I've always loved the look of white towels but have always avoided them due to their high maintenance nature. However, after much hmm-ing and haw-ing I decided that as long as I committed myself to a white load of laundry a week and a plain one, all will be well. Also, there was a 30% sale on all towels in David Jones.
They're so white and fluffy and thick and heavy! Folded up, my previous towel is only about half the volume of this current set.
