The Best Bathroom Towels Share These 5 Qualities

Most people don't think twice about a towel's quality when they buy it. As a result, they end up paying for towels that don't last for more than six months when they start to deteriorate.

Thankfully, there are many affordable, long-lasting, high-quality towels on the market. You just need to keep your eye out for these five qualities that all the best, ethically made towels share:

1. Eco-Friendly

Purchasing an environmentally friendly towel is good for both you AND the planet. The majority of mass-produced towels are made using synthetically grown cotton, which uses a massive amount of pesticides and insecticides. The chemicals used in growing and treating conventional cotton weaken its fibres, causing most towels to wear out quickly.

That's why you should opt for eco-friendly towels that are made using 100% natural cotton. Natural cotton is ultra-absorbent, durable, and a fantastic sustainable alternative to other materials

2. 100% Cotton

This soft, strong, and ultra-absorbent material creates far better bathroom towels than other organic fibres and synthetic materials.

This is largely due to its long fibres being protected during its organic growing process as opposed to being sprayed and treated by toxic chemicals. Bath towels made using 100% natural cotton feel better, last longer, and are better for our planet.

3. Two-Ply

If you're looking to buy a towel that will last you for years to come, make sure it's two-ply. Two-ply towels use materials that are twisted and woven together like a braid, making them far more durable and long-lasting than the thinner single-ply towels. With a two-ply towel, you're getting far more value for your money.

4. Fade-Resistant

The best towels are fade-resistant. Towels that aren't are far more likely to bleed onto other fabrics when being washed, which can permanently damage your other belongings. They also tend to lose both their colour and quality after just a few months of use. Given how quickly cheap towels that aren't fade-resistant can wear out, fade-resistant towels are definitely worth the investment.

5. Chemical-Free

You should never purchase towels that were manufactured and treated with chemicals. They're bad for the planet and can cause mild to severe skin irritation. After using one of these chemical-laden towels, your skin may begin to react negatively, especially if you have sensitive skin or eczema.
