It's a shop towel, not Egyptian linen. It's meant for wiping up grease, oil and other nasty stuff, not polishing Faberge eggs. "Cheap, Cheap, Cheap!"? Yes they are. How nice/expensive do you want something to be when it's supposed to end up soaked in gear lube? These towels are perfect for their purpose, the one star review should go to an intellect too deficient to understand what a shop rag is.
I use 100 of these every 2 weeks in a (gasp) auto shop and they soak up oil wonderfully. If they were a tighter weave, they wouldn't soak up thick oil nearly as fast. Fold it in half and it keeps you from getting burned on hot exhaust. They do a great job wiping off axle grease. If you want ultra fine, microfiber for rubbing fingerprints off your Ming vase don't f*&^#$g order something that says "shop towel".
I like these better than microfiber cleaning clothes. My husband also owns an autobody shop. So these towels have a duel purpose.
So, these are shop towels, not sure what else to say....they are the same red towels you can buy at any auto parts store. If you are not familiar with the use of a "shop towel" and intent these to be as soft as micro fiber or as thick as a beach towel, you will probably be disappointed. They are throw-away shop towels at a cheaper price than you would find in an auto parts store. Unless you are buying from a bulk company like Uline, it may be cheaper through them.
I like these better than microfiber cleaning clothes. These wash out better, are of a uniform shape and are sized slightly smaller so they're easier to handle.
Out of the package they're not very absorbent. They need at least one trip through the wash to improve performance.
I found that the "grit" of these towels made for excellent metal polishers. I cleaned out the aluminum tracks of my sliding glass door, and they worked really good for that. But I tried them on glass, and the result was not fantastic. These towels don't like water. Cleaners absorb well, and--dare i say-- windex, or other hard surface cleaners seem to squeeze right into these towels.
Even though they don't dry things the best, they are still very good at collecting debris off the surface of whatever they scrub, but water beads off them like they have been scotch-guarded. If you wet them first, and wring them out really well, they can be used like a "shammy" and pull large water drops off.
I use many different types of rags and towels as a window washer, pressure washer, and auto detailer. So, this long-winded review reflects that experience. Sorry for the extra punctuations.
They are quite thin so I would not plan on washing them to use multiple times. You could try using them and then washing them once or twice and re-using themn but be ware that the blue dye will get all over on other things you wash so I would recommend you wash them separately. You've been warned! I tried washing a few of them with some white rags and the white rags turned sky blue.
I use these to wipe down my car motor, clean my wheels, things like that. It's nice to not have to mess up my nice microfiber towels that I uses for waxing my car.
But when these get dirty, I just throw them away since it's more of a hassle to try to wash them than it's worth.
After reading another review, I just had to count them up. I got 100... I had to count twice because a couple were shorter than the rest, so once I found a short one, that I might have missed, I went back and counted again.
Maybe 5 out of the 100 didn't have hemming on the edges, so they would be the ones you wouldn't try to wash.
I choose blue because I have a ton of red rags and you never know when you pick up a rag, it's going to have a blob of grease in the middle of it. By changing colors, at least for a while, I know if grab a blue one, it will be new.
