First, what is a fingertip towel? A fingertip towel is a small towel designed with the express purpose of quickly drying your fingertips. You may have also heard the term tip towel, but what is a tip towel? Fingertip towel and tip towel both refer to the same thing and can be used interchangeably. These towels can be functional, like those used by nail salons and golfers, or purely decorative.

What is the difference between a hand towel and fingertip towel? Fingertip towels tend to be larger than a washcloth but smaller than a hand towel. The size of fingertip towels can vary, but our Tan's Club tip towels are 11" by 18" and are available either grommeted or ungrommeted. Grommeted fingertip towels are ideal for golfers or gym-goers and can easily clip onto a golf or gym bag. On the other hand, our hand towels measure a generous 16" x 25" and are perfect for the bathroom or kitchen sink.
