I ordered these towels because I had a gift card to overstock that was expiring. I thought white towels might not be a bad idea because they can be bleached - our colored towels end up dingy and, after a while, seem to retain odors no matter how well we wash them. When they arrived they were crammed, folded, into a box that was too small. I could see the box was bulging and had been taped heavily to keep it closed. Due to all the tape, going in all directions, all over the box, I had to use scissors to open it. I slightly nicked one of the hand towels while trying to very carefully cut the box open - the damage wasn't awful, but it was definitely annoying. I wasn't even using very sharp scissors! I washed and dried the towels as instructed and noticed that there were some additional thread-pulls when they came out of the dryer. This was a little disappointing, but they are soft and fluffy, don't leave fuzz all over a wet body, and dry quickly, so all-in-all I'd say they're great towels. Overstock should really be more careful about their packaging.
