How many people love soft towels? I’m a huge fan of my soft towels, but sometimes it’s hard to care for them. I wanted to share some tips for caring for towels. Everyone wants their towels to last longer, so you might as well follow these tips.
Start with a Good Towel
Rendered in soft, super-absorbent Annur cotton finished with a clean woven pattern at the hem, the Premier bath towel collection from Hotel Collection provides the ultimate in luxury bathroom appointments.
Available exclusively at Macy’s for $16-$39 per towel. Once you find a good towel, you just stick with it! They’re softer and bigger than a lot of towels that I’ve purchased over the years!
Wash towels before you use them
When you buy new towels, make sure you wash the towels before you use them. Towels have dye on them and it can get everywhere if you’re not careful. By washing and drying the towels before you use them, you are preventing the dye from going everywhere.
Don’t wash towels after one use
The best thing about towels is that you can use them more than once before you wash again. You don’t have to wash those towels every single time you use them. Use them 3-4 times and then wash them.
Wash in like colors together
This is especially true when you first wash towels, you want to wash the like colors together. You want to keep the like colors together, so the dye doesn’t bleed on each other. Once the towels have been washed separately, you can then wash them all at one time. This is better anyways for sanitary purposes. Towels have lots of “you never know what” germs on them.
Shake the towels before putting them in the dryer
Want wrinkle free towels? Make sure you shake the towels before you put them in the dryer. This helps to get rid of the wrinkles and makes your towels dry faster because they aren’t wrapped up in each other.
Use vinegar to get rid of mildew smell in towels
Have you ever had a musty smell in towels, but aren’t sure how to get it out? You can put the vinegar in the fabric softener part of the washer. This will release the vinegar at just the right time and help to get rid of the musty smell. Musty towels are never any fun, so give this tip a try.
Follow these tips and your towels will be soft, clean, and looking awesome for many years to come. Towels can be expensive, so you want to take care of them the best of your ability.
I’m thrilled to be giving a set of Hotel Collection Premier Bath Towel Collection to one lucky winner!
