Care Instructions: For cleaning, machine wash separately in cold water, using only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Tumble dry on low, remove promptly, and warm iron as needed. To best care for this product, please exclusively follow the washing instructions on the label. Fabric softeners should not be used when washing or drying, since softeners often include chemicals that can break down the construction of the material and decrease its absorbency.
In addition, take care to avoid direct contact between this product's fabric and chemical acids or bleaches often found in many cosmetics. Certain cosmetics such as facial care products, creams, makeup, and makeup removers contain chemical acids and/or bleaches which can discolor fabric. These chemicals do not dissolve in water and may cling to the fabric when wiped against the skin, leading to a discoloration that appears as spots or splotches. Generally, it's best to use a towel or cloth with white fabric when removing facial creams and similar products from the face. Likewise, discolorations may also occur when attempting to spot-clean stains with bar soap. Certain bar soaps also contain high acidity levels and/or dyes that can discolor fabric.

The stated density of 700 grams per square meter is accurate—the 30 in. x 55 in. bath towel weighs a little over 26 oz. or 750 g. They soak up an incredible amount of water and are very heavy when wet.
The weaving is even and without broken or loose loops or threads. They are hemmed on all four sides which helps them maintain their shape when laundered. The stitching is well-done except that I would prefer that it be reinforced at the corners and the double row of decorative satin stitching is only attractive on one side. I got both the rich lavender-gray and the pale blue stripes and the colors are gorgeous.
As with most towels, the cotton thread has been treated during the manufacturing process so they should be soaked overnight in hot water with a good quality laundry detergent and then washed without fabric softener and with an extra rinse cycle before the first use. The softness and absorbency will then continue to improve with continued use and repeated laundering.
When they first arrived, they were pretty stiff (think starched new clothing) and I was worried. However, I went ahead and put them in the washer, no fabric softener. All I can say is "Wow!
These are all cotton and are very large for standard size towels - it says fifty inches, but without measuring them, just holding them up, they felt a lot closer to five feet. They wrap around me comfortably and soak up water like crazy. My daughter gets four of these for her house, and I am taking five to replace some older towels that have worn out.
The bright white color combined with the thin embroidered stripe make these super-classy looking and I am proud to have them in my bathroom.
Nice, nice, nice!
The towel is large, the weight is appropriate and shows its quality. I have tried so many towels and so many price ranges and they don't compare to the price/quality you get with this.
It dries you off roughly 60% faster than other towels. So say it used to take 3 minutes to dry off, this cuts that to less than 1 1/2 minutes.
Great job Amazon! You produced a great product of great quality and reasonable price.
I purchase over 250 items a year from Amazon and always give my honest opinion and rating.
This towel earns 5 stars!
I first used it before washing, straight out of the box and it was definitely thick but not what I'd call soft and fluffy. Nonetheless it was super-absorbent. Then I washed it and it got softer while retaining its thickness and absorbing capacity but again, I wouldn't call it soft and fluffy. it does, however, feel substantial.
It feels like the towel with which you want to wipe your face after a long, stressful day. It feels like a towel that will last a while. And, to top it off, it's elegant.
It's very white with two black stripes at the bottom. Simple and elegant. And the colors will work in most bathrooms.
Yes this towel costs more than most wash cloths. But, in my opinion, it's worth it.
They are one-sided, thin, and stiff. If you like crunchy towels they might be for you. I was looking for something plush, that feels like a towel on both sides. Oh well! Chalk it up to one of the hazards of online shopping! :)
