HOW DO YOU CARE FOR YOUR TOWEL?
Follow the steps below and elevate your at-home spa experience to a new level:
Before first use (Optional): To maximize the absorbency of your Turkish towel, soak for overnight or 6-12 hours in water, wring your towel, air dry. Iron optional.
Machine wash COLD only with like colors on gentle cycle. Be sure to launder any stains immediately and rinse thoroughly. Don't use bleach and fabric softeners (while it may sound like an oxymoron, fabric softeners will not make your towels softer and reduce its absorbency.) Line dry. Avoid dry cleaning to preserve the absorbency of your towel. Iron your towels on cotton setting to keep them looking as good as new!
PLEASE NOTE: Since all of our towels are handwoven, the length of each towel might slightly vary. Photos may appear slightly different from the listed item based on your computer, pad, or phone's color display. Because of the handmade nature of our products, minor imperfections may occur. This makes your towel one of a kind and beautiful.
