Everyone has a favourite bath towel. My partner has also been bored to tears by my endless ravings about the amazing Turkish towels, which he insists are not "real" towels. A good bath towel can make your day. However, a bad one can ruin your day or get you off to a slow start. You don't need to spend a lot to get a good one. You can find towels that are just as soft, as dry quickly, and as long-lasting as the pricier ones.
We did a deep dive into the worlds of affordable bath towels. However, not all cotton is equal. The prices for Egyptian cotton, Suppima, and organic cotton are typically higher than those of Turkish and linen towels. There are still budget-friendly towels available in these categories. However, the price of a linen towel will be much more expensive than the towel made from cotton.
Weighing. Weight is measured in grams per square meter (GSM). GSM is a measure of weight. Lightweight towels have a GSM between 300 and 400, while plush towels can go up to 700 to 900. Although it is not always true that higher GSMs translate into higher prices, it is something you should be aware of. Durability. The downside to bath towels that are cheaper is that they may not be made well and could fall apart within a year or so. This is not always true, but it's something to consider. You should research the brand's reputation, the materials used and the quality of reviews. You can prolong the life of your towels by not using fabric softeners, which will cause fibers to become less durable over time, and drying towels on a regular basis.
