    This is gross!

    i found these two dirty spots at two corners of this bath towel. it is really gross. worst shopping experience ever!

    Lint Everywhere

    The instructions says to wash before use. I'm glad i did. I washed them twice My washer and dryer were full of lint both times. I had 3 large towels and 3 hand towels. I'm surprise wal-mart is selling these.


    I bought six of these and promptly dropped them in the wash and WOW!! They shed so bad I had to spend 5 or 10 minutes cleaning all of the lint out the washer... and by lint I mean HUGE pieces of clumped together lint. I dried them anyway thinking, "They're new... it's normal." WRONG! You should have seen the lint trap on the dryer! I could have made a small throw pillow from what came off of these! I used two of them and there was so much lint buried in them from the wash that I then had to spend more time cleaning out the shower from all the lint that fell from drying myself off. THEN I had to de-lint my two-day old whiskers! I put them all in the wash again thinking a few more washes might help. It did not. The shedding just doesn't seem to stop! I don't know if it just the colors I bought or if all of them are this way. Just to clarify though, I got the Chocolate Brown and Clay Beige. I'm going to pack these and up try to return them, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Why are the reviews different for these towels?

    If you read the reviews..these are either very thin and shed, or thick and don't shed. I have the chocolate brown BHG EXTRA ABSORBENT bath towels. Because Walmart sells different lines of BHG towels of different prices/thickness...I think that's the issue here. People are either going to the wrong BHG towel thread to complain...OR Walmart is lumping all the reviews for all BHG towel lines into one section. My towels are medium thick, very soft, barely have shed, and have been washed numerous times, and so far the color has held very well. I was expecting clumps of towel from some of these reviews. So it has to be a different BHG line of towels these other reviewers speak of. I bought only a trial amount because of the negative reviews conflicting with the great reviews. I have now ordered more and will update if they are not the same quality as my first order.

    What's with the bad reviews?

    I buy clothes at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, high end stores, and am picky about quality. But I shop at WalMart for their good prices on staple items, food. Normally, I wouldn't buy a towel "for real" at WalMart but we needed one so I bought this one in grey and it's amazing! It's super soft and absorbs so well! It dries easily too (ones that are too thick don't dry fast enough). I've been wasting my money all these years at Macy's and Bed, Bath! I went back and bought more and I'm buying these next year for my son for college! I don't understand why people are saying they leave lint and don't absorb. These are absolutely the best! My husband loves them too! Can't say anything about longevity since we've had them for one month, but for $5.88, who needs longevity? All towels end up smelling after awhile, even expensive ones - they don't need to last a lifetime.

    Chunks and Clumps of Lint Fibers !

    Read the reviews after I had washed the new towels. I agree with the latest reviews. I purchased four bath towels and two hand towels in Crimson Red and Gray Flannel. I washed them per instructions and when I opened the washer I had a tub full of Crimson Red clumps of lint. There was no gray lint, only the red. While they were drying I stopped the dryer and cleaned the lint screen about four times. After drying the red lint covered the red and gray towels. Still, no gray lint visible. Decided to wash a second time. Not as much lint second time but still bad. Both colors are left with red lint covering the towels. I spoke with my sister as to why the gray towels did not shed since they are the exact make of towels. She said that it is due to the dark color of dye for the red towel and that can happen with dark colored towels. Maybe not so much on a higher quality premium towel. I may keep the gray set since they will not shed in the washer or on other items washed with. That is unless I find the drying performance isn't good. I will be returning the crimson red ones for a refund.

    Poor absorbency; Massive lint

    Bottom line: These towels are a waste of money. I feel that it's necessary to inform the unsuspecting public about these towels, so no on else makes the same mistake I did of purchasing them. First of all, whenever we try to dry our bodies with them, the towels will remove the initial water droplets, but will not remove the dampness from your skin. No amount of drying will do that. So skin is left feeling damp. Secondly, I don't know if it's just the color I bought, or if it's all of them, but every time we use the towels, we get MASSIVE amounts of lint ALL OVER our skin. It's really awful. I have been hanging onto these towels like a bad relationship, somehow hoping over time that things will improve. It hasn't. The moment I can afford to replace them, I will be tossing them out and getting some better quality towels elsewhere.

    Better Homes and Gardens Bath Towel Collection

    Better Homes and Gardens Extra Absorbent Bath Towel Collection Do Not buy this brand of towels! I purchased these towels thinking that the name brand is excellent but I was very wrong. I bought them for a wedding gift, the teal quartz towels and they had dry rotted. Parts of the towels had turned gray. The towels looked different for whatever reason and I rubbed my hand across them and a big hole appeared. It was unbelievable. The hole was bigger than my hand. The towels looked gross. For these reason, I gave them a poor rating and I'll never buy them again. The towels are thick and pretty but the quality is just awful. If you decide to buy them, open them up and rub your hand across them several times. I will stick with the Walmart brand towel from now on because they last a lot longer and no holes. I returned them To Walmart and got my money back. I didn't have my receipt but I had no problem getting a refund. Do not buy these towels because you will be definitely be sorry. I forgot to take a picture of them to post on Facebook and on this website.

    Time will tell...

    Bought 6 white bath towels and 6 washcloths yesterday. Immediately washed all the items when I got home from the store. Everything came out of the washer intact and went into the dryer. At the end of the drying time, all washcloths were fine as far as I could see. One of the 6 white bath towels had the hemming on the long ends loose and hanging off the towel on both sides. I JUST BOUGHT THESE TOWELS 2 HOURS PRIOR TO WASHING THEM! I will be bringing the unraveling towel back to the store for a refund! I didn't even use the towel and it's already unraveling??? Unacceptable. ((As others have posted, yes - I too had a FULL lint screen after drying 6 bath towels and 6 washcloths. Very thick, white fluffy lint. Should have saved it to make a sweater or stuff a pillow.)) I hope that the other towels don't unravel as the first one did, but if it does, I will return that damaged one to the store also. I will not lose my receipt!!!

    Nice towels

    Nice towels, washed nicely, I bought these in the store just to make sure I liked them before ordering them on line. Will get some more when I return to a store they are more expensive on line!
