Mom will appreciate the design and tech behind these fast-drying towels

They’re softer, more hygienic and now 31 percent off.

Finding the right Mother’s Day gift can be tricky. Flowers and chocolate are always appreciated, but they don’t last long. In contrast, the Montage Fast-Drying Bath Towels will be appreciated on a daily basis for many years to come. Thanks to the latest cotton technology, these super-soft towels don’t take all day to dry. As a result, they stay fresher for longer. You can grab a pack of two now for $61.99 at the PopSci Shop.

You may not realize it, but most towels are pretty unhygienic. Soggy cotton is the perfect breeding ground for molds, bacteria, and other microscopic nasties. Rubbing yourself down with germs almost defeats the object of taking a bath. The Montage towels avoid this problem with the help of some science.

Made from 100 percent stapled cotton, these lightweight towels dry much faster than the traditional alternative. The cotton is also very soft to the touch and surprisingly breathable. Each towel measures 28 x 55 inches, and the pack of two should ensure your Mom always has one dry towel.

The two-pack is worth $90, but you can order now for just $61.99.
