PROS

The fabric is remarkably soft, thick, and pleasant to the touch. It is far more durable than most 100% cotton bathroom towels. It is able to absorb far more liquid. The size will allow you to cover your entire body in this towel. 

CONS

Doesn't fit standard washing machines. 

OUR VERDICT

This Salbakos product is as luxury as bathroom towels get. It is VAT dyed, so it will maintain its vibrant color for years to come. The color selection is excellent, by the way, and the stitching job is just as great.

PROS

The towel weighs 820 grams per square meter. It allows the fabric to quickly absorb a lot of liquid. Incorporating densely woven loops of 2-ply yarns, the towel is soft and fine but with a tight weave, a weave that makes the whole thing strong and durable.

CONS

The colors may differ from the ones advertised. 

OUR VERDICT

Those who put an equal amount of stock into aesthetics and functionality could definitely benefit from a couple of these cotton bathroom towels. Plus, it is large enough to allow your average customer to wrap themselves up in it and wipe the head and body at the same time.

Comprised of 100% ringspun cotton, the fabric doesn't just give your skin a much softer feel but also keeps the towel intact for years to come. It is hypoallergenic, completely breathable, and particularly great for people with sensitive skin.

CONS

After some time, loose threads start to pop up. 

OUR VERDICT

Utopia Towels UT0314 gives you quick drying, ample coverage, and comfortable lounging options. It is easily the best thing for your body after a nice shower. The fact that the company offers a great choice of luxury colors doesn't hurt either.

Microfiber towels can absorb seven times their weight in liquid. These fibers are capable of removing 99% of bacteria on their own. The fabric dries about 3 times faster compared to cotton. It can be laundered and reused somewhere between 400 and 500 times.

CONS

The hems are passable at best. 

OUR VERDICT

What we have here is an excellent option for people who are looking for something more than just a bathroom towel. Both of these towels are as versatile as they come, perfect for sports, fitness, yoga, travel, and so much more.

You get 4 towels for the price of two. Each towel adds up to 30 inches in width and 54 inches in length, the size that will fit even the smallest washing machines with ease. That's also the size that makes them great beach towels. 

CONS

Not recommended to wash using bleach (possible discoloration). 

OUR VERDICT

Four is better than one, provided that the 4 in question aren't inferior to the one. Fortunately, they aren't. Each towel in this 4-pack from Cotton Craft is soft, snug, comfy, as well as rugged, strong, and durable, not to mention machine washable and dryable.

SALBAKOS SYNCHKG052540

Genuine Turkish Cotton

Not to sound presumptuous but, just like Germans with cars and French with wine, Turkish people know their way around fabrics. So those who are looking for a premium towel will, more often than not, opt for a Turkish towel and we certainly don't blame them for that. Take this one, for example.

Made of 100% genuine Turkish cotton, this model is as luxury as they come. The material is remarkably soft, thick, and pleasant to the touch. It is far more durable than most 100% cotton bathroom towels. Of course, since it is really thick, it takes a little bit more time to dry but that's a compromise most are willing to take considering just how much liquid it can absorb.

The size is a different story. Featuring 40" x 80" in overall dimensions, this is by no means a small model, even as far as oversized bath towels go. On one hand, you'll be able to cover practically your entire body with it. With a towel like that, it will take you far less time to make yourself nice and dry. That being said, the size also means that the model doesn't fit standard washing machines, so we would recommend checking these details first before you make the purchase.

Ultimately, this Salbakos product is as luxury as bathroom towels get. It is VAT dyed, so it will maintain its vibrant color for years to come. The color selection is excellent, by the way, and the stitching job is just as great.

Classic Piqué Borders

A thin towel might be acceptable for the kitchen or gym. But the bathroom is a different story. For the bathroom, you need one of the more absorbent models and that's exactly what this towel offers you.

For those who aren't familiar with the premise, the people in this business measure the thickness of a particular towel in grams per square meter. Your average towel scores somewhere between 400 and 500.

This one, however, weighs 820 grams per square meter. That means the towel is able to quickly absorb a lot of liquid, a lot more than most towels. Generally speaking, that would mean that it dries slower but that's not exactly the case here. Sure, it doesn't dry as quickly as kitchen towels but nor is it as slow as the majority of plush bath towels.

You won't be able to rip this model apart even if you wanted to. Incorporating densely woven loops of 2-ply yarns, the towel is soft and fine but with a tight weave, a weave that makes the whole thing strong and durable.

Lastly, designed with that classic piqué border, the towel also serves a decorative purpose and it does so as well as the next accessory.

Bottom line, those who put an equal amount of stock into aesthetics and functionality could definitely benefit from a couple of these cotton bathroom towels. Plus, it is large enough to allow your average customer to wrap themselves up in it and wipe the head and body at the same time.

