      a good towel at a great price

      I added a sky blue / Turquoise new bath towel from Tesco recently as I was going around. I tend to keep towels a long time and they get a bit thin and tired looking, which doesn't really bother me but they also are not very useful for drying either. One old one I have is just used to go on the floor and has hardly any toweling left on it. This means that when the other one is in the wash and one gets wet or goes missing, I am left using my toweling dressing gown or tea towel's ! I though a new towel would be okay and at £5 for a thick marine blue ish towel that matches my colour scheme it was an impulse buy, but I knew I needed it really. USAGE This towel suits me as a Pisces, as it is a sea/ fish / marine type colour, and I have a lot of dolphins and fish type things scattered around. It is a good thick towel especially for only £5. This towel is a bath towel 70 by 127 cm and is big enough for me to use when I am getting dried. I tend to use two or three towels though, I don't know if that is normal or not, but this is a good thick one that takes most of the water. At £5 it is good value and I don't have to worry about it wearing out as I can afford to replace this in a couple of years. The others I had for 15 years plus and were very thin. I may yet buy another smaller one of these as the other one I have is old and always wet.

      Tesco Bath Towel

      I am slowly starting to replace all my old towels in the house and I have been buying them from Tesco as I think they are excellent quality towels for the money and they also come in a really nice selection of colours. You can buy the towels from Tesco in bails but I have just been buying myself one a week for a few weeks trying to stock up. I am mainly interested in the larger bath towels anyway rather than the smaller ones as these as the towels I use most often. The bath towels are priced at £5 each. They come in some lovely colours. I thought when I started buying them I would just go for white but the coloured ones aren't lurid colours and just make a nice change from white everywhere. They are a really good size and are perfect for wrapping around your body and drying off. They are made from 100% cotton and actually feel more luxurious than you might think given that they are from Tesco and cost £5. They are thick and fluffy and they wash really well too. The colours don't run and fade and they don't come out all stiff and scratchy either. As long as I put some fabric conditioner in with them they come out just as soft and fluffy as they went in. They also can be put in the tumble drier without worrying about shrinking them. Absorbency is really good with the towels and the dry me no problem and as well as being absorbent they also don't tend to get absolutely drenched from just rubbing my hair with them unlike some other towels. I can get away with drying my body and then also using the towel on my hair if I want before it starts to feel too wet. If you are looking for some nice towels to brighten up your bathroom then you can't go wrong with these as they are really good for the money and feel much more luxurious than the Tesco branding would have you believe.

        Thanks for Reading :)

        ==PRICE== I purchased these from the bath household aisle at my local Tesco supermarket. I bought a couple of Tesco Bath towels for around £5.00 each. I was originally going to go and do my shopping at my local Asda supermarket and buy some towels from their, however due to my urge for krispy krèmes I decided to go to Tesco instead and buy the bath towels from there. I think the prices difference between Asda and Tesco bath towels are pretty much the same, so I didn't mind buying from either stores. ==DESIGN== When I was looking for the towels, I was pleased to see that there were a nice range of colours to choose from. There were the standard white colours available as well as the black, purple, grey and the more eye catching raspberry, orange, lime green colours. I decided to get one of the standard white colour and couple of the brighter colours such as raspberry and orange. The choice of colours are a welcome change to the boring plain colours, and also a great added factor when looking for colours to match the colour scheme of bathrooms; I was however not that concerned about matching the colour of the towel to my bathroom colour scheme, but I am sure there are customers that would be. ==MY EXPERINCE== The towels are nice a soft to the touch and are made from 100% cotton, which is always something I look for when buying towels. The towels are shaped in the regular rectangular shape, and are identical to most bath towel when it comes to appearance. I also found that unlike many other towels that I have bought in the past, these still remained soft after a number of washes. The colour of the towels also remained vibrant after a couple of washes, but after more washes I did notice the raspberry colour began to fade. The towels are machine washable and can also be tumbled dried. The towels are also nice and gentle on the skin even after a few washes; they are thick and easily absorb the water from the skin, which is definitely a good sign of a quality towel! They are also large enough (L127 x W70 cm) to easily dry the whole body after a shower, and can easily be wrapped around the body as well. ==VERDICT== Overall Tesco bath towels are made of great quality 100% cotton, that are large, soft and highly absorbent. The towels are also long lasting, and remain soft after a number of washes, and have a nice range of colours to choose from for a reasonable price. Therefore Tesco Bath Towels are highly recommended.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An excellent everyday towel

