You probably know the feeling when your racking your brain about what to buy someone as a little minding present. Fine if you know their interests, likes and dislikes. Fortunately for me I knew that some new black and white towels would be exactly what my friend would appreciate.
Having recently remodelled part of their home mainly white with black detailing, some matching towels would be very welcome.
After quite a bit of browsing around on my favorite shopping site at Amazon and searching for these towels, my short list was at last complete.
I don’t know whether it’s the old story we keep hearing that is applying here “They don’t make them like they used to” or not, but on the surface it certainly seemed like it. Digging out the good from the bad was not as easy I had anticipated.

My Short List of Black and White Towels
My task was to research and find Egyptian cotton bath towels in my chosen color scheme, as I know they provide good value. Some kitchen towels and hand towels suitable for my friend’s children would also be candidates. Listed below are the best that I could find in each of these categories.
The list may be of some use to anyone else looking for the same types of towels, so here are my.
When I do research for any products one point I always take into account is the feedback from users, as you will see when reading any of the other products I have reviewed.
For example, with the Mickey Mouse embroidered black and white towels I sort of broke that rule of only considering the products that only had a good high percentage in the rating reviews. There was a reason which you can read about further down the page.
Egyptian Cotton Bath Towels
If you’re looking for bath towels at bargain prices then Egyptian cotton towels should certainly be considered. Not cheap useless towels, but good quality towels at good prices.
These particular towels are rated at 900 GSM (grams per square meter) which refers to the density of the towels.
900 GSM is as good as it gets as these figures are associated with luxury or premium quality.
Each bath towel measures 30 inches x 55 inches and made in two-ply Terry Cloth and of course comes in many other colors apart from black and white versions.
You can read more about these black and white versions of Egyptian cotton bath towels at the link below.
Or if you would like to see their 6-piece set, take a look here. The set consists of:
Two Bath Towels (30 inches x 55 inches each)
Two Hand Towels (20 inches x 30 inches each)
Two Face Towels (13 inches x 13 inches each)
They have a very good deal on the 6 piece set at the moment which may be worth taking advantage of. Again both black and white towels are available to mix and match and obtain the desired look.

Kitchen Towels – By Cotton Craft
My next category I researched was the black and white kitchen towels and the ones that came out tops were these ones made by Cotton Craft.
After looking through a number in this section, many looked OK initially, but when digging deeper, I soon discover that the quality wasn’t there.
My final choice was the Cotton Craft kitchen towels made of 2 ply Terry Waffle Weave which don’t leave lint on dishes and glasses while at the same time have good absorbent qualities.
I know my friends will love these as I have often heard them comments criticizing towels they purchased for the kitchen previously.
Another excellent use for these towels will be when hung on the ends of their kitchen cart making them easy to find when needed.
Having a set in the black color and another set in white will match the color scheme of their kitchen very well when hanging one of each color from their chrome towel rack.
If you are a barbecue fan then some of the black kitchen towels would be ideal to use when sitting out by the fire pit coffee table or barbecue area.
As you can imagine, white towels in this situation with dirty tools and sticky charred food is an absolute no-no.
To avoid drips of water when washing windows or when cleaning down the shower walls, I find these towels handy to have to hand when using our karcher window washer.
Of course there are other colors available that would co-ordinate with a good many kitchens. While at the same time be long lasting, with good drying qualities and at a very reasonable price. There is a good discount at the time of writing this page. See them for yourself here.
Black Towels With White Mickey Mouse Embroidered Silhouette
You may remember what I mentioned at the introduction of this post, about my rule of only considering products that have plenty of good reviews from those who have purchased the products.
With my choice of black and white hand towels I have thrown my own criteria out of the window and for one very good reason.
It would seem that most if not all of the complaints about these towels is about the confusion regarding the expected quantity of towels being purchased. Many people here have given the product very poor ratings because they only received 1 towel in the package and expected either 2 or 4.
Some buyers have paid as much as $11 for one; read the full review here, now selling for much less.
Well as for myself this was not a problem. I personally think that these are very good value and I know for a fact, that anyone interested in Mickey Mouse as my friends kids are will be delighted with them.
The problem is not with the quality of the product, but a misunderstanding about numbers. If the product vender had an image of just one towel instead of 2 and 4, they could have saved themselves the negative reviews.
The black and white towels feature a stylized silhouette of the world famed Mickey Mouse character and edged with a striped black and white pattern.
I have gone into this listing and now see that it has been clearly altered to state, 1 Towel. Much better.
So the lesson for us all in the product above is to dig a bit deeper when searching for good products and just brushing past reviews too quickly could be misleading.
The three products I have featured above are the best in each category that I have found. But why not take a look at some black and white towels for yourself, you just never know what might turn up today. Click Here to See More Choices
