Hi, I have hand towels from Lands End which are soft and fluffy but leave bits of lint on my face, which is really annoying when I put on my skin care products.  Does anyone have suggestions, or maybe a brand that doesn't leave lint on your face?  Any suggestions much appreciated.  Thank you!

I use the Biltmore House towels from Belk.  They're fluffy, wash well, and leave no lint.

 

Sounds like you may have a quality issue, even from Lands End.  It can happen.

@bnf46 Sorry- can't help with yoour lint problem, but the Property Brothers' hygro cotton face cloths are wonderful, and they are clearance priced.

Give them several washings to solve this.

I buy my towels at a thrift store where I volunteer. I hate those extra thick and way way too big new sizes that is all you can find in retail. None of them hold lint.

I've been using Martha Stewart towels from Macy's since my child first left for college. I always wash & dry towels 2-3 times before I use them, so lint hasn't been a problem.

I use microfiber hand towels and washcloths.
