I have used these for quite some time. They're great for drying dishes, hands, and even cleaning glass and mirrors, dusting, etc.
I love that they wash and dry so easily and quickly.
After using, I simply hang to dry on the oven door handle or lay over the top of the dishes in the drain rack.
This purchase was for My son, Who loves to cook and needed a few things for His apartment kitchen.
These are a good value, and are priced fair enough that when time comes to replace them, it's not a strain on any budget.
I've also researched and found many cloth diapering parents use these to cloth diaper babies.
I know some embroiders use flour sack towels for embroidery work, but I don't know how these would fair for using to embroider.
I haven't compared this brand to others in person,but I have price compared to other brands online. These do seem to be just a smidgen thinner than those My Grandmother used, but not so much so that I wouldn't use or recommend to others.
Simply, a budget friendly and good buy.
They do hold up for a long time. I've owned My own for a couple of years with very little wear being visible.
Don't be fooled by the thinness of the material.
These work SURPRISINGLY well.
I hope My honest review helps others to try these.
Have a Great Day!
