These are not the most absorbent--they leave streaks when wiping. I use them for cleaning my espresso machine/accessories, so they're the perfect size. They've held well over several washes and dry quickly.
I bought these for everyday kitchen rags. So far, I love them. Easy to get all soapy and sudzy. I took one out of the bag and immediately soaped it up and washed down the entire kitchen. Get some!
Overall I like these. I was hoping to love them as hand towels because of all my constant hand washing but they are just ok. I do like them a lot for wiping stuff up and cleaning.
