wooden towel

can anyone help? i used to have a scraper thing which you use after a shower to get most of the water off your skin. it's about a foot long, like a long tongue, and slightly curved. i think it was called an indian towel, and i think i got it from the body shop! all searches are coming up blank. does anyone know what i'm talking about, and can you help me to find a place to buy another one?!

thanks for reading.

ok, talking to myself again :oops: :lol:

i've found this bodyflick thing, which serves the same purpose. i wanted a wooden one, but i think this will have to do.

it's actually a strigil of sorts, but i just want to use it to help dry myself after showering. it exfoliates too, and saves on towel washing.

I was going to say it's a strigil.........as used in Roman times - was tempted to post a painting featuring one, but as it contains a particularly comely wench in a state of deshabille, I desisted.......... (for Art-lovers, Alma Tadema, "The Tepidarium) :mrgreen:

bodyflik looks great. perfect for window cleaners who like to shower a lot.

I took a photo of my mum for a competition a few years ago, she's nude (she has a strategically placed blanket which covers up the fact that she was actually wearing pants...) but has her back to the camera. she explained it to my dad as :"if it's in black and white or it's painted, then it's art."
He then insisted that as it's art they should have a copy of it in the diningroom, preferably above his desk :roll:

they do. my brothers and sister find it embarassing but it makes me proud. didn't get anywhere with the competition though lol!

the bodyflik is great. my skin is still a bit damp after using it, so then i just use a flannel to dry it completely plus a small towel to dry my (medium length) hair. i keep the shower cubicle closed so i don't get cold whilst drying myself!
