Yes, if you don't wash them they won't dry you and you'll just end up wet and covered in fluff.

Yes wash them but do not use fabric conditioner - it reduces absorbancy.

Also tumble dry them as this will make them nice and fluffy and soft.

I would use them straight away TBH. I do enough laundry without adding clean stuff grin

Yup - we run a B&B and I bought new towels late last year - washed them four times before using, they've been washed many times since, and they are still discarding fluff - and these are v expensive egyptian cotton. And the bits get all over the floor so I have to hoover properly grin

If you don't you'll regret it when you're covered in fluff (experience talking!) grin
