Not an upscale hotel towel by any means....but that's not what I was looking for at this price. They are an everyday towel for those that want no hassle towels. For a rollback price of $22, I got my money's worth & possibly a bit more. I purchased similar, bleach resistant, colorful towels at BB&B a year ago & was happy with them for a kids bath....but sadly they are discontinued. I spent more on those towels (even w/coupons) than I did on these, but I could pick & choose the colors I wanted. I wish there was a way to purchase these towels separately.....or have the option to buy a bath sheet that matched the set.
I did some research while looking for towels & was nervous about the horrible reviews on many brands of towels out there on multiple websites: color bleed, pilling, shredding, water repelling, thin, spot fading, etc. Seems like quality has gone down the tubes since I last bought decent towels for my home. In fact....the towels I'm retiring were a wedding present almost 2 decades ago from JCP. They've seen better days, but they've stood the test of time....seriously.
I haven't used them yet, but I did wash & dry both colors.....together....since that's what I'm always going to do. I bought light blue & violet. The light blue isn't as turquoisey as the picture looks. It's just a nice light blue. The violet is similar to the picture, but not quite. I'm curious about the morning glory color.
I experienced NO color bleed, NO color fade, NO shredding, NO shrinking, NO pilling, NO lint transfer during the wash/dry cycle. Everything looks in tact & they are soft, but not too soft....thin but not too thin. I think these will dry fine between uses unlike some thicker towels. On this 1st dry cycle, I emptied the lint screen out once in the middle of the dry cycle & then again at the end. Neither were completely full.
The terry loops can snag if you aren't careful taking the tags off. I was in a rush & tried popping the connectors by hand & snagged a towel. This would probably happen if you had frisky cats, too. ^..^
Overall good towels. I plan on buying more for rotation so I don't have to replace them in the near future.
