  • Wash towels prior to use.  This assists removal of excess fluff and improves absorbency.
  • Avoid washing powders that contain bleaching agents.  Dissolve all washing products in the water before adding the towels.
  • Wash individual colours separately.  
  • Dark coloured towels can be washed with a handful of cooking salt to assist the dye to set. 
  • Never soak, bleach or boil towels.
  • Fabric softener builds up a “waxy” coating on the towels which reduces their absorbency therefore its best not to use it when washing your towels.
  • Rinse towels well to remove build up of detergent.
  • Use a cold or warm wash, never hot.
  • If possible tumble dry for the first few washes. This will  help remove excess fluff.
  •  Adding ¼ cup diluted vinegar to the rinse cycle helps reduce fluff and improve absorbency. 
  • Avoid drying in full sun, this can make towels fade and become stiff.  
  • Some hand cleaners contain essential oils which can harm the towels, rinsing well after using the cleaner will avoid damaging them.
