Linden Street Quick-Dri towels and bath rugs. The Quick-Dri products feature a special weave that helps them drive about 33% faster. In a more humid bathroom, that means the towels and mats can air-dry faster, making them less prone to mold and mildew. Stacks of Quick-Dri towels are a quick decorating fix. In this 30-minute makeover, I stocked the shelves with rolled up towels and laid down a Quick-dri mat. I took away the boring Kleenex tissue box to expose the neatly stacked facial tissues and use a simple binder clip ring on top where they are pulled one by one. At the very top, I filled an American Living vase with a $3 arrangement of corner deli eucalyptus — when the steamy air fills the bathroom, it activates the essential oil in the leaves, giving the whole room a fresh, aromatic scent. The old-fashioned, water-wasting showerhead was replaced with this Kohler Forte showerhead, which is incredibly water-efficient and uses just 1.75 gallons per minute. Behind it, I hung a sprig of eucalyptus to help bring that natural aromatherapy into the shower. Finally, instead of two shower curtains (including a PVC liner that off-gassed in the small space), this PVC-free, nylon shower curtain works without a liner, just like the ones in hotel rooms. It's also machine washable, which makes it very easy to keep clean. With the 30 minutes up, I now had 1 hour to makeover the biggest challenge yet — the bedroom. -Danny Seo (Images: Danny Seo) Danny Seo is a leading lifestyle expert on all things green and eco-friendly.
