    A couple of weekends ago I had to stay with my granddaughters while their mother was at the E. R. I showered them and found that my cats have better towels to sleep on than my granddaughters have to dry off with. I bought some new towels for their family and gave them to their parents for an anniversary gift. They loved it! They said towels are one of the things they just don't feel like they can spend money on with a family of six.

    My daughter and grandson lived with her dad and his wife for a little while. They have 5 foster kids. My daughter started using her beach towels for her and her son after showers because the towels at that house were literally in halves...I guess to make them go farther with all those kids...?

    I used to have hand me down towels then one year when I had some spare moolah, I bought some nice thick all white towels that I love. I can bleach them and everything!

    So, tell me what your towels are like.

    Damn, I always thought I over-analyzed everything, though bath towels are something I seem to have grossly overlooked.

    mine are pretty new., I have a pool so some of them are beach towels, and I have a big dog that likes to go out in the rain and needs dried off. I have a hawkeye red robe too. and a blue one.. But I like the red one, even tho blue is my favorite color.

    i dry off with a hand towel

    im not picky...ive always thought those huge things were a waste of money and just add uselessly to the amount of laundry

    My towels are years old but since i live alone they are in good shape. I love bath sheets for when I get out of the shower. I have long hair so use a large bath towel for my hair.

    When Grace (dog) comes in after a rainy walk I use some of the older towels to dry her off. Some of those towels are possibly 20 years old and my Mom gave me those when she got new towels.

    I guess you could say my towels are antique.

    I have one white bath towel that I bought in a department store when I moved into my new flat.I wash it about once a month.My flat-mate however has two really dirty towels that he leaves on the rail in the bathroom.I need to ask him to wash them.He also leaves dirty socks on the bathroom floor.He is however autistic so I give him a lot of leeway.He usually does whatever I ask him though.He's only 19.He's a really nice boy - just not the brightest spark.

    We have a bath towel exchange system in UK. All you do is hang your old worn out towel on next doors washing line and take a new one from the same line. Very easy and very cheap, just make sure its dark and your neighbour does not own a shotgun before using the exchange system.

    I have two towels, one medium sized purple one for my body and a large one for my hair (very thick and long hair). My toddler uses one that goes over her head and turns into a sort of poncho with a hood, she loves it. No idea what material they are, nothing fancy, they do their job!!

    My mom bought me really nice, fluffy Tommy Hilfiger towels as a house warning gift. Otherwise I would probably be using beach towels lol

    I have too many to know what are they all like....
    As long as they're in good condition, I'm good.

    This reminds me. A few years ago, the company had an audit. From the government tax office.

    The auditor said "Look, some of these business hotel expenses you're claiming... they're huge. There's no receipts for them. We think you're lying, and you weren't at these hotels"

    So I replied "Oh shut up dear. Ofcourse I'm not lying. If you don't believe me... Look - here are the bathtowels and ashtrays that I stole from them" :cool:

    Back on topic, most of mine are single colour - yellow, green, whatever. I just like big thick ones. But to be honest, apart from the ones stamped "Ritz Carlton" ;) etc, I dont think much about it..

    PS anyone noticed? In truth, hotel towels usually tend to be plain white, no logos these days.. : (

    i had this AMAZING towel for camping, it was really thin so it could fold up tiny and made out of some ultra absorbant material, dries you up completely just dabbed on the skin, i used it for ages as my general towel (and a sheet when it was too warm for a sleeping bag) , then i lost it at a festival. i want to buy another one now, it was so damn good.
