We use these in our bathroom. The description and the case say they are white, they are a very light tan, not white. They also barely dry an adult pair of hands, and finally, the folds didn't match up halfway through the ream - we had to flip the towels over to have the "C" side show for picking them up. Can't argue about the price, though - probably won't buy them again, anyway.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
