5 stars for the ecloth luxury bath toweltch washing up sponge and scrubberIn a Nutshell: Hands down, the e-body® Luxury Bath Towel by e-cloth® is the most absorbent – and absolutely the softest – towel I’ve ever used. Touch it on your wet skin and ZAPPO, almost instantly dry. This is not the “grabby” microfiber that you’re used to.

First Impressions:

Pulling the e-body® Luxury Bath Towel out of the package yesterday, I’ll admit that I was anxious. I’ve had such high hopes for these e-body® products and I just didn’t want to be let down. I stared at it in the package for a minute, daring it to disappoint me. But hell-O! This thing is soft!

How soft is it, Kate?

Well:

  • it’s the kind of soft that you want to wrap a newborn baby into and just snuggle with.
  • it’s the kind of soft that you want pressed against your face when you’re feeling down
  • it’s the kind of soft that your dog will want to nuzzle into and then plop down on, leaving black hairs and dirt on as you frantically (and angrily) “shoo” it away.

Does it Cling or Grab onto Your Skin?

You know how e-cloth and Norwex cleaning cloths can be VERY clingy and they have that awful feeling on your fingers? Well forget about it.

The new e-body® Luxury towels are NOT the “clingy” microfiber that you’re used to. How is it possible that the Luxury towel and the General Purpose e-cloth are made of the same materials?

I did sense a very tiny bit of “grab” on my finger tips as I touched it, but I was really testing for it and my hands were extremely dry. I didn’t feel it on my face and if you were Average Joe, just picking up the towel to use it, I doubt you’d sense it.

The absolute softness and non-grabby texture of this towel came as a huge relief to me. I have one of the Norwex Bath Towels that I’ve used TWICE in 3 years. It’s horrid. If you put it on your body, it will cling to you. And you don’t want to know what it’s like if you’ve got stubble on your legs.

Does It Work?

This morning I had the rare opportunity to take a shower without having to wonder what the kids were doing while I was in there. To be honest, I couldn’t wait to get OUT of the shower because I was really hankering to try my new e-body® Luxury Bath Towel.

It’s really hard to describe the performance of this towel. “Performance“. Geez, I sound like I’m reviewing a car. But Holy $hit, this towel is impressive! Here’s what happened:

  1. I stepped out of the shower and grabbed the towel
  2. I placed it on my right arm and was about to rub (like you would with a terry/cotton towel)
  3. Then I said “shit” (pardon the language but I do try to be accurate and that IS what I said) because I realized I didn’t have to rub. My arm was dry!
  4. Then I started experimenting because I really didn’t believe how well it worked. So I dabbed at my legs. Zing! Dry. I dabbed at my belly. Zing! Dry. You get the idea – no need to make this an X-Rated review.

Honestly, this towel is amazing. I’m not exaggerating when I say it almost instantly sucks the moisture off your skin. No rubbing required, just dabbing.

I’m not a person that is easily excited or impressed. I was excited by this towel. It’s the first e-cloth product that I told my husband he just had to try.

Do You Need It?

If you run a bed and breakfast, your customers will love these towels. They’d also make a wonderful wedding gift. Or Mother’s Day gift … hint… hint.

Unless you’re in the market for new towels or have a towel fetish, no, you probably don’t need it. But… it will dry you faster and it feels so nice on your skin.

Pros:

  1. it works amazingly well to dry your body.
  2. it’s incredibly soft
  3. it absorbs 4 times more moisture than cotton and dries twice a fast
  4. it’s a beautiful towel and will impress anyone
  5. like all e-cloth® products, the e-body® Luxury Bath Towel comes with a 300 wash guarantee.

Cons:

  1. at $39.99 it’s a bit pricey, but it’s guaranteed for 300 washes so you’ll get your money’s worth
  2. it’s white. I have an issue with white. I live in a part of town where the water pipes are dirty water from my tapancient and occasionally, without warning, my water has a rusty tinge to it. Or if they do any construction work within 1/2 km from our house, we get muddy water. There is no way these will stay white in my house. Take a look at what came out of my tap one day last year.
