Wash towels BY THEMSELVES before first use and DON’T USE LIQUID
FABRIC SOFTENER (see below) on the first or any subsequent washings. Dryer cloths
may be used in the dryer after several washings to prevent static.
New Towel Instructions (long version):
1) Wash the towels with detergent two times by themselves, without
other clothes, in warm water. In the rinse cycle (preferably warm) add
approximately 1 cup of white distilled vinegar that has either been diluted in
a pitcher, or pour vinegar in the wash tub only after the rinse water level has
filled up. ***NEVER
add liquid fabric softener to washER.
fabric softener is one of the worst things you can do on a new towel because
fabric softeners coat the surface of the terry with chemicals that make the
fabric hydrophobic. Meaning the towel will REPEL water instead of absorbing it
which will lessen towels ability to dry you off.
2) After the second wash, place the towels in the dryer WITHOUT
fabric softener cloths. The towels may have some static, but they will be
3) Although not recommended, you can use your towels first without
washing them, but they will be less absorbent. This is due to the finishing
process at the mill. However after you wash them a few times, the absorbency
will return to normal and the towels will be softer too. And you may use fabric
softening CLOTHS in the drier to prevent static cling. You may notice some
minor color“bleeding” as excess dye is
washed away. THIS IS NORMAL.
AGAIN: NO FABRIC SOFTENING LIQUID IN THE WASHER!
4) Here’s another helpful hint: If you hang your towels to dry
over a shower curtain rod, make the sure the shower curtain rings/hangers don’t
have sharp edges or hooks which can snag towels and create runs in the fabric. Yes, we learned this the hard way.