Utopia Towels UT0314

Sensitive to Your Skin

Different people picture a utopia differently. The people behind this company, apparently, associate it with bathroom towels, to a seemingly large extent. Maybe your idea of a utopian ideal place doesn't include towels at all but, before you reach that place, you could definitely benefit from the Utopia Towels UT0314 model.

For the most part, there's nothing that much to it. With 35" x 70" in width and length, it is large enough to be practical and comfortable but not too large for your average washing machine.

Woven with 100% ringspun cotton, the final fabric doesn't just give your skin a much softer feel but also keeps the towel intact for years to come. It is hypoallergenic, completely breathable, really pleasant to the touch, and great for people with sensitive skin.

Just make sure to stray away from bleach, fabric softeners, and ironing. If you don't, you'll start seeing loose threads pop up soon enough.

The hems are double-locked-stitched, so it undergoes minimal disintegration after machine washing. Plus, it is heavy and thick enough, capable of absorbing a great amount of liquid, making it great for bathrooms.

In closing, Utopia Towels UT0314 gives you quick drying, ample coverage, and comfortable lounging options. It is easily the best thing for your body after a nice shower. The fact that the company offers a great choice of luxury colors doesn't hurt either.

JML Bath Towels

More Than Just a Bath Towel

With this entry, the folk at JML offer you a bit more bang for your buck than the previous listings in this review. For 20 bucks, they send you 2 high-quality bathroom towels, where most companies sell 1 for more or less the same price.

And it isn't like they compromise on the quality either, with the only exception being the subpar stitching. But, despite the mostly passable stitching, these are as quality towels as they come. And, in some aspects, these microfiber bath towels are even better than most of their peers.

The "better" part mostly stems from the 100% microfiber position. Unlike cotton, microfiber towels are able to absorb seven times their weight in liquid. These fibers are capable of removing 99% of bacteria on their own. The fabric dries about 3 times faster compared to cotton. It can be laundered and reused somewhere between 400 and 500 times, making it, again, considerably more durable than the cotton counterparts.

Last but not least, microfiber is a far less slippery material. That means you can use it as a fitness towel, beach towel, and even a yoga towel. Plus, the towels already come fitted with hanging loops, a nice little detail that for some reason isn't always present in other towels.

To put it differently, what we have here is an excellent option for people who are looking for something more than just a bathroom towel. Both towels are as versatile as towels get, perfect for sports, fitness, yoga, travel, and so much more.

Cotton Craft 73653

Four is Better than One

It doesn't take a genius to figure out why so many people choose this 4-pack from Cotton Craft. More often than not, a good bathroom towel will cost you somewhere around 20 bucks. With this pack, one towel will cost you just 8 bucks. That's practically the definition of value, at least in our book, provided these aren't subpar towels. And, long story short, they aren't.

Made of 100% ringspun cotton, they're as soft, snug, and comfy as the rest of them. The only issue you'll likely face with them is a discoloration issue. That said, stay away from bleach and you should be able to avoid it (it being the aforementioned issue). Each towel adds up to 30 inches in width and 54 inches in length, the size that will fit even the smallest washing machines with ease. That's also the size that makes them great beach towels.

Fitted with a nice Rayon band, these towels look more luxurious than just about any other product in the below 10 bucks price range. The available colors are very different but equally intense and vibrant. Featuring double-lock-stitched hems, the towels are just as rugged as they're soft.

To wrap it up, let's just say that 4 is better than one, provided that the 4 in question aren't inferior to the one. And, like we said earlier, they aren't. Each towel in this 4-pack from Cotton Craft is soft, snug, comfy, as well as rugged, strong, and durable, not to mention machine washable and dryable.

What Is a Bath Towel?

We don't have to sell you on bath towels, do we? We don't reckon we have to explain what it is and how to use one. Everybody knows what a towel is. You probably have a couple in your bathroom right now. The thing is, you have to replace those far more frequently than you think. Same with pillows, people don't really change towels as often as they should. And we definitely should do it more often, both for hygienic and aesthetic purposes.

The difference between an old subpar towel and a new good one can be day and night. A new towel dries quicker, it is far more pleasant to the touch, it is home to far fewer microbes/less bacteria, and it always looks better, elevating the appearance of your bathroom and your guest's opinion of you.

As a rule of thumb, the difference between most bath towels these days boils down to the difference in the material composition. Some prefer cotton, others stick with microfiber, both have their advantages and disadvantages too. After that, it's the size and the little things (like the stitching) but you should be able to figure those out.

Got yourself a new towel already? Great, now you can pick up a towel warmer or something like a new laundry basket.
