BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of Invention

This invention relates to a towel.

2. Background of Invention

Originally a person would have to go to another location, grab a towel or have it hanging around their neck. But with the Universal Sports Towel the wearer has already placed it on there body for easy access. Towels are made for drying and so is The Universal Sports Towel. But with the convenience, of already having it available for using, on the body, of the wearer.

The Universal Sports Towel is there if needed. It is placed by the wearer on the body to absorb water and moisture. The Universal Sports Towel lies against the body to absorb moisture while making body movements that cause sweating or moisture of some kind. Just like the headband for instance, it is placed around the head by the wearer to absorb sweat. The Universal Sports Towel is placed over the head, resting on the shoulders absorbing sweat, from the body. It is there at all times when the need calls for it once it is place by the wearer on the body. It solves the problem of carrying a towel while exercising or doing a task that calls for sweating or simple absorbing water from the body.

The Universal Sports Towel has already been placed over the head and resting on the shoulders to began absorbing moisture from the body, before working out, or doing whatever it is that makes one sweat. It also eliminates the problem of stopping your workout to go and get a towel. It also eliminates that annoying feeling of having a towel hanging around the neck. People normally have to go and get a towel from one location or another. The Universal Sports Towel has already been absorbing moisture while working out or whatever the need would be for using a towel the old way.

When using The Universal Sports Towel going to get a towel will not be necessary, while using The Universal Sports Towel because it is resting on your shoulders to use when the need arrives. When needed The Universal Sports Towel is already resting on the body absorbing the water or moisture, constantly.

The Towel Garment Patent Number 01432249 Patented Oct. 17, 1922, only has one length and it is time for an improvement of the towel overall. The length is long and doesn't come in all sizes, like The Universal Sports Towel. This doesn't give the wearer much of a choice to choose from as far as the lengths are concerned, and also it converts into a towel which The Universal Sports Towel differs from the normal towel and it gets a person away from reaching for a towel, or going to another location, to get a towel.

Also my Universal Sports Towel can be flipped up over the head and used as a head covering for one reason or another. The back can be flipped up and placed over the head to wipe the hair after getting out of a pool. The front can be lifted up to wipe the face, ears neck and head. The shorter lengths are great for these small tasks. It really needs no conversion, because it is resting on the shoulders by the wearer to absorb moisture from the body, when the body releases moisture or water. Plus it is time for an improvement of the towel as a whole.

The solution to this problem was not invented before because it seems as if other inventors did not have the need for this type of absorbing. I needed to use my hands for many other things while working out and doing my daily exercises, such as lifting weights, doing sit ups, running, and drinking water. When I needed The Universal Sports Towel it was already resting upon my shoulders for my convenience, absorbing sweat from my body, mainly my back.

I must admit that sometimes my body became over heated from The Universal Sports Towel, when I wore the long version of The Universal Sports Towel.

I would wear a shorter version of The Universal Sports Towel, which made me feel much more comfortable, while wearing it. My invention, has been tried, by myself and it has proven itself to me, over and over, and over again to be just what I need after a workout or just plain ole bathing and relaxing.

I also can see in my minds eye, toddlers wearing it while running around the house with just a pamper on and The Universal Sports Towel. They would be very comfortable while wearing it. Before I invented The Universal Sports Towel, I would have to reach for a towel or have a towel in my hand to remove sweat from my body. Also before I would have to continue to wipe my front and back areas with the towel. With The Universal Sports Towel it was already absorbing moisture from my body. Unlike a towel after bathing, for the elderly, they have to wrap the towel around the body and use the other hand to hold on to, something to get out of the tub or shower. With The Universal Sports Towel the elderly can use both hands as desired. All they have to do is close the fasteners on the sides and use both hands as they feel free to do so. As with the towel little babies tend to make a mess and the towel has to be sought after to clean up the mess. With The Universal Sports Towel it can be used as a bib to keep the mess at bay, just resting on the baby's shoulders, waiting to absorb, whatever mess that they may make.

After using The Universal Sports Towel for myself I have come to the conclusion that this towel would benefit everyone. My soul aim is to let everyone else have the opportunity to experience wearing, my Universal Sports Towel for their own usage. Teenagers can't seem to wait to wear The Universal Sports Towel at their basketball games. They can see the benefit of using The Universal Sports Towel at their high school basketball games. After using The Universal Sports Towel for my own use. I believe that everyone who needs to absorb moisture and water in one way or another should own The Universal Sports Towel. Prior inventors invented many different absorbing towels but none is quite as unique as my Universal Sports Towel. It adds comfort as well as relaxation to the wearer. The very idea that everyone can wear it from adults to children, is quite a difference from anything else of its kind. You will not find this lying around alone on some chair or shelf It can always, be used by all different races, creeds and color. It is very easy to put on and take off. Unlike other towels you will have to wrap it, tie it, or just plain ole let it hang around the neck or waist, tied to stay on the body. Whereas a towel, just hangs on the body without the support of a fastener or snap, of some kind. With The Universal Sports Towel a person can and will be wearing it and using it when they feel the need. It is already on the body, and that is a plus. It is safe for all mankind to enjoy in the comfort of the home and abroad.
