Need Bath Towel recommendations

Started 1293647462.073 in For the Home Talk | Last reply 1296407920.107 by ibb38

Ones that will last through the washing machine and not fall apart. I also don't want to pay an arm and a leg. Any help would be appreciated. TIA!

I've purchased some wonderful Egyptian Cotton towels and bath sheets from overstock. They are very good quality and the price is amazing. I love the bath sheets - you can wrap one around you and have half a towel left to dry with! Anyway, last time I got a pair of those it was somewhere btwn $30 and $40 for the pair. Plus they had a huge variety of colors and also towel sets available in the same colors/style.

Bippity boppity BOOYAH!

I have three sets of Vera Wang towels from Kohls. The cream color ones are fine but my charcoal gray and sage green ones, the color came off in splotches on some of the towels. I don't know what kind of dye companies are using these days but I have had the same thing happen with green washcloths from Target and my coworker told me her blue washcloths from Walmart also get splotchy spots where the color disappears.{#emotions_dlg.confused1} I never had problems with my old towels from Sears, JC Penney, Montgomery Ward. So odd.

the brand Christy which is Egyptian cotton and available at department stores. Get the less costly version, and wait until the white sales to get them at a good price. I get them at Bloomingdales. They get softer, and are excellent!!!!!

I bought some "Hotel Collection" egyptian cotton towels at TJ Maxx one time when I was there and they are wearing like iron. They are nice heavy towels and absorb so well. They were VERY reasonably priced at TJ Maxx.

I did a search to see where I could find the same towel on line. They are available at Macy's and if they are on sale (as they are now when I just looked at Macy's site), they are pretty reasonable--more than at TJ Maxx, but TJ Maxx did not carry all the colors that Macy's does.

I know I really like this brand and have determined that when I need to replenish my towel supply, I would purchase this brand.

I purchased many large Egyptian bath towels towels at Costco for $6 each. They have a variety of sizes & colors --- best prices. I've been washing them for the last 11 years - perfect.

I only use white and they must be bleached. I recently got the Wal Mart ones that say on the tag that they "are bleachable for up to 50 washes" - I love them. I get the larger ones but not the "sheet size" ones. They are coming out real nice after bleaching. They even have colored ones in that brand that are bleachable (seriously) - I only use the white though.

They are $5 a piece. I really am a "snob" about most things for my home and I love them.

The Big Ones from Kohl's. I bought some of them over a year ago and they've been washed tons of times and hold up really well. On sale, I paid approx. $3.50 ea.

I like the Country Living Supra Soft Egyptian Cotton from K-Mart. They cost about $40 on sale for 2 - 30 x 58 bath towels, 2 hand towels & 2 washclothes. They are on sale right now. They also have the larger bath sheet 35 x 70 on sale for $12.

Tomorrow and Friday Macys has their "Hotel Collection" on sale. I got some when they were on sale a couple months ago and they have a good weight and pile without being overly thick and they come out of the wash nice and fluffy.

My favorite towels ever are the Laura Ashley Lifestyles from Kohl's. They're so soft, light, fluffy, and absorbent. I have them in white and they wash beautifully. They've got a 5-star rating on Kohls.com.

I agree with checking Costco out. The brand is Charisma and they are quite nice. They get fluffier each time they are washed, they are absorbent and hold their color. Highly recommend.

I had the same thing happen with Vera Wang and will never purchase that brand again ! Also any that have what feels like a partial microfiber look nice but don't dry you as fast as plain old cotton ones. I am glad I read this board as I was wondering if any of the Q linen- sheets or towels were worth it. My GF now only buys white towels from Wal mart as with 3 children you go through a lot of towels.

I am actually afraid of purchasing any colored towels now but my Vera's did that and I thought my DD was using a hair product that did it and she wasn't. So now I know I am not crazy or puzzled anymore - must be the brand. Too bad as I would have returned them but thought either DD or DH spilt bleach on them!

Any recommendations on sheets would be appreciated! I want no pilling but not satin either. I heard people had some issues with the "non wrinkle" sheets.

I have paid every price for towels from very high to low. The best I have found are at Wal-Mart The Better Homes and Garden brand. I recommend them and the bath towel is nice and fluffy and you can use it at least twice before it is so wet they need to be changhed and it seems to dry quickly in the bathroom. Give them a try.

Good Luck

I bought some colored bleachable ones at BBB. I think they were about $5. I'm very happy with them.

I have JC Penney towels that are over 15 years old. I am redoing the bath room so it is back for more towels. I like them and they do hold up

I don't like JCPenney ones or the cheaper (big ones) at Kohl's. I do like the Kohl's luxury collection. I used to buy a lot of bamboo towels - they absorb really well. Problem with that is that they do that when you launder them also so it seemed to use more energy to dry them, which defeated the purpose of saving energy and a resource.

Kohl's does have nice bath towels, and when on sale a good value. I'd also check out T J Maxx, if you have one in your area, as they usually have exceptionally well made beefy bath towels at a very good price. You may pay more, though no shredded edges, and moderate fading.
