I am asking because I have seen on the TP that bleached are less expensive than unbleached... is there a particular reason, or just coincidence??Is the only difference between this two just their color??

which do you prefer??

I find unbleached slightly softer and noticibly fluffier (thicker). I don't know about absorbancy though. No time to do scientific tests.

I've never seen them listed w/ different prices, but I haven't looked on the TP. They are slightly different in size b/c the unbleached shrink up more, and they are softer.

I did an absorbancy test, unbleached are a bit more absorbant! Ditto on the softer and fluffier!

I have noticed that bleached lose their absorbancy faster than the unbleached in the long run.
