Towels Leaving Lint On Your Body

New towel woes! I bought new black towels and a cheap black bath mat a little over a month ago and everything in my bathroom is covered in black fuzz. When I take a shower and use the towels I look like Chewbacca! I've washed the towels and the bath mat upwards of 15 times. Am I doing something wrong? Or is it the towels? Please help.

I agree with one of the archived posts, you need to use the dryer to pull off the loose lint. They are not poor quality they are good quality if they are making so much fluff.
There is also an issue with their being black as you are probably noticing the lint more than you might with other colours.
The lint will go away if you can stand the wait.

I bought a housecoat for my mother and some fleece throws for nieces/nephews at Christmas a few years back and they did the same thing. I read the label later and it said to wash in cold water.


Don't know if that was the problem or not but I threw out my son's after about 6 washings and the thing shed all over the carpets all the time. This is what we get when we buy from China, great quality!
