View Full Version : Pilling on GC Ultra Plush Terry

Apr 5th, 2005, 09:47 AM
I bought 4 of the Ultra Plush Terry Towels at PepBoys last week. They have been remodeling so everything was dusty, so I washed them before using them. (The package says prewashed and ready to use)

I washed them in warm water with liquid detergent (I use Costco's no-dye no-perfume soap). When I pulled them out of the washer there were clumps of lint, I removed them and then machine dried on medium heat.

When I pulled the towels out of the drier, they are covered in little pills. The pills make for hard spots on an otherwise very soft towel. I am worried that these pills will cause scratching? Did I do something incorrectly in my washing? Or is this normal and will not cause a problem? The towels we were using at the Detail Day saturday did were not like this.

Hi Brian,

I spoke with the Product Manager for this product as well as Customer Care and so far no one has heard or seen this.

I'll look into it some more.

That looks like just some of the loops came undone in the towel. I doubt that would scratch the paint. But I would test on just a small area to be sure.
