The towels arrived

Guess which are the new towels. We have kept the old ones for guests. They are not even covering everything with fluff. The bath towels were $25 each from Myer, normally $40, and the bathmats and hand towels similarly discounted. We are happy. The towels are thick, soft and absorbent.

  2. When I get home from my trip, I know I will relish the luxury of my towels at home. As I am walking, I will only take one of those horrid travel towels in my pack. But ahhhhhh part of the joy of the homecoming will be the towels!

  3. Aha! So you fold in threes like my daughters..still just fold in twos...what does that mean do you reckon? Am I "normal" or is folding in threes something to worry about ???

  4. Fen, the grey and the pale blue. See how much higher they sit because they are new and thick.

    KN, it my own water wasting shower that I relish when I return home from hols.

    MC, that is provoking. Why do I fold in threes? My mother didn't. Maybe my step mother did. Scratching my head really.

  6. Nice colour, that pale blue. I fold in threes too, and so do three of my kids. I think the other one, M, just grabs the cleanest dirty towel out of the laundry....ugh!

  7. PDP, I didn't know how thin the old ones were until we bought the new ones.

    River, the black sheep?

  8. Bore water is death to soft towels - they don't stay new long at our place! But what happens if the guests stage a rebellion and *gasp* select your new towels for their own use?!?!

  9. Red, given house guests are arriving on Saturday, it is something we have discussed. I have made a management decision and they will get the towels they are given.

  10. Like me, I imagine you won't let your guests mix the bath and hand towel colours.

    Something odd happened as I typed the above comment. Tiny fluff filled the air above my lap top as though fluff from your towels had been transported through cyberspace. Spooky!

  11. Wise decision, Andrew!

    I used to save money on everything, including buying skinny, cheap, non absorbent towels. Now we luxuriate in thick, absorbent and totally pampering towels, just because they feel good :)

  12. Victor, I control the towels and the issuing of them. But this is a spooky comment about fluff.

    Hels, you get to a certain age and you owe it to yourself. R has always loved a soft towel, but only recently have I been giving towels a spin in the dryer for five minutes for extra softness.

  13. I put towels on the guest/s bed, so they have no choice in what to use. My collection is such a mish mash, I really need to get some matching sets!

  14. Every family has one....

  15. I do that too Fen. Matching towel sets makes me my mind organised, I think.

    I take M is a male then River.

  16. Many years ago someone convinced me that if I do the three fold my linen press will be easier to keep neat. As my linen press looks like a jumble sale this was obviously a lie. Your linen press looks inviting. Could you offer any more tips, or should we simply swap?

  17. FruitCake, there is one shelf that is a jumble. It is impossible to make it neat, so of advice, I have none.

  18. Hey Andrew are these towels bath sheet size or normal towel size? Your post has inspired me to get some new towels!

  19. Fen, I have only experienced bath sheets in posh hotels. Ours are normal size.
