For years, my family scraped by using a collection of mismatched bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths. Some were from my college days, others were from my husband’s bachelor years, while others were wedding gifts. All of them were old and growing thin. Last year, I finally gave myself permission to retire the old towels and buy some new ones from Aldi. I bought some for our master bathroom and some different ones for the hall bathroom, and I discovered that Aldi towels are pretty good quality for the price you pay. My mom even remarked on how pretty our towels are when she came to visit.
Considering my fondness for bath towels at Aldi, it was a given that I had to try some new towel products the discount grocery store recently stocked: a body wrap and a hair towel. In a home with several girls, the hair towel seemed especially intriguing. The body wrap and hair towels are sold separately, with the hair towels as a two-pack.
At the time of publication, the Huntington Home Body Wrap cost $8.99, and the Huntington Home Hair Towel 2-Pack also cost $8.99. These were sold in a mixed case that contained both body wraps and hair towels.
These are all Aldi Finds, so they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after they sell out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back at some point. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.
Here’s more information on the body wrap and hair towels, according to Aldi:
- Available in Floral, Peaches, or Blue Daisy designs (I purchased the body wrap and hair towels in the Floral pattern. The 2-pack of hair towels includes one patterned towel and one solid-colored towel.)
- Super absorbent
- Hair Towels: 24.5″ x 10.5″
- Body Wrap: 60″ x 31″
- OEKO-TEX certified
- Made in China
In addition, the body wrap features an adjustable Velcro strap plus a small elastic inner loop so you can hang it up to dry. One size fits most, and the package describes it as “a perfect cross between a towel and a robe.” I’m 5’6″ and the body wrap hits right at my knees. It’s not very thick or plush compared to most traditional bath towels, but it will get you dry.
Meanwhile, the hair towel package advertises that they “stay in place,” and each towel features a large plastic button that can be put through a small elastic loop to help keep the towel in place. The hair towels are not thick, but they feel fairly absorbent. If you have a lot of long, thick hair, I’m not sure how well these will perform compared to a traditional bath towel.
To use the body wrap, simply undo the Velcro, open the towel up, place it around your body, and seal the Velcro.
To use the hair towel, place it over your head as shown in the illustration on the back of the box (shown in the photo above), then twist it, and wrap it over the back of your head.

Both the body wrap and the hair towels are easy to use, and I’m looking forward to putting them through the paces. I’ll update this post with any new developments.
One final word: these are all machine washable in cold water with like colors. The hair towels should be washed on the gentle cycle. Be sure to close the hook and loop on the body wrap while washing to keep the wrap in its original condition. These can all be tumbled dry on low heat. Fabric softeners or dryer sheets should be avoided with the hair towels. Both the body wrap and hair towels should avoid contact with products containing benzoyl peroxide. Do not iron.
The Huntington Home Body Wrap and Huntington Home Hair Towel are unique additions to your bathroom towel cabinet. They’re not the thickest towels, but they work. The wrap functions as both a towel and a robe of sorts, while the hair towels are a good way to get your wet hair out of the way while it’s drying. The fact that these are available in cute designs is a plus, too.
