My daughter purchased six towels, all black and six towels with a black and grey design of squares for xmas. I prewashed, four times before use. It is now April and even after weekly washes and dryers there is still lint residue left on our skin (has decreased, but still annoying). and still leaves alot on my dryer filter trap. I swear these towels should be bald. She chose this product thinking it would be better quality. If I hadn't thrown out my old ones, or could afford new ones, I would not consider hese again. I was so disappointed, but didn't want to hurt her feelings. I am discouraged.
