This is actually a pretty nice bath towel rack for the money. Although the rack is listed as Satin Nickel it is actually chrome, but looks nice. Also, the top end pieces are some kind of plastic but all the rest of the rack is chrome metal and sturdy. The directions to put it together were rather poor. I couldn't have done it without my husbands natural ability to put things together, as the instructions were lacking. Overall I like the looks of the towel rack and it holds good sized bath towels very nicely.

I love these white bath mats. Quality is excellent (just like you would get from hotels). Stitching and finishing was excellent and very little lint after washing. In particular I love the Greek key design around the edge as they give these mats a contemporary edge over plain ones. I do not understand an earlier review however saying these were used for hand towels. They are bath mats made of toweling material and even though the looping isn't long it dense and highly absorb-able. I much prefer a bath mat than can be washed regularly and dried quickly than one that is very thick (with backing etc) but can't be washed often or takes forever to dry out. If you are looking for the latter then perhaps a bath rug is a better choice, but these are definitely bath mats. As I have a large family I needed durability and have been impressed with the Arsenal towels from Salbakos so was very pleased to see they did the mats as well. I have had my towels for a couple of months and they have held up perfectly. The kids love them and they dry quickly which was really important to me. I am also very happy that Overstock ships overseas, as I am a big fan of Turkish cotton.

The fabric is little thin, but I still like how it looks in my bathroom. Overall, it was a good purchase.

This is a beautiful, but thin shower curtain. It looks great in my bathroom and provides interest. It is a little on the short side as well. But I'd buy it again. It is really a nice look.

This item was everything it claimed to be and more. It is truly beautiful and with the matching comforter and shams and the valance it dresses dress up your bedroom and bath. Love it! I highly recommend it. Jerry, Indiana

I purchased these to go with the Authentic Hotel & Spa bath sheets. These hand towels are great. No lint after the first wash. Naturally soft cotton and no need to use fabric softner in the wash. I am extremely pleased with these hand towels!

These towels were so much better than I ever imagined. We have always purchased bath sheets instead of bath towels. But, have noticed that many of them are sized very small. These are wonderfully huge and extra soft. No lint after first washing. No need for fabric softner in the wash, as they are naturally soft. I showed them to a friend and she was so surprised at the size and the weight of the cotton bath sheet. If you are looking for a high cotton count these are the ones to purchase. I highly recommend these !

I am using these to replace other egyptian cotton towels I bought on a promotional sale. The old set was very nice and I was impressed with it's initial quality. They had a heavy weight, dried well, and felt like thick and soft since they were egyptian cotton. I do not like rough scratchy polyester towels. I think soft towels dry you off better.They were superior to my regular cotton towels. I enjoyed them for awhile but the decorative weave pattern did have polyester thread in it. That was bad as of course it began to fray. I like natural products as they tend to last longer thus look better. The towels ended up showing premature signs of aging. I knew I had to get another set but did not want to be cheap this time. I did my research and bought the highest gsm towel set I could while carefully noting the size to make sure I was not getting short changed. The price on this set seemed low compared to other brands so I was unsure if this would be the quality stated. Upon arrival they came packaged like my last set but were much much nicer when I opened them. The decorative weave pattern is one of the nicest I've seen trumping others I've looked at and putting my cheap set to shame. It is all super thick cotton which means its soft and super absorbent. The color was deep and consistant which was a concern as other retailers have unorthodox names for colors and it's hard to be sure you are getting what you think you are. This is a great set that will last a long time. I will be ordering another set to fill my towel rack and also plan on getting the bath sheets. I can't find a single flaw as of yet.

Turquoise is valued in many cultures and often used in jewelry and other decorative items. A natural stone, turquoise comes in beautiful shades of blue and green, and each piece is distinct.

Most turquoise jewelry has silver for the setting; however, some artists use gold or gold-plated silver in their gemstone jewelry. Gold requires little care, but silver may tarnish. Cleaning turquoise gemstone jewelry gently and frequently, once a week if worn daily, will help keep the piece looking its best. These tips on cleaning turquoise can protect your gemstone jewelry and ensure that it is always ready to wear.