        When we renovated our bathroom recently, it was up to me to decide on the new colour scheme. Having always loved neutral shades we decided on a cream colour scheme with accents of plum and pale green. One way in which I intended to accent our bathroom was through our towels which I hoped that by hanging on our new towel rail would look colourful against the feature plum wall. However, being that I had blown our budget on the fixtures and fittings I hoped to find some reasonably priced towels that would be colourful and look the part. Popping into Tesco a couple of months ago, I came across their range of towels and so picked up four, two in the hand sized towel and two in the bath towel. Browsing through the numbers of towels available in my local Tesco, I was amazed at the variety of colours in the range. For classic whites and beiges, to blues and greens to more vibrant colours like raspberry and orange, there really is a towel for everyone. Having green and plum influences in our bathroom, I picked up two hand towels in the sage colour which is a light green and two bath towels in the aubergine. Both options were standard in size with the hand towel measuring in at 50cm by 90cm and the bath towel being 70cm by 127cm. The towels are made from 100% cotton and this gives them quite a thick and soft feel. The towels are finished with a band of stitching on each one giving a nice vertical line of detail and adding in my opinion a touch of quality to what is otherwise quite a cheap towel. Whilst I did initially hand my towels on the towel rack for show purposes only (I think I had a Hyacinth Bucket moment), they did after a couple of weeks get used and are now in use daily. The feel of these towels is soft against my skin and the size means that they are more than adequate for wrapping up in when I get out of the bath. The towels were not that absorbent when we first used them, however a couple of washes later and they were fine in wiping off the water when we got out of the bath. I wash my towels weekly, as I do with my bedding, and I have found that these towels retain their colour after washing and have not shown any signs of fading just yet. In addition, I do prefer to tumble dry towels as I find that it enhances their fluffy feel, and these towels have been fine in the tumble drier and come out feeling soft and fluffy. One thing I would add is that due to my love of ironing everything in our house, I have noticed that the towel fibres or 'hairs' have begun to spread out in different directions without any particular pattern and so they don't look as neat on the rail as they did at first, however this is only a minor niggle. These towels are available from Tesco and can be seen in most larger stores. You should expect to pay around £5 for a bath towel and £4 for a hand towel which makes these towels incredibly good value for money in my opinion. These towels score a great four stars from me, and I will be buying them again when I feel that my current ones need replacing! I hope this review has been of some help and thanks for reading! x

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          good value towels

          I find that I tend to buy new bath towels quite regularly as I like to dry mine in the tumble dryer as this keeps them soft. The downside to this is that they do become quite thin quite quickly and thus need replacing fairly regularly. This doesn't bother me too much as I like to keep the bathroom fresh and perhaps change the colour around a bit. However, it does mean that I prefer to buy towels at a reasonable price rather than more expensive ones. The towels come in a variety of different colours and matching hand towel and face cloths can be purchased too - so you can get a full set. I purchased four bath towels in taupe which were £8 at full price but reduced to £4 in the sale. These were slightly more expensive at full price than a lot of the towels at Tesco which were £5 at full price - this is probably because they had a little more detailing on them (three linear stripes rather than the standard one). Even at full price, I felt they were good value so at half price I was very pleased with the buy! They are a decent size - standard bath towel size - and felt soft and of good quality. They were perhaps a little thinner than some towels that I have previously purchased but still felt suitably thick to be absorbent and to last a decent length of time. They are very fluffy on first purchase so I definitely recommend washing before first use. When using, the towels feel soft and absorbent. They are of a good quality - much better than I expected for the price paid. They do dry you off after a bath/shower very well without becoming too damp. They also wash up reasonably well and the colour is good - it hasn't faded with washing at all. They also dry up well in the tumble dryer and, whilst they are becoming a bit thinner, they are lasting me a decent length of time - I have had these for over 6 months now. Overall I would definitely recommend these towels - they are priced very reasonable and are a decent quality too. They are so many colours available that you are bound to find a shade you like.

