CARE - Top tips for washing bath towels
Dreaming of creating your very own at-home spa? Nothing says relax like a stack of soft, warm bath towels fresh out of the tumble dryer. Our bath towels see us through rushed morning showers and relaxing after-work baths - but used on the daily, they can quickly become a hub for microbes and bacteria. Unsurprisingly, it’s essential to wash your bath towels and bath sheets regularly, at the right temperature and using the right settings. Read on for our expert tips.
Taking care of your bath towels
Mould, microbes and bacteria love warm, damp areas like our bathrooms, where they often spread to bath towels, hand towels and bathmats. To keep things clean and to avoid unpleasant odors, it’s important to regularly wash your bath sets and bath linen at least once per week, ideally twice.
To make sure your bath towels stay clean for longer, don’t wait until they look or smell dirty to wash them! Here are a few simple tips:
Separate light and coloured textiles and wash according to the label.
Wash your bath towels between 40°C and 60°s, with or without fabric softener.
Don’t wash your bath linen on a high spin cycle - a 1200 spin cycle is ideal.
Avoid tumble-drying soft cotton bath towels.
Wherever possible, try to dry your bath towels outside in the open air rather than in the dryer. Most important of all, dry your towels immediately after washing them to avoid musty smells. For persistent stains, soak the fabric in distilled white vinegar before washing.
