I have very sensitive skin and was skeptical about finding washcloths that are soft and hold up well after numerous washes. . I have washed them in delicate cycle with delicate detergent in cold and warm water and they are still soft as when I first got them. They easily fold back into the nice wrapped shape for great presentation. Great for baby or spa baskets, slightly larger than regular washcloths. The size is just right and it's absorbent. I hope that you try them for your baby as they are so delicate, and try some for your face, too.
