i really like these martha stewart towels a whole lot. they are nice because i am able to buy many different colors in order to match the towel with the design and color scheme of the bathroom. i got the towels a few months ago and the color is still going strong on every one of them. the towels are machine washable and they are able to go in the dryer so that makes it much easier when they are soiled. the towels are fluffy and soft and they are very nice right after you get out of the shower. these towels are affordable but they lack consistency when it comes to quality. some of the towels last for months without a stray string, and others begin to fray weeks after i buy them. that is probably one of the only disadvantages to this that i can think of. the towel is big enough to wrap around my whole body with having and cold spots after i get out of the shower. my kids love to choose from the different available when choosing the color towel they should use.
