I got 8 of these and put them in the wash before first use. They immediately began to fray and fall apart, despite doing them on all low settings and using nothing but delicate detergent (baby formula): no bleach, no softener. They were dried on med-low heat and are just a mess, with every edge fraying. And that's before they were even used once. Don't waste your money!
I recently bought some pricey teak chaises which needed equally pricey cushions. They quickly got covered with spots from the stuff that falls from the palm trees in our yard and began to look nasty. I was not happy until I found these cotton towel covers! They fit perfectly! Now I can keep my cushions looking new for much longer and I can throw the towels into the washing machine...easy peasy!
