I buy these about every 6 months to replace my kitchen towels. I hate "kitchen" towels since they DO NOT adsorb water at all, they just kind of push the water around. So I got into the habit of buying "hand Towels" every now and then. BUT - - before this purchase all the "hand towels" I got were pretty much just 12"x12", which is good, and that is what I was expecting (didn't read all the info on them that close as I didn't consider it important at the time). What I got was like 16x30 inches (which is what it DOES say in the "detail" of the description area of the product. Anyway, I know NOW where I can get a MUCH better deal for the same money on my "Hand Towels" (Which of course make fabulous kitchen towels) TRY IT!!! THEY ARE GREAT!!!
