The Care & Keeping Of Towels

The Care & Keeping Of Towels

See our quick and painless tips for keeping your towels fresh, soft and absorbent! 

Note: We do recommend using The Laundress laundry products for the ultimate fresh towel experience! 

Our Towel Tips:

  • Towels go with other towels. By washing towels with only towels, you keep velcro and zippers away! Those things can wreak havoc on our beautiful products.

  • Small loads rule. Say what?! I know that this one is tough to read because we like to do laundry as quickly as possible. That means, stuff as much in the washer and dryer as possible and hope for the best. Yet, large loads are difficult to dry completely. And, air doesn’t circulate well in cramped dryers, leaving the fibers in your towels matted down and crunchy—not fluffy and soft. The lesson here--quality over quantity. 

  • The amount of detergent matters. Use too much detergent, and your towels become less absorbent. Follow the directions recommended on the bottle because detergent residue not only affects absorbency but also can lead to bacteria and mold build up when detergent is not washed out thoroughly. 

  • Vinegar: If you suspect build up, add 1 cup of white vinegar to the wash cycle to remove residue left from hard water or soaps.

  • Towels go with other towels. By washing towels with only towels, you keep velcro and zippers away! Those things can wreak havoc on our beautiful products.

  • Fabric softeners are a no-no. It’s because of the residue build-up. Instead of softening your towels, the residue from the liquid can mat down the cotton fibers, leaving your towels less absorbent.

  • Fluff, fluff, and more fluff. As you move your towels from the washer to the dryer, fluff them. This returns some of the body to the loops and helps your towels be more absorbent and softer in the long run.

  • Low is better than high. Dry your towels on a low setting to keep from damaging the fibers. Like Drying Tip #1, this one is hard to do. We must fight against our natural tendencies to speed dry in order to ensure long-lasting, fluffy towels.

  • Think in 3s. Wash your towels every 3rd use or every 3 days. Hand towels are the exception. They should be used only one day before relegated to the hamper.
