A TowelDog is the best portable, affordable and convenient option for carrying a cloth or towel

TowelDog® --- a new, portable, and affordable hands-free towel caddy --- continues to wow the public and grow in popularity.

TJBrands LLC, which manufactures and sells this must-have towel caddy, sold out of the entire test-run production --- and will ramp up its initial full-run production by as many as 50,000 units in the near future.
The latest outpouring of excitement over TowelDog came at this year’s “International Home + Housewares Show” at Chicago’s McCormick Place on March 10th.

“Each time we bring the TowelDog to a trade show, people absolutely fall in love with it,” Jim Beachler, co-owner of TJBrands, said. “We even caught the eye of some upscale, well-known retailers and catalog companies at the International Home and Housewares show in Chicago.”

TowelDog, the first one-touch personal towel holder, is a small towel carrying device which is clipped to a belt or pocket. The device has a few soft teeth which grasps the towel. One press of the towel against the TowelDog and the towel stays in place … and not directly attached to you or your clothing. It’s a handy, clean, and hassle-free way to keep a towel nearby at all times.

There are many uses for a TowelDog. It is terrific for cooking, backyard grilling, working on the car, cleaning and other chores around the house or in the garage. Plus, TowelDog comes in handy for jogging, fishing, golfing, painting --- just about any activity for which having a towel nearby can be helpful.

TowelDogs are available in five fetching colors: Greyhound, Black Lab, Old Yeller, Pink Poodle, and Blue Heeler.

TJBrands originally debuted TowelDog at the recent 2012 Vacuum Dealer’s Trade Association Show in New Orleans --- where the TowelDog also sold out the first-run production stock available at the show.

For now, TowelDogs will be available for purchase at trade shows around the country or by special order ( or 1-800-570-0426).
