I bought them from www.brylanehome.com and am still thrilled. They are soft and fluffy - I wash them with my regular detergent and throw them in the dryer. I don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets.
You can check online and they always have coupons.. just do a coupon search and you will find them. They are very reasonably priced.
I will say that I think these are going to need to be replaced more often. The RL ones I have are still perfectly fine after 7 years but aren't as soft. These seem to be wearing just a bit morebut seem to stay slightly softer --- but for the price you can't beat them.
If it looks like I'm trying to pick a fight... I'm not, I'm rarely that obvious.
We got some VERY nice ones for a wedding present. We hung them up in our bathroom to make it look nice but they don't get used.
I was trying to deodorize the toilet rug and the dog's blanket once, so I put them through a short wash cycle with vinegar instead of detergent. Then I did a regular cycle with detergent. They came out cleaner and fluffier than they'd been in ages, and there was no lint on them. I don't think I knew how linty they were until it was all gone. Pretty amazing.
So if you've got old bath towels you can probably restore them a bit by washing them in some vinegar. I add a quart or more to a large load of rugs/towels/rags.
