Pull up to release.

I fabricated them myself. I'm lucky that I have a TIG welder and can weld the s/s myself.

A similar thing could be done using 3/8" s/s tube with wood brackets.

We use the towel racks multiple times a day and because the towels are spread out they get a chance to dry rather than stay damp and get wiffy.
