One of the best parts about being an adult is finally learning to splash out on the daily fundamentals — buttery-soft bedsheets, luxury candles, a good mattress, fluffy slippers (okay, we’ve always loved and appreciated those), and our personal favourite, good quality bath towels. Honestly, stepping out of the shower and wrapping yourself in a towel that isn’t damp or slightly scratchy is truly the mark of adulthood.
Here at Lifehacker Australia, we believe that not all bath towels are created equal. By finding the right bath towel (or bath sheet), your morning routine will no longer just be how to move through your morning pre-coffee but a luxury self-care experience.
You want your bath towel to be absorbent, fluffy, made from the right, non-toxic materials, and to feel like you’re staying in a five-star hotel every time you step out of the shower. You also want to get the most bang for your buck, which means finding a good set that comes with face towels, hand towels, a bath mat, both towels and even bath sheets.
The good news is that we’ve taken the time to find all of the best bath towels in Australia worthy of hanging in your bathroom. We’ve got you covered, from 100% cotton bath towels to plush, fluffy bath sheets.
