As I am an older lady, I have already been through the “change of life”. The doctor’s told me that the hot flashes would be gone after I finished going through the “change”. They were wrong. I still have them. But I took matters into my own hands when the perspiration got too bad. During the hot weather especially, no one would catch me without a towel around my neck.
During the “change”, come the so call it “invention” of the menopause towel. Believe you me, I didn’t just have white workout towels around my neck. I bought bath towels of every color that the store had at that time. They were cut into four strips, and a very good friend sewed the edges for me so that they wouldn’t ravel out. There were towels of every color to match every outfit that I had. My friends were really amazed at the towels, and told me that I should sell them as ‘menopause towels” and they bet that I could make a lot of money.
I never did market the towels, but I still use them to this day because I am one of those unlucky people that still has hot flashes many years after I finished going through the “change”.
