Spa Towels and Linens
I purchased two sets of Shoo-Foo Spa towels in 2008. I have found the bamboo towels to be incredibly absorbent and they have stood up very well to regular washing and near-constant use. After growing up with “traditional” cotton terry towels that get smelly after one or two uses, I am amazed at how these bamboo towels stay fresh smelling between washes. I am so impressed that I would never go back to cotton towels. In fact, I’m looking to replace my current sets with new ones in a different colour.
I also recently purchased a bamboo bedding ensemble (pillow slips, fitted sheet and duvet cover) that I love as much as the towels. The fabric washes up brilliantly, and has such a silky smooth feel that it makes getting out of bed in the morning doubly challenging! Now I only wish that Shoo-Foo would branch out into clothing, too :)
You have helped me greatly. I am always really happy to gift your towels to friends and family – and I am never disappointed with their feedback. Everyone LOVES them!!!
Shoo-Foo Bamboo Products Used in Professional Spas
Just wanted to let you know that I did an enzyme treatment last week and tried out the Shoo-foo. The procedure requires that the enzyme remain damp/moist on the face for up to 20 minutes, either with a steamer or gauze. The Shoo-foo worked fine, held its moisture, didn’t fall apart when I cut a nose hole in it for client to breathe, and of course I was able to use it to rinse off the enzyme at the end.
So you can keep in mind, when speaking to estheticians, that in situations where they might be required to use soft, cotton, 4×4 inch gauze squares for the face (enzyme treatments, chemical peels), the Shoo-foo could be a replacement: it’s soft, strong, can cut a hole(s) in it for breathing or eyes if necessary and can use it to wash off product. And the good thing about using it versus gauze to wash off product is that gauze turns into a little ball and is very difficult to pull apart back to its original size, and often the gauze will rip when doing so. Shoo-foo pulls apart much more easily so less time wasted and it stays in tact.

Walking along, enjoying one weekday afternoon, people watching and enjoy the beauty of Vancouver. I pop over to Granville and as I walk I happen to notice a sign….from the gods of comfort and quality… indicating a sale on bamboo towels. As I enter, already singing the praises of bamboo eco sustainability and just plain awesomeness, I come across my new FAVORITE thing: bath towels. Yes, really. Their bamboo towels are ridiculous. So soft, lightweight, and super absorbent. I actually look forward to finishing a shower because I know what comes next. You are probably thinking “Is she really getting this excited about a towel??” Yes, yes I am.
I wasn’t kidding about this being my new favorite thing.
I went back and bought 5 more (for gifts too, not just for me). And don’t even get me started about the softness of their bed sheets.
My understanding, however, is that they do not normally open for walk-in business. However, I was told that you can order what you like from their website and can always go pick it up there.
If the Sound of Music was made now, and was set in Vancouver instead of WWII Europe, I’m pretty sure these towels would be sung about by Fraulein Maria. Just saying.
