If by "towel" you meant anything made of cloth, DON'T. If the hamster tries to shred it, as s/he almost certainly will, the fibres pose the same dangers as those found in fluffy bedding. Paper kitchen roll is little better since it's extremely tough and most have been designed to not fall apart on contact with water, putting your hamster at risk of impaction should it be swallowed or pouched.
