The main rule to remember: terry clothes should never be washed with washing powder.
It often happens that the terry towels in the hotel are soft and fluffy, and at home they feel like sandpaper. To prevent this from happening, you need to follow simple washing rules. In this way, it will be possible to avoid overdrying and extend the service life of terry products, informs UkrMedia.
The main rule to remember: terry clothes should never be washed with the addition of washing powder. Otherwise, you risk getting prickly and unpleasant towels, it will not be easy to return the terry fabric to its former properties.
Wash terry towels with the addition of gel, not powder. Washing gel will cope with the task best, it will gently clean towels. Try not to put towels in the washing machine with other laundry, it is best to collect only terrycloth items in a week and wash them all together. For a full load, pour 100-120 ml of gel.
Table salt will help get rid of dirt and restore softness to towels. Avoid using conditioner. Under its influence, the terry fabric loses its ability to quickly absorb moisture, and it will simply be impossible to wipe with such a towel. To thoroughly wash and soften the fabric, add a few tablespoons of salt when loading things into the drum. If you are worried that salt can harm the mechanism of the washing machine, you can pre-soak a towel in a basin for a couple of hours in a salt solution, and then wash it in the washing machine in normal mode.
And a few more tips. Wash in the daily wash mode at a temperature of 60 degrees, but reducing the spin to 400. Be sure to add an additional rinse. Put special rubber balls in the washing machine, they loosen the pile, the towels will be lighter. And so that towels of different colors do not fade, do not forget to put special napkins (you can find them in the store or make them yourself).
Rubber balls for washing will help loosen the lint. It is important to dry towels on the balcony or on the dryer, but in no case not on the battery. Do not iron dry towels, no matter how much you want to, remember that an iron is the enemy of soft pile.
