Sheets & Towels

Postby llamagrl » Sun Nov 04, 2018 6:23 pm

I think I remember reading on the site that a lot of people thought JCPenney had the best towels but Kohls has the better sheets (price v quality). I couldn’t find it in his search so now I’m going to ask... is there a certain brand of towels at JCPenney that are better than others? I have to get both for my son for college next year and would like to get some on black Friday.

Thanks in advance!

I remember a discussion last year about quick dry towels - take a look here: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=34416&start=58

Earlier on that thread someone also gave their opinion of the ranking of Kohl's towels.

Here's another forum post from 2014 about Black Friday towels, but I think that the one jeanerz posted might be the one you were looking for.

I loooooooove JCP quick-dry towels! I have so many. I didn't see them in the JCP ad this year though but maybe I missed them.

ah-ha! the "home tribal" threw me off as i glanced at that page the first time.
Their hand towels are usually on sale too, I should probably buy more of those since I have more than enough bath towels.

my favorite sheets have been from Walmart. I prefer the high thread count to the microfiber ones. My son loves the microfiber sheets as they keep him warmer. I go back & forth between JCP & Kohls for the washcloths, they both have very good ones.

Our JCP closed a few years ago and it's like finding a needle in a haystack for towels and sheets at our Kohl's.

Some advice from a college mom - don't buy a ton of towels and sheets for your child for college and don't spend a fortune. I bought my son towels, washcloths and hand towels for $2 each (or per pack) at Target last year. He's been using them and washing them all semester and has not had a problem. As far as sheets, make sure of the size. Most dorms are twin XL. We also got his sheets at Target on clearance right around this time last year (early November). If you can find mattress protectors for cheap, get them now before they Jack the prices up next spring/summer. Most colleges are making the kids get the mattress protectors now due to the increase in bed bug populations across the country. And buy the $7 pillows at Wal-Mart. They're comfy and don't get unbearably flat.

Also, I'm not sure of your child's major, but stock up on those $5 thumb drives that Wal-Mart sells on BF. I bought my kiddo 6 last BF for college this year, and he's going shopping with me when he's home for turkey day to buy more lol.

And one last thing - unless your child has a proclivity for actual blankets/comforters, I suggest a sleeping bag instead. My son says taking his sleeping bag that rolls up neatly and takes up very little space versus an actual bulky blanket helps a ton when he and his roommate have friends over for their gaming tournaments and movie binges.

Best of luck and if you happen to need any other advice on college stuff, feel free to PM me. :D

Thank you for the advice...especially about the mattress cover. I’ll have to look for those in the ads. :D

in my experience the cheap microfiber sheets you'll find at JCP and Kohls are very soft, almost silky feeling, but very thin. I have a bunch and I like them but you can tell they aren't quite top quality.

I like the cuddlduds flannel ones I got last year at Kohl's. I had another flannel set that I think I got from jcp, but it didn't hold up as well, and I think it was thinner.

Is there anyone else like me who prefers thin, chintzy bath towels? I like them because they are lightweight and dry faster. I don't like having heavy, wet towels lying around the house, and I find using thick, luxury bath towels (like the ones I encounter in hotels) to feel weird.

The best towels I've gotten were some Tommy Hilfiger towels a few years ago. They're not too thick but not thin either. They're so soft!

I've never used a hotel towel I really liked. I think it may be something about how they wash them (or how many times they've been washed). They're never really soft. That said, I don't like the thin towels - the ones I have I only use when I wash my dog (or need to block a leak). I haven't bought towels in a long time - seriously, they seem to last forever - so I'm not sure what line they are. Pretty sure they were from JCP though.

I bought a couple "The Big One" towels from Kohls last year and they are fine for me. They aren't thick and dreamy, but for the price, they have held up quite nice.
