Despite what you might think the real purpose of the Pee Towel is, it is not actually meant to be urinated on. Instead, it is simply a traditional tea towel with a urine-themed pattern on it. The name itself is a pun on both of these facts.

Created by Amy Rawson, the Pee Towel was inspired by her day job as a lab tech. One of her duties revolves around urinalysis, part of which involves a microscopic examination that is conducted to look for crystal formation. These urinary crystals are a result from a supersaturation of the urine with particular substances that form distinctive shapes, the most common being calcium oxalate. It is this crystal formation that we see on the Pee Towel. Stats for Urine-Themed Rags Trending: Older & Chilly
