How To Choosing the Perfect Beach Towels

As with choosing other household items, picking beach towels can be a tedious process when you take the time to do it right. Sure, anyone can pick up some cheap options at the nearest home appliance store, but anyone looking for only the best beach towels for ultimate durability, fluffiness, and drying ability will need time and effort on the search.

However, figuring out what to look for and how to choose the best beach towels does not have to complicate the process, thanks to a little help from some towel experts. The team got us some great tips to find out if a towel is actually good or not - and whether a cheap towel will be worth the investment. Believe it or not, the largest, softest towel is not always the best, especially if it does not hold up after a few uses. Instead of going alone, follow these tips to choose the best beach towels for you and your budget.

Certain factors can create or ruin a good beach towel. Knowing what they are and whether the beach towel options you are considering have them can mean a better towel purchase, especially if you put some time and energy into doing your research. Good luck, you can find a high-quality beach towel that is up to your standards and within your budget - and once you are wrapped in the soft, absorbent towel after the shower, the time and effort you put into finding the best beach towel will be 100 percent worth it.

Follow these fail-safe steps to choose a high-quality beach towel and prepare to be amazed at what a little knowledge can do. Your bathing ritual will never be the same again in all the best ways.

Talk about weight

Heavier, thicker towels tend to provide the softness and absorbency that any sensible person would want from a towel, but it can be difficult to judge whether a towel is heavy or thick enough, even more so if you shop online. This is where grams per square foot or GSM comes in. A towel's GSM refers to its weight, and the higher the performance you can expect from it, the higher a towel's GSM is. In most cases, a GSM of 500 or more should be enough, although anyone who wants a softer or more absorbent towel can search for beach towels with higher GSMs.

Some websites for home or linen list the GSM of the towel as such. Other retailers list the weight as 700 grams weight (the number will vary); this also refers to GSM. If GSM is not shared and you happen to know the weight in grams, you can use this handy GSM computer to use the dimensions and weight of the towel to determine the GSM. (This is also a handy trick if you want to check GSM for a reliable towel you already own.) Many retailers do not share GSM, especially not on more affordable towel options. This is not a deal-breaker, but it may mean that you will feel the towel personally to be sure it is up to snuff.

Look at materials

The team says the best beach towels are created with 100 percent cotton. Long adhesive cotton means that the fibers of the towel are longer, which means that the bath towel will be softer, more durable, and more absorbent. Check the materials that must be listed online or on the towel care label along with the laundry symbols.
