Guide: Washing new towels
When you buy towels from Moodings, you're buying quality that will last a very long time, provided you take care of the towels. This starts, of course, with "pre-washing" them properly, so that the towels achieve their optimal absorbency, and get the optimal conditions to last as long as possible.
When you receive your towels from Moodings, you should do the following before using them:
Start by soaking the towels for 24 hours. The water should be cold!
Then wash the towels at 60 degrees to both bind the colours and remove bacteria. You don't need to use fabric softener, in fact you should avoid it.
Finally, dry the towels. For best results, use the tumble dryer to make your towels completely soft. Of course, you can also hang them to dry, but towels tend to get a bit stiffer from that.
How to keep your towels colourfast
Most people are familiar with the somewhat sad trend of your towels losing some of their strength and shine over time. Typically this happens after the towels have been washed a number of times, where they just quietly lose much of the beautiful colour that was perhaps one of the key reasons they were bought in the first place.
So what can you do to keep your towels looking their best? First of all, it's a good idea to soak your towels in cold water for 24 hours. This should be done right after you buy them, before you use them.
After the towels have been in the cold water for 24 hours, they just need to be washed once and then they are ready to be used.
If the towels are dark, you can do the same as above, but add a little vinegar to the water. Not only does this help the colour stay in place, it also improves the towel's absorbency.
How to keep your towels soft
There's nothing quite like a hot bath. But as nice as it can be to be in the bath, it can be just as uncomfortable to have to dry yourself with a stiff, hard towel that's well past its soaking days.
The reason many towels just get harder and harder over time is simply that the fibres in the fabric break down more and more over time when you don't take care to dry the towels as gently as possible.
But how do you dry your towels most gently? A good tip is to shake your towels well and thoroughly before throwing them in the dryer. This ensures that any lint and other surface dirt is removed before drying.
In addition, you can also make use of a clever trick involving tennis balls. By putting a few tennis balls in your dryer, your towels will get a lot of beating during drying, which helps the towels retain their soft texture.
Last but not least, it's also important to take a critical look at how much detergent or fabric softener you use when washing your towels. While you obviously want clean and fragrant towels, it's a bad idea to use too much soap and fabric softener.
Although fabric softener and detergent make towels clean and fragrant, they also have the disadvantage of making the texture of the towel stiff, as well as absorbing less water.
