I don't understand the negative reviews. They scared me and I probably spent two hours scouring darn towel reviews where there were no complaints about the towel fraying/unraveling after one wash or clogging up their dryer with lint. After realizing how ridiculous it was that I spent hours reading towel reviews for one darn towel for my child, I decided on these since they were reasonably priced and I typically trust Amazon (except I don't know what the deal is with fake reviews lately).
First, the towel is thick enough and very soft even after the first wash. We haven't used it yet, so I can't comment on how absorbent it is. I'm sure it will be good enough for government work.
Next, we washed it which is what made me want to come here and review it before using it. They absolutely do not frey and do not seem like they are going to anytime soon. I washed the towels with a normal load in hot water and dried them on high heat. Nothing snagged and I don't see major issues with shrinking around the seams (maybe a little bit). Also, there are no white spots. What a weird thing for others to have happen...
Lastly, the amount of lint was totally reasonable for a new towel. All new towels have lint... it comes with the territory. See pics. I included the lint ball for reference.
