Q:

What is a fingertip towel used for?

A:

Quick Answer

Fingertip towels are used to dry hands after washing in the bathroom or kitchen, according to Macy’s. These rectangular linen towels are often used in place of hand towels because they are smaller and appear more inviting. They can also be decorative, especially when chosen to match the room’s decor.

Full Answer

Fingertip towels are placed in a towel holder near the sink or wash bowl and provide a better alternative to drying hands on shower towels. They are either draped over other towels or hung separately on a specialized fingertip towel holder. Used fingertip towels are placed in a basket, hamper or similar receptacle for subsequent washing.
