Towel Care

How to Care for Your Organic Cotton Towel
Organic Cotton is a raw and unprocessed material that gets softer and more absorbent with washing and use. We recommend soaking the towel in cold water to bloom the cotton for optimal softness and absorbency.

 

How to bloom your towel:

Thick loop towels should soak in cold water for 24 hours, flat woven should soak for 12 (although longer is always better). After soaking put your towel in the wash on the spin cycle to remove much of the water, then hang dry. If you don’t have space to hang dry you can tumble dry on low. 

Everyday care:

Machine wash cold, with like colours. Tumble dry medium or low.

Do not use bleach or fabric softener as both will damage the fibers and negatively impact absorbency.

For stains, try rubbing a teaspoon of baking soda into the spot (form a paste with a touch of water) and then dab some vinegar on top of the baking soda to lift the stain. We have also had good luck with a mild natural stain remover like this one.

Should a loop snag or become loose on your towel simply snip it off.
