Helping My Mother Helped Me Help My Son

I grew up in a busy household. With 5 kids and a close-knit extended family, we were constantly holding large get-togethers. Especially in the summer (since we had a pool and large yard). My mom was very organized and neat. In our house, everything had a place and everything was in it’s place. Unfortunately, the place for wet towels and bathing suits was hung over the fence. This never sat well with my Mom. The towels and bathing suits got snagged and the look of the towels hung all over the fence bothered my Mom’s sense of order.

Then, one day, after looking at some outdoor furniture that we were told was made out of Furniture Grade PVC pipe, we had our ‘ah ha’ moment.

Although the end product looks simple, it took a lot of time and trial and error to come up with the design, but we are thrilled with the results.

A few years later my young family's life was shook up. My son was diagnosed with Autism and severe anxiety. He was in Kindergarten and the school, although had good intentions, did not handle it well. I chose to leave my job to care for my son through this time. That is how TowelMaid was born. He is doing much better now and I couldn't be more proud of how hard he works. He is truly an amazing kid.

I am driven to help other children and parents. So, TowelMaid gives to charities locally and world wide. WE SUPPORT AUTISM AWARENESS. We also give to children's health charities, and charities supporting other mothers around the world.

Frequently asked questions
Do the DIY plans come with materials to build a rack?

No, the DIY plans are downloadable instructions to build your own rack. No materials are included. The plans include tons of info like where you can buy furniture grade pvc, how much you need, how to cut and drill holes in your pvc and the measurements for each piece.

Do ToweMaid racks come in different colors?

No. I used to offer a few colors but the colored racks were not holding up. Darker colors absorb heat from the sun causing the colored racks to be hot to the touch and even causing the crossbars to slightly warp. White reflects the heat of the sun which means the racks stay cool to the touch and don't warp.

What is so great about furniture grade pvc?

Our PVC is enhanced with a combination of titanium dioxide, UV stabilizers and impact modifiers during manufacturing. Plumbers PVC is not. This has advantages in appearance, strength, and durability.

It's high gloss finish is smooth to the touch and virtually blemish free (no printing, bar codes, etc)

Fittings are tapered at the ends for a cleaner look

It is much more rigid and strong and holds more weight without bending.

Fittings have deeper sockets which increase the stability of the racks

UV and weather resistant so it resists degrading, yellowing and fading. It is mildew resistant, resists cracking, chipping and breaking and will not rust

Easy to clean with mild soap and soft cloth.
