How to wash towels



Wash a stained towel immediately so that the stain does not smell.




Wash it in a lot of water so as to remove dirt easily. The washing will also eliminate any odors, even if the towel is dried indoors.



To keep the towel from losing its softness, avoid squeezing the towel too hard.



Fabric softener is eective for use with older towels when their surface has hardened. Softener may harm the absorption ability and damage the bers of a new towel. You may want to use an aroma spray.

How to dry towels



Drying towel Image

Untangle the towel before drying. Shake the towel several times in the air. The air will help the towels to dry more quickly and the towels will retain their volume. (And it's good exercise, too.)



After shaking

Gently tumble dry and remove the towel from the dryer immediately.
If you dry the towels outdoors, then dry them in the shade because sunlight has a tendency to harden the fabric of the towel.

How to store towels

Correct storage will extend the life of the towel.


Shake the towels to enhance uness before folding or rolling them and stack them gently in a well-ventilated space. Your towels should maintain their softness and absorbency for a long time.
