How To Care For Your Towels

Whether your towels are matching or are a colourful collection of styles you’ve acquired over the years, there is something special about getting out of a shower and wrapping up warm. Don’t let incorrect washing or a pull in your towel put a snag in your fluffy bathroom accessory, follow these handy steps below to help keep them looking as good as new.

Washing

We recommend that all towels should be washed before use, and always follow the care instructions included. Keep light and dark washes separate to avoid dulling, and use fabric softener sparingly as it can reduce the absorbency of the towel over time. Tumble drying your towels on a low temperature will fluff up and open the fibres to enhance softness.

Pulls

If your towel develops a pull, trim the loop with a pair of scissors to stop the strand from getting caught and pulled further. If you notice a high number of pulls in your towel, it may be worth checking inside your washing machine or tumble dryer as sometimes a sharp edge inside the drum may catch fibres and cause loops in towels and garments.

Cleaning products

Harsh cleaning products and bleaching agents as well as some toiletries and skin treatments may damage your towels by breaking down the fibres and stripping off the colour. Rinse your skin well after using skincare products before drying off.
