Turkish Towel Care

Caring for your Turkish Towel

Don’t worry they aren’t high maintenance, but by giving them a little time, they’ll basically last forever!
The more you wash and use your towels, the softer and more absorbent they become.

Washing:

 To maximise absorbency, wash your towel before use.
Wash on cold, or if the towel is exposed to oil, soil or germs; wash in warm water.
Select a gentle spin cycle (less than 800 spins per minute), higher spins are unforgiving for the tassels & can cause them to unravel.
Avoid fabric softeners. Softeners will make the towels water repellent.
Tip: to maximize the absorbency of your towels, add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle once a month. This will restore your towels to full absorbency. The vinegar will remove excess detergent & oil that builds up after successive washing.
Do not bleach.

Drying:

We recommended air drying for best results.
Tumble dry on a cool to medium setting, tumble drying will make your towel fluffier, but the heat from the dryer can damage the durability of the cotton over time.

Ironing:

Regular ironing, steam or dry, can be performed at a medium setting. Ironing at high temperatures may damage the cotton fibers, decreasing the softness and lifespan of your towel.

A Pull or Snag:

If your towel has snagged and pulled out a loop or thread, simply cut the thread/loop off  using a pair of scissors. This will not unravel the towel.

Tassel Care & Maintenance:

All tassels on our towels are hand twisted & tied and over time may begin to unravel. This is not a fault in your Towel. These can be easily knotted by making two sections and twisting each section clockwise until fully twisted. Then, take each section and wrap them around each other in an anti-clockwise direction until fully twisted around each other.
Simply finish the process by knotting the end.

Please Note: Colour variances in our Turkish Towels is considered normal. This is due to the natural dying process & multiple dying batches.