          Great towels for students!

          The F&F Basics Tesco Bath Towels were the first towels I bought after moving into student accommodation last year. I chose the turquoise ones as everything in my room is blue, and they have not faded after being washed at all, still lovely and bright. I wash them at 40 degrees They are not the softest of towels, but are not bad and certainly do the job. Using fabric conditioner would probably help keep them soft, and drying out on a washing line. I dry them on a line in my room and they dont take long to try. There is no sign of fraying on the towels, which usually happens with cheap towels. My long, thick hair dries quite quickly when wrung and left in a towel-turban using these towels. The dimensions of the bath towel are approx. 70cm x 120cm which is average size for a bath towel. They are made of cotton, with a weight of 530gsm and the label says made in Pakistan. For a price of only £5 each, they are good value and I will certainly be buying more for when I have guests in the summer.

            A nice budget towel

            I needed to buy some new towels last year as we had had the majority of our towels since we got our first house and they were pretty worn. I couldn't afford too much and so just bought a couple to keep us going from Tesco. The Tesco range of towels come in the usual sizes of bath sheets, bath towels, hand towels and face cloths, the prices obviously depend on which size you buy. The towels are available in loads of different colours too and our store literally has a full side of the homeware department just for towels alone and the display looks fantastic with all the colours. I personally chose to buy a couple of cream bath towels as they are the best size for both children and adults in my opinion and they only cost me £4 each which seems a pretty decent price from towels I looked at in different places. The towels are all the same price regardless of colour which I think is brilliant as a lot of the towels I looked at I found the white and the cream were cheaper than the colours. The towel is of normal bath towel size which means it is big enough to wrap your hair, wrap tour children and even wrap your whole body although it doesn't reach too far down your leg. The towels are really soft to the touch which is a must for towels in my opinion afterall who wants to get dried on a rough towel. The towels wash fantastically although they take quite a while to dry so I tend to dry them in the tumble drier if I can't get them out on the line, the dry in the tumbler really well and still come out nice and soft even now after I have been using them for a few months. The towels are rectangular and even after many washes they have retained their shape perfectly. The towels are great quality, they are a fantastic price and they are really durable too, I am happy to use these myself and also happy to use them on my children too. Myself and my eldest daughter have eczema on and off and these towels don't irritate the skin at all, I give these towels 5 out of 5 for what I paid.

              Great everyday towel at a great price

              I buy a ton of stuff from Tesco Home ware. I will often pop into Tesco Extra on my way home from work, intending only to buy a pint of milk, a loaf of bread and possibly a bar of chocolate and I end up wandering about for ages. I convince myself I 'need' things when in actual fact I don't really, and that's how I end up with a lot of stuff. Don't get me wrong, it's usually all great quality and the stuff I buy is value for money, but it's not that I actually really needed any more bath towels when I bought these ones from Tescos. I have a downstairs loo, an upstairs bathroom and a small en-suite and each room has a different colour scheme so I tend to buy colours to match each bathroom rather than buying plain white ones. When I spotted some Tesco bath towels at only £4 each it was just to hard to resist. The choice of colours was huge and I ended up buying one for each of the two upstairs loos in dark red and the other one in cream. I also bought two hand towels in green for the downstairs loo at the same time. These towels are great as a value everyday towel. They are not as good as my 100% Egyptian cotton towels but for £4 they are a real bargain. I always wash my towels before use them for the first time and for the first few uses, like any other towel really they are not great at being very absorbent. Also, when these towels are very new, a lot of the fabric comes off on damp skin and when I used the red one for the first time I kept having to pull off bits of raspberry red fabric off my skin all night and it looked like I was covered in small blood blisters. However, after a few turns around the washing machine and a few goes in the tumble dryer, these towels work just as good as any of the more expensive ones I use. They are quite thick and measure 128cm x 70cm, so obviously they are not as large as a bath sheet but also not as small as a hand towel either. They are wide enough to wrap right round my hubby when he gets out of the bath or shower, and as he's not a particularly small man, this shows just how large the towels actually are. They wash really well and I always like to tumble dry them as I feel it makes them fluffier and more absorbent. The colours are bold and quite deep though they do retain their colour after many washes. The dark green one I have is still as dark now despite several washes. They increase in absorbency once they've had a few washes and it looks to me as though they are going to last for ages. Certainly for only £4 they are a real bargain. Overall, I'm really delighted with both the price and the quality of these towels and they give my M&S ones a good run for their money any day of the week. Highly recommended.

