towels to buy that dry soft on a clothesline?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

It is time to buy some new towels, and I have seen some ads for 'quick drying' towels.  Does anyone have experience with what type of towels dry softer and fluffier after clothesline drying?  I know I can put vinegar in the rinse, but just based on the type/thickness/weave/whatever, what type of towel would be best?

I am switching all of our bath towels over to pestemal bath towels.  They are not thick and fluffy, but are highly absorbent and wash and dry with a great deal less energy required than more traditional towels. http://www.indigotraders.com/store.html  Here is one source, but you can google for others.

Thanks - those look really interesting, though more costly than I was imagining.

Do you know how well they wear?  It seems like, being thinner, they would wear through faster than typical towels.  Does anyone have any experience with how well they last?

I only have a couple now, but they really haven't worn at all in 3 years.  Because they dry so fast, you don't launder them as often as regular towels.

I bought these Quick Dry towels about a year ago and am very happy with them.  Every so often I get a get a few more when they go on sale.  =) 

 

HTH!
