This towel detects bacteria by changing color

Are you afraid of germs? 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?

Conjunctivitis, skin infections, gonorrhea, scabies and fungs are just some of the fungs that can be transmitted by sharing towels. (source) While you might consider your family to be a safe haven, you don’t want to take risks with the most fragile, like a baby.


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

Presenting Mizu, the smart towel that detects impurities and eliminates 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.”

There is the hand towel, the bath towel and also the small bib to protect the smaller ones we love so much.

Mizu Towel

The Mizu Smart Towels are available in three sizes: Bath Towel, Hand Towel, and Baby Towel. A complete set costs around $190. Through the Indiegogo deal, you can purchase the towels at 65% off including two bath towels and 4 hand towels. The starting price is 49$.

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!
