Tesco Bath Towel
Advantages: Good quality for a low price
Disadvantages: Quality does deteriorate over time
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.
Summary: Not bad
