How to Make a Hot Towel at Home

One of the best parts of getting a shave at the barber is the hot towel. However, if you have a Micro Touch One, there’s no need to go to the barbershop to get a perfect shave and it’s rather easy to make your own hot towel at home.  Here are several steps to prepare the towel and several different ways to heat it up:

Micro Touch One and hot towel

Step 1 – Get a Towel

Simple enough. Grab a towel from around the house, preferably a rather small one. A wash cloth will also work and some people prefer it – really, any towel will do.

Step 2 – Pick an Essential Oil

Oils are used by barbers to make the towel more relaxing for the customer. It’s not completely necessary, but is definitely preferred. You can pick whatever scent you like the best, but some suggestions of common scents for hot towels are lavender and eucalyptus.

Step 3 – Apply the Oil to your Towel

It’s important to apply the oil to the towel while it is dry. All you need is a couple of small drops around the towel for a great and refreshing smell.

Step 4 – Heat Your Towel

There are several different methods you can use for heating your towel:

  1. Running the towel under hot water. This method can be good if your faucet pumps out steaming hot water, but if it doesn’t, you might want to try another method.
  2. Microwave it. Run your towel under the faucet and ring it out until it is just a little damp. Then, throw it in the microwave for about thirty seconds and that’s it. You have a hot towel ready to go!
  3. Using hot water from the teapot. If your faucet water doesn’t get hot enough and you don’t want to use the microwave method, this could be the right method for you. Also, this step lets you also boil some additional water that you can use for your morning tea or coffee.

Step 5 – Apply to Face

Finally, apply your hot towel to your face, sit back…and enjoy!

Walmart Customers Love MicroTouch One

MicroTouch One Walmart reviewsMore and more people are discovering MicroTouch One and sharing their experiences about our single-blade, classic razor.

Micro Touch One customers from Walmart have been offering their ratings and praises online.   Check out some of their remarks about Micro Touch One.

“It gave me one of the best shaves I’ve ever had and no nicks at all.” – KozmoKing

“I highly recommend this product. Of course, it is just a traditional, old-design safety razor. But how great it is! The body is solid brass, chrome-plated, and will last a lifetime. I bought it six months ago, and am only on the second blade. I have a heavy beard. I shave in the bath and just use glycerin soap on my face. Works great. This has saved me buying endless disposable razors. A pack of razor blades is a couple of bucks, and will last a year. I am going to get one for my son.” – Mike01313

“Wow, first time I used it, I was impressed and realized why my papa never switched! Great smooth shave….” – Smiley

“Well balanced and gives a smooth shave. I gave it it’s first test on a five day growth. It worked just fine and much better than any disposable I ever had. No cuts or nicks. I’m very pleased with my purchase, just wish I had done it sooner.” – 60TR3

 

 

 

 

Steps for a Perfect Shave

You don’t need to go to the barbershop to get a perfect shave, especially if you own a Micro Touch One. With these easy to follow steps, you’ll be able to achieve the perfect shave right from home.

Step 1: Timing

Timing is very important for achieving the perfect shave. Ideally, the best time to shave is right when you get out of the shower, when your beard is well hydrated. Shaving right after a shower will ensure that you have a close and non-irritating shave.

Step 2: Apply Shave-Oil

After you get out of the shower, it is ideal to apply shave-oil to your wet beard. Shave oil is important because it raises your beard hairs for a close shave, provides a slick surface for the razor to glide on, and will help prevent razor rash.

Micro Tpuch One steps for perfect shaveStep 3: Apply Shaving Cream 

On top of the shave oil, apply your shaving cream. Aggressively work it into your beard, using either your fingertips or a brush. Take a little extra time to work the cream into sensitive areas of your skin.

Step 4: Shave

Now that you’ve taken all the steps necessary to get a great, clean shave, it’s time to put our MicroTouch One razor to work. Shave with the grain to start, using short strokes and rinsing off the blade often. You should only go against the grain to get hairs that were left behind at the end of everything. Give a quick rub to your face to make sure everything is smooth and that you didn’t miss any spots.

Step 5: Moisturize

When you finished the shave, splash some cold water on your face to soothe the skin and help pores close up quicker. Finally, toss on some aftershave to soothe and moisturize the skin.

 

There you have it. Follow these steps and you’ll have a perfect shave every time. You don’t need to go to a barbershop when you have a Micro Touch One Razor. Happy shaving!

Four Easy Steps to a Barbershop Shave

MicroTouch One Easy Barbershop Shave

For eons, man has been fixated on facial hair- since the days when a good shave involved scraping one’s face with a rock for an hour or two, to the elegance of a straight-razor shave in a barbershop, to today’s age of disposable razor blades. The barbershop route has traditionally been known as the source of getting the best shave. They involved hot steamed towels to open the pores and raise hair follicles closer to the skin, a masterful wielding of the katana of male hygiene – the straight razor.

His art was not only to keep from cutting you, but to observe the various ways your whiskers grow, just like a good hair stylist would to your hair.  All of these things can be done at home!

 

  • Get a quality razor blade.

Let’s face it – many men like to drive their razors until the wheels fall off. Having a razor that you can count on is key!   MicroTouch One is the perfect, classic, single-blade razor that you can use for YEARS to come!

 

  • MicroTouch One Barbershop Shave towelAlways Remember to Bring Your Towel

The hot towel is used for a continuous exposure to heat and moisture/steam. It works and feels much better than a few splashes of hot water in the sink. Use hot water and wring out a washcloth. Leave it on your face for 30-60 seconds.

 

  • Bucking the System

We men love going against the grain. Apply that thinking to your shave. Change your normal routine and shave in many different directions. After years of shaving the same way, the whiskers sway in the direction the blade travels, therefore becoming more difficult to shave, and leaving spots. Go against the grain and you’ll be ready.

 

  • Take It Slow

A slow and deliberate shave with your MicroTouch One ensures no whiskers are missed due to sloppiness, and you’ll reduce the chance of cutting yourself.

 

After your shave, finish with your usual – be it after-shave or some splashes of hot water – and you’ll be fresh, smooth, and ready for your day!
