Default Thick, reasonably priced bath towels?

Our towels are in dismal repair. Id like to get decent towels without spending a ton.

Anyone have luck w a specific store/brand?

I have had great luck with Land's End 100% cotton towels. I stalk their clearance section for discontinued colors and it comes out to around $10/towel IIRC (maybe it's more - it's been a few years since I ordered some).

I found I prefer thin ones because they dry faster in our humid environment, so I love Turkish towels. But for thicker ones, ime, the best are Ralph Lauren (found at TJ Maxx type stores sometimes at a decent price) or The JC Penney Towel.

A few years ago I replaced all our bath towels. I went with Apt 9 brand from kohls. Combining sales with coupon codes there I got them incredibly affordable and we've been very happy with them.

JC Penney towels are great!

I like bath sheets though and have found good ones at Costco.

I got new ones at Walmart. They have these thick ridges on them and they’ve held up well. I think they were around $8?

Default Re: Thick, reasonably priced bath towels?

I like the quick dry ones from Dollar General, but they might not be as thick as you're thinking. They have more of a wavy texturing in lieu of thickness.

Default Re: Thick, reasonably priced bath towels?

Thank you all. Truth is our towels are horribly threadbare so anything would be an improvement

It’s the first time we’ve considered replacing them cuz of our finances seems like it’s not a necessity . Since posting this, we learned the brakes on dh’s car need replacing so now I’m probably asking for towels for Christmas. If not, at least I have good ideas where I can buy them for the future.

I saw those and didn't think I'd like them. Maybe I'll try one. I bought two white towels at Walmart a few days ago for $5 each. Figured it would allow me to turn two dingy white towels into rags until I get a couple nicer towels.

I use white because my Proactiv sometimes bleaches out colored towels.

I am asking for new towels for Christmas too. I just had my van breaks done last week. I know the money pain.

Do what I did and treat yourself to 2 new cheap towels in the meantime.

Default Re: Thick, reasonably priced bath towels?

We get the $3.97 towels at wal-mart. We use the laundromat right now and the machines are horrible on clothes and towels. So I looked for something super soft that dries quickly. They fit the bill and last.

Default Re: Thick, reasonably priced bath towels?

I used my $5 towel from Walmart last night. It was nice to have a new towel. Go get yourself 2.

The weird thing is that the bath towel dried me well but the hand towel I bought doesn't seem to dry my hands well.

I'm asking for towels for Christmas.

Default Re: Thick, reasonably priced bath towels?

No point in only getting 2 as I have 3 teens which means clean dry towels are rare. And honestly it’s dh and a child who complain about towels. Don’t bother me at all . I just dry off and put on my robe. Threadbare doesn’t bother me personally.

I have extra pay Coming after I work thanksgiving since I work 20 hours over the two holiday days (we get time and a half). Hopefully that will pay for st nick and towels I will probably go to Walmart and maybe next year buy better ones if I am not thrilled
