Turkish towels are a luxury item and are becoming increasingly popular as people upscale their homes and the types of linens they use. They're known for their softness, absorbency, and durability. But like any other piece of cloth, they need to be cared for properly in order to work well and last a long time. Here are a few tips on how to care for your Turkish towels.
Turkish towels can be machine washed and dried. Wash on a cold/cool setting with like colors and tumble dry or dry on low heat to prevent shrinking. One important thing to remember is to never use fabric softener on your Turkish towels. Softener coats the towel and blocks it from being as absorbent as it should be and can be difficult to wash off. Always remember to check your detergent before washing to make sure it doesn’t already have softener in it.
The long cotton fibers on these towels give them durability and softness but don’t expect them to be soft right out of the package! Long haired cotton needs to be broken in and the towels will become even softer with each wash. We typically see towels at their optimum softness level after 5-6 washes.
Following these simple tips will ensure that your Turkish towel lasts for years to come! Enjoy using them as a luxurious addition to your home décor.
