I keep a towel on the seat of each of my kitchen chairs to safeguard the chairs against spills. My daughter has always said the practice is tacky; but her assessment doesn't fit these towels. I just remodeled my kitchen and wanted to refresh the chairs, too, with a coordinating color. I bought the grey towels, and they go perfectly with my color scheme. I'm happy to have four extra towels on hand to use as replacements when one or another is soiled. I wouldn't have thought to buy eight towels at once, but getting eight at one reasonable price was a great bonus. I washed the towels before putting them on the chairs, and they came out almost wrinkle-free,The towels are a great value; I dare my daughter to say they look tacky!
