There are many different qualities of terry towels. With the inexpensive variety, you may find impossible to keep them soft and plush.
With better quality towels, which is in fact our case, this can be easily done and taking a few extra steps and precautions can add years of life to them.
Here is how you should take care of your 100% cotton luxury Snug Hug Terry towels
Ideally, towels should be laundered every 3 to 4 days, depending on the use and environment. You know that towels absorb water, but they also absorb skin dander, body oils & soap residue,
Don’t forget to wash your new towels before using them. The cotton yarns are often coated with starch, used to stiffen the yarn so the fabric can be woven faster.
Separate colors, avoid harsh detergents and bleach derivatives. Bleach will lighten your colored towels.
Use a mild detergent.
Now here’s how you should wash and dry your Snug Hug bath towels:
- Use water at no more than 40º
- Add your detergent , but take good note:
- Concentrated detergent can discolor colored towels.
- Set new dark colored towels with 1 cup of white vinegar in the wash.
- Most towels don’t get real dirty, so consider using ½ to ¾ the normal amount of laundry detergent.
- If your towels have become dingy looking or musty smelling, add 1/4 cup of baking soda to the wash cycle.
- No fabric softener or drier sheets with towels. These products contain silicone that coats the cotton fiber and impedes absorbency.
- Dry your towels on a low to medium heat. Tumbling towels in the drier makes them softer than line drying. If you line dry them, do it on a breezy day so the towels have an opportunity to be agitated in the wind.
- Do not let them set in the drier once dry, they can pick up wrinkles. However, unlike other cotton fabrics, most of these wrinkles can be hand-pressed.
- Once dry, hand press.
Amazing: that’s what it takes to keep your Snug towels perfect!
