on the towel

After a bath in salty water, what else is there to do than lie down on a towel and dry?

Well, you can also choose to lie down on a towel, and leak your dark blue dye onto it as you dry, and then get shifted onto a cleaning rag for punishment.

The Sideways Grande Cloche in the making made the latter choice.

Oh, and did I mention that such behaviour will subsequently also be punished by a lengthy vinegar bath? Much less pleasant than the salty one. But it was your choice, my dear.