                A very good buy from Tesco that offers decent quality at a decent price!

                I own a towel bale I bought last year from Argos from the colour match range. I never did like them much quality wise but did like the colour option in the funky fuschia colour I bought them in and they served me and my guests ok although had faded rather alot and rather quickly after buying them too I may add. However I wasn't going to buy anymore, I meant they did the job for now however with moving soon into a new flat, like many people moving I wanted some new towels to place in my new bathroom! However I am on a tight budget with so much to purchase and so have simply been keeping my eyes open and snapping up deals as I go and so when I spotted these bath towels costing only £4.00 each I bought myself a couple of them from my local Tesco store with keeping them stored till I moved into my new flat in mind however as I am staying at my mums I decided to use them so I had my own towels. These are available in Orange, Mint, Aubergine, Red, Dark Natural, Aqua, Raspberry Silver, Navy, Denim, Black, Coral, Cream, Royal, Blue, Pink, Sea Green, Lime, White, Grey, Taupe, Electric Blue, Turquoise and Amber so as you can see there is alot of choice on the colour front of things and they all cost £4.00 which by the appearance and feel of them I thought was really, really good! I bought mine in the cream option only because I wanted a change from a darker colour. I did think these are gonna get grotty looking quick but then thought for under a fiver each why not get them if I wanted them? It wasn't gonna break the bank to replace them anyway! The Bath Towel: Not to be confused with a bath sheet this is smaller than that coming in at 127cm by 70cm. As I have already mentioned mine is cream and colour and that is not a gone off white colour but a light cream shade that is really nice and its made from cotton and feel like terry toweling, but softer. They are not majorly or overly thick but think enough to be absorbent and soft on the skin when in use and of course are suitable for washing in the washing machine and for tumble drying. Appearance wise they do look really nice, are nicely finished and even after washing them and drying them often as I am really fussy they have kept shape and not gone thin on me and of course with this light colour option I haven't had any colour fade at all. They are are of a good oblong size though I suggest that if you want one that wraps around most bodies you should go for the sheet but at £4.00 each these get the thumbs up from me. They may be rather cheap to buy but they are of good quality however if you are used to Egyptian cotton towels and towels like Christie towels which are rather expensive you are going to see the quality difference to be honest but they do for me and I will happily repurchase these, in the same colour again! Only available from Tesco. This review is also posted on Ciao under this same username.

                A good quality towel at a decent price.

