Bath towel recommendations

My bathroom towels are so old I am embarrassed to even calculate how long I have had them . It is time to replace them but I am not sure of a good quality brand (after all, I will probably want to keep them for years ). I know I don’t like microfiber. I thought about some from Kohl’s, but my sister bought some and she said they clogged up her dryer vent. Any recommendations? I am willing to do a splurge here!

I will be following this thread because I'm curious what PTers suggest, as I have not yet found bath towels that I like, regardless of cost. Believe it or not, I still have towels from 1969 , and although they are not pretty, they are so much more absorbent than any of the towels I have bought in the past three years.

I have these from Pottery Barn. They are on sale now for $21 for bath towels (big size, but not bath sheet). Free shipping too. I love them. They also have organic quick dry which are supposed to be very absorbent for the same price.

I like Hotel towels from Macy’s. I get the large bath size.

The very old ones are still going strong as problem solvers. When I moved and remodeled I wanted a different color. I love these, too. They’re on sale several times a year—don’t pay full price.

If you are fussy about towels like I am, buy 1 washcloth from each of the types you’re interested in and give them a test run.

Towels are important to me.

Better Homes and Gardens

I bought Better Homes and Gardens towels at Walmart believe it or not and they are holding up very well. I was not towel shopping there but say the colors and pattern that were perfect for my decor so I gave them a try.

I have also had good luck at Tuesday Morning with towels. Their prices are great! Sorry I do not remember a brand name.

I usually get Simply Vera bath towels from Kohl's only when they are marked 50% off AND I have a 30% coupon.

The Sam's Club Member's Mark Hotel Premier Collection towels are also VERY nice.

Peacock Alley
I love these towels!
Whenever I have overnight guests, they remark about how much they love them and ask where I purchased them.

You can find them online at Neiman Marcus, but of course I don't shop there!

I purchased mine at Tuesday Morning. Of course they are closeout items/last year's designs at this store, but of course it doesn't matter if you're buying towels.

Bath towels will regularly sell for about $45 and up but you can purchase one at Tuesday morning for $10-$15.

They also sell Peacock Alley brand bedding there. I have purchased bedding sets there for $100, that are regularly in the $300-$400 range.

I believe Tuesday Morning might be a brick and mortar store and not for online purchases, but I'm not sure. I'm lucky enough to have three of them within about 15 miles of my home, all in different directions! It's sort of a hit and miss store, just like TJ Maxx would be!

I'm in love with Turkish towels. They aren't terry cloth...it's a fine weave that does well with a line dry (terry cloth gets crunchy if not in a dryer). They last FOREVER!

These are the ones I bought (at least 10 years ago!)

I’ve gotten mine from Costco for the last 20 years. Reasonably priced and they last under quite a bit of wear and tear with my family.

Penny’s is also a good bet. I used to buy them when they’d have their sales.

I just replaced mine!
I like cotton towels. I feel like they actually get me dry.

I just got Martha Stewart ones from Macy’s. They go on sale and I scoop them up:

I have these as well for the kids from Target:

We love the towels we have gotten from Land's End home. They come in a variety of colors and hold up well.

I used to buy all my towels from J C Penney, but the last ones I got were not good quality. I bought my current towels at Target and they're great. reasonably priced, very absorbent, and they are holding up well.
