Prior to first-time use, wash towels with similar colors in plenty of water to avoid fading and shedding lint onto other laundry articles. Using mild detergents and avoiding chlorine bleach and brightening agents will help protect towel fibers from damage.
Avoid fabric softeners as much as possible. Chemicals contained in many fabric softeners weaken towel fibers, lead to shedding, and decrease absorbency. Use only when you feel your towels are getting stiff.
When machine drying, drying until completion will help maintain the towel’s volume and softness. Drying dark-colored towels at high temperatures may cause wax contained in color-stabilizers to melt, leading to a decrease in softness and absorbency.
When hang drying, pat and shake towels lightly to keep surface fibers soft and feathery. Avoid direct sunlight and hang-dry in areas with proper airflow.
Pile loops that characterize the towels can easily get caught with other objects and become loose. When this happens, avoid pulling on the loose string and cut the fiber at its base with scissors. Wash towels in a laundry net is recommended whenever possible.
