How do you anchor a towel bar in drywall?

Attach the first towel-bar mount. Screw the bar's mounting plate (in this case a plastic bracket) into the anchor. The toggle will automatically swivel into position behind the drywall as the screw is driven in. Continue turning the screw until the toggle snugs up against the back side of the drywall.

Besides, how do you hang a towel rack without studs?

Use 1 3/4-inch drywall screws to mount the anchor plates. No need to drill pilot holes, just position the plates and use a power screwdriver to drive the screws through the drywall into the wood studs. If you cannot mount the anchor plates to the studs, you will have to secure them to the drywall.

Similarly, you may ask, where do you put wet towels in a small bathroom?

Stack Them Up. Stack towels on a bathroom towel shelf placed close to the shower. This bathroom storage does double duty: folded, clean towels sit above, while hooks below hang wet towels to dry. A small bathroom storage cabinet keeps other linens close.
