I have tried many, many dish cloths and couldn't find the right size or quality I wanted.....until these! I absolutely love these. They are not too big for my girly hand and they absorb and dry so quickly. They actually scrub a bit as well. I am going to stock up on these. I washed them immediately and I didn't experience any fraying of edges, I also have a newer washing machine, a front load, maybe thats why? I would buy these again & again!
