It doesn’t matter how old your kids get, there is nothing like wrapping your arms around them with a nice soft towel when they get out of the pool. My little 8-year-old son is always ready to snuggle, but especially when he gets out of the cold water! Somehow, crawling up on Mom or Dad’s lawn chair in the sun is way more fun than staying in the pool and playing water games. I think these moments will stay with me forever, even as he and my daughter grow up.

For my daughter, the idea of a warm towel in the sun is something a little more like growing up. She wraps herself up like a little lady and walks around like she’s queen of the pool. As she continues to grow each day, I love seeing these little flashes of her future life as a woman and knowing I was there to enjoy every second along the way.

So what’s a great towel got to do with all of this? For some reason, the cheap versions you find in dollar stores and other discounted places don’t give you that same level of comfort. Thick, soft towels are more than just an investment–it’s a feeling of love and security you wrap your loved ones in every time you use them. These are memories you’re making and not just times when they need to dry off.

If you’re able to spend some time looking for just the right towels, they will be around for a long time and you won’t have to make another purchase again for a while. This is why shopping for towels is not something you should do on a without checking out your options. See what’s available, what fits in your budget and then go with the best you can afford. You’ll love the feeling they give you and your family alike!

The best bath towels are towels that are soft. They add to the pleasure of a bath or shower. However, not all towels feel good against the body and nice to the touch. What are 5 ways to get soft towels?

1. Wash your towels before the first use. If you choose material that is of the highest quality, this step may not be necessary.

2. Avoid fabric softeners. They leave a waxy residue which interferes with the quality and softness of the material.

3. Place your towels in the dryer after each wash. Hanging towels on the line typically does not create a soft result.

4. Choose top quality cotton, such as Egyptian or Supima. Avoid synthetic material, because this type of material is not as soft as good quality cotton. You will also find that towels, such as Egyptian cotton towels, get softer with each wash.

5. Choose heavier towels for softer towels. Once again, this is where quality matters.
