Amazon brand good quality soft face towel/handkerchief
Reviewed in India on 30 June 2019
Amazon brand good quality soft face towel or handkerchief - using it as latter as i need to be at a very hot & humid place for a while & coming from a cool city, i sweat buckets here & need a soft towel for use as a handy kerchief to keep swabbing my face & neck - as dry towel or at times soaking it in water (or water + eye dear cologne or gulab-jal/rose-water for extra cool&fresh feel) & wringing off extra water to wipe the face & neck cool or as an eye pad to wet & place over my eyes & sit under my wall/table fan on full blast to cool my eyes tired from all that prenoon sun...
Pros: have tried another brand all these years, of a similar dimension ~30cmx30cm (30cm is ~12 inches & the size of a big ruler/scale) that turned rougher & rougher with each wash until it started hurting the face & i had to convert them into pochcha/mop/wash cloth one by one - they still work on kitchen granite counter tops. Joke is that these AmazonBasics towels are named as wash cloths and i find them of a far superior quality than most face towels i've bought on Amazon - not as fluffy or bulky for a face towel but very soft on the face. Better still, they're getting more softer as i wash them - loving them for this feature the most. This's the vital must-have for me for any cloth that you take to your face - lasting softness. 5 stars right there!
Then the wooze part i.e. how much the towel sheds when washed. That's a con at least initially - it sheds some at least until 4-5washes reducing as we go but sheds all the same. Around the 6t wash or so you find that too becomes nil.
Another small con is that at times threads come out & cant be put back & needs to be cut/bit:-) off & that leaves a thin area. It's not happening with each towel & again i wash all my daily use stuff together daily & the buttons etc on other clothes might have pulled those threads out. Why i mention this is to make the point that i don't give any special care to these towels & just tumble it along with the remaining laundry so some such mishaps could be due to that!
Colour is the color of a faded hibiscus - a deep lavender. No colour bleeding even in the first wash is a huge plus. No fading of the color either. It's a subtle color & find it better to hold as a roll (fold by half & roll & it'll fit in your palms & can be tucked into the side pockets meant for water bottle/umbrella in a regular sling bag) in hand & still go relatively unnoticed & dirt on it too - okay as i wash them daily. For those of us who need the opposite go for brighter colours, all you bold ones, out there, & go for whites super hiegene conscious ones amongst us!
Overall loving the individual item as well the number of items that come in the package - there are so many that i have split them across my home & the rented place away from home where i need to stay & still have a backup cache pile that i plan to use when the ones i use age - not sure when though, as these are aging very gracefully & slowly :-)
Cons if any is the price which for most Amazon brand products is pitched slightly high. Wouldn't complaint in this case as the quality matches the price...
Overall loving the product & would recommend it anyway, especially to pin to younger one's school dresses/shirts, for elderly use or for summer use for all to deal with humidity. Go for it!
