I love the thickness and the color of the towels, the teal is a beautiful color green. There is a STRONG chemical odor when you first open the package, I only washed the towels once before using them, and the smell hasn't gone away yet. It makes me wonder which chemicals they used on them, and was it to discourage insects or mold during shipping and storage? I hope the smell dissipates at the 2nd washing! Next time, I'll buy towels in person at a store, but it's still a good bargain. Last point, I found the wash cloths are TOO thick to use comfortably, it's difficult to wring out - I'm going to use them in the kitchen instead, to dry my hands.
