I purchased gray towels of another brand, washed them, they all looked like they got bleached with reddish spots all over them. Took them back [...]... Got the luxury gray Fieldcrest towels in light gray and dark gray- washed them- the exact same thing happened! So i ran them in a clear wash with no soap and most of it is gone, but you can still see it. I am thinking the laundry pods may be sticking to them, but none of my other clothing or towels have EVER done this! Its crazy! So far- they are real fluffy and no snags or ravels and feel and look fabulous... but the bleached looking spots? Crazy.
I bought these towels a couple years ago for our guest bathroom and everyone that used them complimented on how absorbent and soft they were (including my mom who buys top of the line things). We needed new towels for our bathroom and I almost got the cheaper version but decided to stick with what I knew. I'm so glad I did. They are still the same great quality they were a couple years ago. Great value!
