OSHIBORI - Automatic Oshibori Dispenser

An Oshibori is a wet hand towel offered to customers in places such as restaurants or bars in Japan and in Japanese restaurants worldwide. Oshibori are used to clean one’s hands before eating, and have long been a common sight in Japan. Cold oshibori are used in summer, and hot oshibori in winter.


Our recommended Jido Oshibori-Ki which is Automatic Oshibori (sterilized Hot/Cold Towel) Dispenser is presented by BtoC Works Inc. that the company is supplying the most advance Oshibori-ki to approximately 800 units to nursing homes for more than 8 years.

It is QUICK REFRESH ! and single serving use, so very clean, safe, fuss-free!!

In nursing homes supplies where personal hygiene is essential, it is obvious that a hot and wet towel can’t be compared with sachet wipe or any individual wipe that can’t remove stains. A hot & wet towel is enough to remove any greasy stains immediately as they are large enough.

Length can be adjusted according to one’s requirement. For a face wipe, it is obvious to use a hot and wet towel which refreshes rather than any sachet wipes or individual wipes. Oshiboris are 100% natural fiber and are wetted with preservative free water just prior to dispensing. So the towels are safe to use on face or hands. Many chemicals used on the other wipes may cause irritation and damage to the skin.Our Jido Oshibori-ki towel dispenser allows users to control the towels temperature, length and humidity according to their requirement.