                On my last visit to England I decided to pop into Tescos and purchase myself a cheap bath towel as I like to travel with minimal stuff in my case as I always end up buying loads of stuff that takes up all the room in the case for the return trip. I like my towels to be quite thick and have a bit of substance and this Tesco bath towel at three pounds fifty was a really good buy for me. The normal price is around five pounds I believe but I got it on a special offer. This towel is not too thick but has that lovely soft terry towel feel, which possibly makes it seem thicker than it actually is. I purchased a red one being the Gooner that I am, which also made me feel at home as most of my towels back in Holland are red. I find that some thick towels get too heavy when they are wet, which makes them cumbersome and irritating to use. This towel, as I said, is not too thick and so it doesn't absorb too much water or get too difficult to handle. It dried me quite well and felt soft to the skin. It was also a very adequate size as it was neither too hard to handle or too small to get a good coverage area when drying myself off. It does absorb enough water to leave you feeling dry however, so Tescos have got the thickness and absorbency of the towel just right. The towel is made from cotton and the texture is lovely and soft and it has stayed that way over the last six months as I decided to take the towel back home with me when I returned to the Netherlands as I liked it so much. It has not frayed in any way or thinned out too much in any areas of the towel. The towel washes without any problems on a suitable heat and although I always put like with like; i.e.: towels with towels, I wouldn't see any problem with washing this towel with other coloured products. I like to hang my washing out to dry but in the winter months I use either a clothes horse or my tumble dryer. The towel is perfectly OK being dried in the tumble dryer and always comes out nice and fluffy and warm and smells wonderful as I use a nice fabric conditioner when I wash it. I usually wash a new towel before use to get rid of that cloying shop kept shelf smell, but as I was obviously staying in a hotel in another country I wasn't able to do this. The new smell wasn't actually too bad on this occasion but I do prefer to wash a new towel before use. If you want a nice good quality towel that doesn't cost the earth then the Tescos bath towel is not a bad purchase and I would recommend it to anyone. I do not shop at Tescos as a rule and I am not a big fan of the shop but this towel is a good buy. ©Lee Billingham

                  Very good quality for such a small budget.

                  I don't own this towel by choice. I didn't research into the best towel I could find and nor did I wander into Tesco and make an impulse buy for this towel. I have plenty of fluffy towels. All of which were well researched before purchased because I was fed up with scratchy towels. So how did I come to own a Tesco bath towel? A budget airline is the reason why I have this towel. I met a friend prior to her flight out of England. She feared she was over the baggage allowed. Correction, she categorically knew that she was over the limit. Out of her luggage came a whole number of possessions, right there amongst the rushing commuters and asthma-inducing smokers, came out clothes, of various sorts, and finally the Tesco towel. After deciding that she couldn't afford to post them back to herself I thought I'd better offer to look after these items for her. As I turned out she never asked for them back despite my reminders. I gave up asking her to take her things back and as she lives a long distance from me the towel has stayed in my possession. So this is why I have a Tesco bath towel! The material is one hundred per cent cotton and apparently only cost a few pounds so already I'm impressed. Cotton is good for towelling as it makes them soft and highly absorbent. This towel comes in a variety of colours but my friend chose orange. There's no way I'd ever choose this colour when buying towels for the house though I have done for the beach. It's all right but it doesn't suit my colour scheme. The towel is approximately one hundred and twenty by thirty-six centimetres. This covers me very nicely though I do prefer my bath sheets which are made of organic Egyptian cotton and well and truly cover my body with towel to spare. However, I've no complaints about this towel. It's reasonably thick and soft against my body even after several washes. The colour does not run. I mostly use a thirty degree wash as it is better for the planet. Don't forget this towel is second-hand to me so it is doing very well. It also dries very quickly after I've dried my body whereas I've found towels in the past have remained wet. For free, I can't go wrong, but even those spending a few pounds on this will be happy with the quality. I am left wondering if I really need to spend so much more on my quality towels. The only real bonus to spending more is the larger size of bath sheets and that mine are organic, meaning I've made purchases that should be kinder to our environment. Overall, I find these are some of the best quality towels that can be found on a lower budget. I highly recommend them for value for money soft and durable towels. Go on, towel down with Tesco!

