5 Tips to Care for your Towels

With some simple care our towels will look and feel great for a long, long time.

*Washing detergent reccomendations Australia: Our local favourite is Hudstone Home. Our pick from the major supermarkets would be the Ecostore range. Also browse your local health store, we like plastic free Earthwise.

1. Wash 1-2 times per week or every few uses.

This prevents build up of bath and body products which can end up weighing down your towel and stopping the cotton from being as absorbent as it was made to be. 

2. Select a warm wash cycle

Our towels can withstand anything from cold - 60'C. Opt for warmer washes if you use face or body products with oils in them 

3. Use a washing detergent that does NOT contain whiteners, brighteners or softeners

Fridah uses OEKO-TEX® certified yarn and cotton for our towelling as a minimum standard. This label certifies that every component of the product has been tested against a list of up to 350 toxic chemicals. If this sounds like it is of importance to you we highly reccomend checking the ingredients of your washing detergents and opt for more natural detergents wherever possible*. 

4. Hang outside in shade and then finish of in a warm dryer

Don't be afraid of a gentle tumble! It can be key in keeping towels soft (and can be a good tip if you're experiencing any initial shedding)

5. Cut off any loose threads regularly

It is only natural for looped terry towelling to get the odd pull or loose thread. Simply snip it off close to the base with some sharp scissors and get back to it!
