What Amazon Reviewers Say: “Very fluffy, very absorbent: These towels are reasonably large, fluffy, and absorbent. Very like hotel towels (which is why I got them; they even have that hotel towel smell). They’re not particularly lightweight, but that isn’t a minus to me. One towel arrived with malformed stitching. I sent a photo and short e-mail to their customer service, and they sent a new one with no hassle.”
The Best Beach Towels on Amazon: Ben Kaufman 100% Cotton Velour Towels
Oh, you wanted color. In a recent GQ guide to the best beach towels (miss u, summer), Amazon only placed one option: these colorful cotton velour towels. Priced at just $10 each, these oversized beach towels are made using fast-drying combed ring-spun cotton. If these towels are a bit too colorful for you, then we also like the brand’s striped beach towels.
What Amazon Reviewers Say: “Vibrant colors: Perfect heaviness, vibrant colors, great quality, now if only they would offer this in a 40 x 70 size…surprisingly not too much lint in dryer after first wash, that’s a good sign.”
The Best Bath Towel Set: Fabdreams 100% Organic Cotton Bath Towel Set
No, they’re not quite as soft as Brooklinen or Cozy Earth’s plush bath towels, but this towel set uses 100% certified organic cotton. The company also uses wind power and sustainable packaging. They towels are ever so slightly smaller than some other bath towels, but this six-piece set offers a strong upgrade over the dingy towels and washcloths in your bathroom right now—assuming you need the full kit.
What Amazon Reviewers Say: “I purchased these towels because they were organic and reasonably priced. Was not that happy when I received them—hoped for a thicker, softer towel—but they’ve worn well and have grown on me.”
The Best Hand Towels: White Classic Luxury White Hand Towels
If you only need new hand cloths, then dump these into your Amazon shopping cart without overthinking things. White Classic backs these towels with a two-year warranty, so you don’t have to worry about them falling apart in the wash. The company made this towel set from Egyptian cotton for a comfy feel, and thanks to the reasonable price, they’re an Amazon best seller. They also have an OEKO-TEX certification. We couldn’t find any GSM information, but the company makes similar towels listed with a 700 GSM.
What Amazon Reviewers Say: “A perfect set of towels for my 10 and 11 y/o boys’ bathroom. Instead of smearing their toothpaste-spit mess across the mirror with my good towels, I bought these ones…I was informed last night that they work great for cleaning football cleats, too! Who knew? 🤷🏻♀️”
