Life is packed with challenging in-between moments. Your kitchen is full of delicious cooking smells—but there are still fifteen minutes left on the timer. The new season of your favorite show drops on a streaming service at midnight—but you can’t watch until the following evening. A hot shower sounds like a wonderful way to warm up—but you’ll have to fight a chill while you step into your clothes.

We can’t solve all of your problems, but we do have a solution for that icy place in between bath and fully dressed: towel warmers. Here are three smart options to bridge the gap.
