Just curious how many people wash their new towels prior to using them for the first time? Is it necessary?

I don't.  I make sure to give them a good SNAP to get the loose fibers out.

If i have a large enough stack to make it worth while, i throw them in the washer. If its just one or two then ill just use them like that.

I dont always wash them, but perhaps throw them in the dryer/tumble only for 20min.
But i also wont use them on a perfect finish Straight from the bag/box.
And if they do shed or streak, you/me/us, cant complain because we knew that going in, that it could be a possibility. Same with scratching, who knows how or where they were made. Or how long they sat before being packaged etc...

The only ones I'd recommend washing are the orange or gray towels. The orange ones especially severely lint, even after a couple washes

I do not do a full wash, but I run them thru a rinse cycle.
