There’s nothing like wrapping yourself in a nice warm towel, hotel or spa style, after a nice, long, and refreshing shower. But, believe it or not there’s more to toweling off than you thought.

Most importantly experts advice not being fooled by the feel. They note that most towel manufacturers add softener to their final product so it feels soft on the shelves of your favourite store. But, just give it a few washings and that’s all likely to change.

· Lasting plushness means looking for 100% combined cotton products since these naturally attract water and can retain about 25 times their weight in the liquid. In addition, combined cotton means that the shorter threads have been removed, helping keep the towel strong and virtually pilly-free.

· Look for stitching that is thick featuring tightly packed loops. The tighter the loops, the more absorbancy you can expect. And, if you can see the base of the towel, put it back.

· Weigh out your options, by weighing the towel. Well, not literally but by picking up off the shelf. A quality towel should feel heavier than it looks.

· Look for double-turned edges with double stitching for extra durability, and to help prevent fraying and to give your towel a longer life.
