To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought these for my travels to Asia as the air bnb does not provide us with towels. Absorbs very well and compact but people were complaining it had a stink after 3-4 days. I'm pretty sanitary myself and only used it after showers sooooo.......maybe these towels had some scientific chemical reaction to the shower water and caused a stink?
