Keep your towels soft and durable: tips for effective care

Towels are essential items in our home, but as we use and wash them, they tend to become rough and lose their softness. Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to keep your towels softer longer and reduce the frequency of washing. Here are some useful tips:

Wash at low temperature.

The temperature of the water influences the texture of the towels. To prevent them from becoming rough, it is advisable to wash them at a low temperature. A wash cycle at 40°C is enough to clean them properly and maintain the fabric fibers without damaging them. In addition, washing at low temperatures is also more economical and environmentally friendly. All our soaps work at low temperatures.

If your towels have lost that white color that you like so much, we recommend letting them soak with our Oxygen Booster Nº04 . Exceptionally, for washing, raise the washing temperature a little to 50º. Put a dose of No. 04 in the box and use our No. 13 laundry soap for washing. You will be surprised by the result.

Moderate the use of detergent or soap

It is important not to exceed the amount of detergent or soap used when washing towels. Using too much detergent or soap won't make them cleaner, but it can leave residue on the fibers and make them rough. Use the amount recommended by the manufacturer and avoid overloading the washing machine drum for a more efficient wash.

Dry properly

Drying also plays an important role in maintaining the softness of towels. It is recommended to use the dryer, as this method will leave them fluffier and more flexible. For an even better effect, place pure merino wool dryer balls between the towels when putting them in the washing machine. This will help them retain their fluffiness. If you don't have a dryer, you can air dry them and then iron them in steam mode to restore their softness.

Use of natural products

Fabric softener can affect the absorbency of towels, so it is recommended to avoid using it. Instead, you can use natural alternatives such as white vinegar, which acts as a descaler and softener. You can add a cup of white vinegar to the washing machine drum during the rinse cycle for softer towels and eliminate bad odors. Lemon juice can also be used in a similar way, as it helps soften the fibers and eliminate unwanted odors. Our laundry soaps DO NOT NEED fabric softener

Be careful with hard water

If you live in an area with hard water, limescale buildup may be one of the main culprits in your towels becoming rough. In this case, installing a water softener can be an effective solution. In addition to keeping your towels soft, it will also extend the life of your washing machine and other appliances.

Summary

Remember that these tips will not only help you keep your towels softer for longer, but will also reduce the frequency of washing, which will contribute to more sustainable consumption and save resources. Enjoy the softness and comfort of your towels for longer with these simple care!
