1. We recommend that you wash your towels with detergent and 1/2 cup of White Vinegar before using them for the first time. The White Vinegar will help set the dyes in your towel and keep the colors more resilient. Continue to use the White Vinegar every third wash or so to help remove hard water and chemical buildup that your detergent may leave behind on your towels.
2. If you use a clothes drier, select the Warm Setting as a hot dryer setting can damage parts of your towel and ultimately affect it absorbency. Note however that storing damp towels can invite mildew growth, so be sure the towels are completely dry before you put them away.
3. Air drying your towels away from direct sunlight is the best way to dry towels as the heat from a dryer is hard on towels and it leaves them smelling fresh and save you some money on your next utilities bill.
4. Cut loose threads as you spot them. Just as a sweater unravels, a towel can unravel or look shabby as it catches on things and loose threads appear.
5. Avoid contact with household products such as household cleaners and avoid contact with cosmetics and face washes that often contain chemicals such as benzoyl peroxide. These items may stain your towels and some face wash and cleaners may bleach or lighten areas they come in contact with. You may want to consider using an older towel or washcloth to remove makeup.
6. To avoid "pilling" , the little cotton fluff balls often seen on towels, we recommend that you only launder towels together. When short fabric fibers rub together with long fibers of bath towels, they cause the towel fibers to bunch and create pills which will then remain on your body after drying yourself.
