Not worth the money
They are not at all absorbent. Even water just spreads in a bigger puddle when I try to wipe it up. I thought maybe they would be more absorbent after I washed them so I put them all in the washer and they stuck to all the towels and caused static on all my other towels. I would not recommend this product. I am going to see if I can send them back for a refund!
This is the reply by ZeroWasteStore.com:
Hi Sheila, The towels will become more absorbent as you wash them, up to 15 cycles! We also do not recommend using fabric softener with them. They do take some time getting used to, but once they are washed a few times, we think you'll really love them :)
My reply to zero waste:
If they do not work well until I wash them 15 tomes then YOU should wash them before you sell them!!!
I should not have to WASTE so much water to get them to work well. I do not use fabric softener on any of my towels.
I still do not recommend these towels and I would like to get a return shipping label to send them back and get a refund. In California we are in a drought situation and had I known I would have to waste so much water to make them work I never would have purchased them.
I would definitely not call these zero waste.
