I needed to replace bathroom towels and purchased the solid Threshold towels for several reasons. First, the color (sun yellow) worked with my bathroom colors. Most yellows are too bright, but these were spot-on. Next, they were a solid value. I also read the few reviews and found them helpful, but in my case not entirely on target.
The products are absorbent, and after a few runs through the washer/dryer the cotton lint that seemed to trouble some reviewers dissipated.
On the plus side the sizes of the hand, face and bath towels are slightly larger than most other bath tower products. Another feature that I noticed was that the seems did not pucker. In many cases the thread shrinks in the washer/dryer process and it becomes noticeable. Not so in the case of these products.
And let's not forget value. The purchase price is highly competitive, maybe even more of a bargain. And if you use your Target Red Card, well you get another 5% off the final cost.
Overall - highly satisfied.
Bought these instore in Creole Red. I would describe color as Coral. No problems with lint or absorbancy. I wash them in a front-end washer using a non-petroleum product detergent, vinegar for softener. Dried without dryer sheets or any drier-softener fragrance products. Problems for others maybe are from water hardness or softness, washer type, load, detergent product, softener products, and drier? I use a condensation type drier. To keep towels smelling nice, I store bath soaps inbetween the towels.
