There’s no doubt about the fact that our Turkish towels last for a very ....very long time. They also get softer and more absorbent over time, so don’t hesitate to use them every day! Here are a few things to remember to make sure your towels stay soft and comfy.
1. You don’t have to soak them before first use but...
As you may know by now, Loopys Towels are made from 100% organic cotton and do not include chemicals, synthetic dyes or pesticides. This means they’re perfectly safe to use the first time without washing. But since these towels become softer with use, we suggest that you soak them for a few hours in cold water. This makes them super absorbent and soft! Soaking helps the cotton fibres to expand, helping them absorb water effectively. Hang the towel in a cool place and allow it to air-dry.
2. For subsequent washes...
Since you’ll be using them like any other bath towel, wash them like you would clean ordinary towels! You can either machine wash (with similar colours) or handwash them in cold water. But do not use fabric softeners – the silicone in these softeners can make your towels less absorbent. Since they dry quickly, you won’t notice the musty smell that’s common in other towels. An occasional soak in vinegar would help though! Vinegar helps to remove soap residue and is also a natural fabric softener. As for drying you can put them on a dryer but keep the heat medium or low to retain the softness. And if they’re wrinkled, smooth them out with a warm iron.
3. What if a thread pops out! Ah!
That could happen, but don’t worry! Just cut off the thread that’s popping out with scissors. That pulled thread wouldn’t unravel the loop thanks to the special weaving technique used on our Turkish towels.
