Found 29th Jul 2013
Saw this in Ikea Straiton today (loads on display). Appears that it's a national deal.

An IKEA Nackten guest towel, 30x50cm.

Hope this helps someone - thought it wasn't too bad for the price..........

Great for polishing the car

Wow you must hate your guests.

Will pop into Straiton store tomorrow.. cheers

I absolutely love these little towels!! they've been a marvellous help for our little family... soo much better than muslin cloths if you have a baby (and cheaper) they're just that bit bigger but thinner than a flannel, so great to pop in your bag and perfect for little hands, especially when potty training, not to mention they wash really really well... so as usual I'll be buying myself £1 worth next time I'm in Ikea to keep our stocks up

These make great sweat towels to take to the gym. Bargain too!

Looks soft and fluffy :-)

Yup great sweat gym towels

At this price you could use it and chuck it away. Be cheaper than washing it!

great for dishes, and muslin squares for little ones. always grab a hand full when in, would say more a face cloth than hand towel.

Why is it called a guest towel?

Banned

You could always pinch one or two from your hotel, not sure about whether legal

got loads to swap my hand towels everyday :-)

Guess t'owl is a game I play with my northern friends at night.

Cheaper than spending on £1.60 on tissue paper

Must be a gag for local people. We're proper sophisticated down south - we use knives, forks & don't put gravy on our chips.

Very slow tonight. Just got the gag. Got to be up early tomorrow to go down t'pit. Anyway voted hot & thanks to op.

Captain beaky; I too originate from the south. I currently carry on the calling as a licensed inn keeper in the northern city of Sheffield. My current understanding of the local perculiar dialect leads me to believe that the game which is alleged to be played on Friday evenings by duelling duck is "Guess the Ale" . It is a play on words, a double entendre if you will. I beg duelling duck to confirm my understanding.

Guess the owl, run through a northernising filter -> Guess t'owl.

Just like the old joke: a Yorkshireman goes into the vet, he says "Vetunry, will you have a look at me cat?" The vet says "Is it a tom?" The Yorkshireman says "No, I brought it with me."

A few years later the man's dog dies and he loved it so much he wanted to have a gold statue made of it. He asks a jeweller how much it would cost to make one. The jeweller says "Do you want it eighteen carat?" The man says "Nay, lad, I want it chewin' bone."

If you have to explain it to that length, by default it wasn't funny.

Be our guest, be our guest,
Put our service to the test.
See this towel from ikea?
20p! That's not too dear.
Be our guest, be our guest, be our guest!!
Hehe 'guest' towel.

Yes, but I don't have a hotel.

I just give them an all purpose roll of bog paper.

You're not sure whether stealing is legal or not? Just because you pay to stay in the room, it doesn't make the contents of the room your property!

I don't care if people steal them or not, and I doubt the hotel is too bothered either (though I've heard cases where they've charged it to your credit card in the past) but it's clearly not legal!

And the Corby trouser press.........

Like to see my "guests" wrap this around themselves after a shower, fantastic, I always though IKEA sold stuff of little use.

I prefer to give my guests nothing but the finest egyptian cotton towels, and of course the obligatory Ferrero Roche.

great! sadly no ikea near me, but heat added.

Will pop into Straiton store tomorrow.. cheers



Is it possible to just 'pop' into an Ikea? I was under the impression entering Ikea was an operation on par with a NATO war effort.

I don't know how the other stores are set out but it IS actually possible in the Straiton (Edinburgh) store. The 'marketplace' where they have all the bits and bobs, including towels, is on the ground floor, and you can just walk straight through there without having to go upstairs to the main display areas. Just cut through the aisles where all the flatpacks are and hey presto, you are at the checkouts! I should imagine all the stores will be pretty well alike but there IS some willpower required - even if you are 'popping in' it's still unlikely that you will come out without some little extras!

You could always just follow the link and check stock availability at your local Ikea.

Shouldn't take too longgggggggggggg............

I remember getting admonished for using the downstairs door when ikea Edinburgh first opened. Thankfully, as you say, they have changed their minds about the use of this shortcut. They also have shortcuts in the market place so you don't have to walk through every section. Also you don't have to drive all the way around the perimeter in the Ikea lane to get into the car park now!


guess what its a guest towel u never guess who will b your guest Lol!!!!!! but its cheap enough to stock up on:)

"Quick quick, put the guest towel on the rail i don't want them ruining our good towels!!!"

No, it WAS funny, and if certain members didn't get it, it's not DD's fault, he could hardly have been clearer, but it was Ducking nice of him to explain it anyway. He (he? we're not familiar, but DD sounds like a bloke from this) didn't have to, and it may have been funnier if he hadn't, but it was worth it for the "is it a tom" joke - I LOLed.

Wow you must hate your guests.



I just came up with a FLIPPIN' AMAZING idea.
I'm gonna shout it out now so you all don't miss it. X)

IF YOU HAVE GUESTS STAYING FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, AND THEY ARE PROLONGING THEIR VISIT BEYOND WHAT MANNERS DICTATE OR BEYOND WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE, OR HECK, EVEN IF THEY'RE ONLY STAYING AS LONG AS YOU PREVIOUSLY ARRANGED, BUT NOW THEY'RE HERE YOU'VE CHANGED YOUR MIND ABOUT THE DURATION, HERE'S WHAT YOU DO TO EDGE THEM OUT WITHOUT HAVING THE INEVITABLY AWKWARD CONFRONTATION:

YOU PUT OUT THESE GUEST TOWELS FOR THEM EVERY DAY.
THEN, ONCE YOU DECIDE YOU WANT THEM OUT, EACH SUBSEQUENT DAY, THE NEW TOWELS GET SMALLER AND SMALLER AND SMALLER!

YOUR DESPERATION AND THE TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH THEM WILL DICTATE HOW EXPONENTIALLY ACCELERATED THIS PROCESS BECOMES.

They'll soon get the message and go find a hotel, hopefully BEFORE YOU GET TO A PIECE THE SIZE OF A COIN.

And at these prices, you can now afford to cut them to smithereens!




You're welcome.