                  Tesco bath towels

                  I am quite fussy about my bath towels. I like them to be soft and fluffy, large and more importantly go with the colour scheme in my bathroom/bedroom. I was surprised then that I ended up with bath towels from Tesco's as they were very cheap and I didn't think they would be as good as ones I could find in John Lewis or the like but I was surprised as these are really nice towels and more importantly lasted well too. I initially bought them from Tesco as they had the colour I was looking for. I have these towels in the colour jade which I would actually describe as a sort of Tiffany blue colour or a duck egg colour. This goes with the colour scheme of my bedroom so they are perfect towels for my en suite bathroom. They have lots of different colours available, white, red, blue etc so I think you could match them to pretty much whatever colour scheme you had. I'm really impressed with the size of these towels. I am able to wrap it fully around myself and then tuck it in at the top of my chest so it stays there. It covers from there to about my knees so I find it quite big width and length ways too. I love big towels that you can snuggle up and be cozy in and this definitely allows that. The towel is absorbent too and good at drying after a shower or bath. They are made from cotton terry towel which is known to have excellent absorbency. Even though these towels are soft they are not over soft. I find with some luxury towels that they are too soft and don't dry you properly as they just move the moisture on your skin around and don't soak it up. These towels are great because they feel extra soft against the skin but are great at drying too. They are fairly plain towels apart from a pressed strip in it around the bottom a little way up on the towel. I've probably had these for about a year now and they are wearing very well, they are not threadbare or scratchy and look almost as good as new still. I wash them at 30 degrees and had no problem with the colour running or anything like that in the beginning. I don't add fabric softener as I read somewhere that softener takes away the softness from towels so I wash it without but they still come out nice and bouncy and soft. I don't dry them in the tumble dryer either as I found this shrinks towels in the past so I either dry them outside in the summer or over the radiators in the house. Each bath towel cost me less than £5 which in my mind is an absolute bargain. I bought four so when two are in the wash we have two spare to use. Great bargain, great towels.

                  Not bad

                  I bought a set of these bath towels originally to use on holiday as they were so cheap that I was not too bothered if they needed to be dumped at the end of the holiday to make room for other items or iof they got wrecked by the sand as they were on a special offer whereby you got 4 for £12 which was a real bargain and they felt nice and soft in the store. There were a number of colours to choose from and I opted for a dark blue colour as I reckoned it would not show up any marks towards the end of the holiday as I had no plans to take them to a laundry while on holiday. The colour is a nice deep blue and has not faded at all despite numerous washes. The towels themselves are nice and soft feeling however that softness has declined a little over time as they have been through the wash however they are still very good at absorbing moisture and drying my body. They are also effective when it comes to drying my hair and they do not become too wet as the absorbancy is very good. One of the reasons that I bought these, apart from the price, was the fact that they are quite thick and this gives a nice soft feel on my skin, something that is not only important for me but also for my young daughters skin which can be very sensitive. The fibres are nice and long and I have been very surprised at how well they perform, on holiday they coped with my little one constantly being in and out of the water. There has been some deterioration of the quality over time and they are not quite as soft as they were when first purchased but I guess given the price I cannot expect too much by way of longevity. They do not need any special washing process, I tend to wash towles seperately anyway and certainly for the first couple of washes given their dark colour I washed these seperately just in case the colour ran but that does not seem to have been a problem. For the price these are a great bargain given the better than expected quality.

                    Good value bath towels from Tesco..

