Not one made of Asbestos?
Don't use fabric softener on towels, over time their absorbency will decline.
That's all I got.
You weigh 130 or 330, 330 takes a bigger better towel? On the other hand paper towels work good for 130. For the record, I weighed 126 in college.
"More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with."--D. Adams Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Oh yeah... I forgot to answer the question...
I have a white one. It works really well on me.
you are my hero in this thread
i have a leopard print towel, seems to work pretty good in all things towel like, just don't go around hitchhiking the galaxy with out one.
Micro-fiber. Dries my nethers in a jiffy.
Now I understand why I always hated to share towels with my wife and my secret lust for fresh towels.
Starting tomorrow ill demand a fresh clean towel every day!
In fact ill buy a set with my name engraved.
But, I must also say that I'm not into bathrobes... Except for the one I got in an hotel on turkey once.
At home? Or on the road?
Microfiber is great on the road, but a plush cotton terrycloth feels better to me, but only works at home due to bulk and drying time.
Microfiber - I like the REI house brand Multitowel, lite or regular, s-xxl sizes. Come with a hanging loop to dry.
PS: If you live in one of those places with high humidity - nothing works unless you've got refrigerated a/c.
Problem with microfiber and camping is that if you drop said towel on the grass (or it falls off the clothes line) you will spend the better part of the afternoon picking off leaves and debris. Just back from the Salem rally and I made a note to bring a proper terrycloth towel next year.
I have a few plush bath towels that don't seem to dry me as well as this thin old green one I inherited with the house. The bonus being that the green one also dries off faster, thus making it better for taking two showers a day.
So, yeah, I'm interested in what makes a 'better' towel better, and have no interest in the super plush luxury towels that are sold to such folks.
I just want good (dry me off quick, dry themselves fast) bath towels.
walmart. $4. i also get annoyed when the rest of my laundry is dry, and the towel is still wet. they last for a year or so.
My wife likes the big fluffy towels. When I go visit my sis she has th big fluffy towels. Feels like they are smothering me. I like my smaller shitty lightweight bath towels. Work just as good as the big ones.
