I have had these towels since late April 2022, and I have washed them a handful of times using hot water, Tide, and on the gentle cycle. To this day, they still shed horribly. I have to check the dryer multiple times to clean the lint trap because it gets clogged. When I dry my hands on the hand towels, you can see the cloud of fuzz in the air. Also, I have had to trash one wash cloth since it turned from white to yellow and felt like sandpaper on my skin. Another is on the way to being trashed. I have only had these towels since April and now the wash clothes are becoming trash worthy. Very poor quality; I thought Hotel Collection was supposed to be Macy's elite towel brand. I will have to start shopping someplace else for my towels.