                    I have been married for a little over two years now and my husband and myself were very fortunate to receive some beautiful gifts and presents at the time of our wedding. One lovely gift was received from friends of my mum, who had thoughtfully given us two bath towels alongside a pretty candle holder. All three items were from Tesco. I have used the two bath towels since they were received, and have found them to be of a reasonable enough quality throughout their use that I really had no hesitation in purchasing two small hand towels from my local (gigantic) Tesco store earlier this year, mainly because my experiences of using the Tesco Bath Towels was more than adequate for use in my household. The two Bath Towels that we received as a gift are white in colour, and I do have to confess that this would never be my first choice as I prefer coloured towels that co-ordinate and match with the rest of the accessories in my bathroom. I had no real desire to exchange the white towels for another colour when we received them however, and of course white could never really be described as being the most offensive colour. Our towels were a gift of course, but I know from shopping in my local Tesco Store's Homeware Department that the Tesco Bath Towels cost in the region of £4.50, as @ the time of writing (December 2012). There is a selection of colours to choose from, both in store in larger Tesco stores, as well as on their website which is at www.tesco.com, although postage costs may apply if you are purchasing online. The colours range from blues such as sky blue, navy and aqua to deeper shades such as red, purple and orange. This selection allows for a great choice and variety, in colours to suit most homes, I would have thought. The Tesco Bath Towels I own have never let me down in terms of absorbency, which is probably down to the quality of the materials used. They are made from Cotton, in a sort of 'Terry' type fabric that feels extremely soft and is of course completely absorbent. I have used cheaply-branded towels before and found that they performed rather poorly in terms of coping with moisture, becoming 'soaked' far too easily which rendered them rather useless of course, given their intended purpose! The Tesco Bath Towels, in comparison, have no such flaw to their quality and I really have no complaints in terms of their ability to dry either body or hair effectively. The towels are surprisingly thick - only a surprise, because of their purchase price - and this gives them a soft and delicate feel to them that is very welcome on my delicate, sensitive skin. I have found that this thickness has deteriorated slightly with age, but in my experience this is what happens with most brands of Bath Towel over time. I have found too that even though the Tesco Bath Towels are thick enough for their requirements, there is no overly 'heavy' feel to be found when using them, that would most definitely be off-putting for me. This is something I have found with other towels that are luxuriously thick and the extra weight just makes them feel more cumbersome for me to use, probably as a result of my ill health and the fatigue I suffer from. It is true to say that the Tesco Bath Towels are not the most luxuriously thick I have ever used, but it is also true to say that their thickness is adequate, and this makes them easier and more pleasant for me to use as a result. Washing the towels is extremely easy to do, and I have never encountered any difficulties from doing so. The towels can be washed with a whole host of similar items, in my experience, such as flannels, and they always feel soft and fluffy after washing. I do find, however, that adding a little softening agent to the dispenser drawer of my washing machine is very beneficial to most bath towels, the Tesco ones included, and this allows the fibres to take on an even softer quality that I find most agreeable. I'm surprised at how white the Tesco Bath Towels have remained, even though they have been used in my household on and off for approximately two years now. True, the once 'pristine' brightness that the towels' hue contained is rather diminished, but they have not taken on that familiar 'grey' shade that is the usual fate of white laundry that is of a poor quality. This is further evidence to me of the Tesco Towels being of a fairly high quality, and I don't have any complaints at all in this regard. The towels dry easily, and I have popped them into my tumble drier on a handful of occasions, without incident. I tend to dry the majority of my laundry by hanging it up and only use my tumble drier when necessary, but I feel confident enough in the towels' quality to recommend them for this practice. I really don't have anything negative to report about the Tesco Bath Towels and do feel they are a fairly worthwhile purchase. I would buy them again, particularly as their purchase price represents excellent value for money in my opinion. They are of a surprisingly good quality and certainly better than alternative towels I have used before that are something of a waste of time. For the reasons outlined in this review, the Tesco Bath Towels come with my full recommendation, together with full marks in the Dooyoo product rating score.

                      They feel soft and quality, they absorb well and have lasted long enough to be classed as a good buy

                      What Is The Product Towels made by Tesco, they are 100% cotton and come in different colours. They are suitable for machine washing and can be put in the tumble dryer. My Opinion & Experience I have had these a while, I can't remember how long exactly but must be well over a year. In that time I have washed and dried them many times and they have lasted well, very well in fact. I mainly dry outside but have used the tumble dryer from time to time on the towels and they have had no problems from this. They are yet to fall apart at all and with the use of some fabric softener are as soft as they have ever been. They come in different colours and I own white and blue ones. For the price I paid at Tesco they have been brilliant, they feel quality and are so soft on the skin, after a bath they absorb the water very quickly and are indeed quite cosy. In terms of size they a bit shorter than some other towels I have but are still more than big enough to wrap around myself, they are quite thick. In Summary I would recommend these towels, they feel soft and quality, they absorb well and have lasted long enough to be classed as a good buy, especially at the price I paid for them at Tesco.
