How Do We Keep Our White Towels White?
Keeping your whites bright and white is one of the most common questions we get asked. Dull white linens never look right and just don’t have that luxurious feel that bright whites tend to have.
Rule #1: Whites ONLY
Never place your white towels in a wash cycle with anything other than white towels. That means no off-white and no beige mixed in.
Rule #2: Wash in Cold Water
It is common to hear instructions to wash your whites in hot water. However we recommend using cold water with your towels as it will help prevent fibres from breaking and help avoid shrinkage of any of the fibres.
Rule #3: Don’t Over Do The Detergent
More detergent does not mean cleaner and whiter towels. So make sure to not over use on your detergent. Excessive detergent can stick to the towel fibres making the towels less absorbent and can take away from their soft feel.
Rule #4: Bleach is a NO
Bleach is a strong chemical that can harm the fibres in your towels. Use household items such as white vinegar instead of bleach. Adding 1/2 a cup of baking soda to your wash cycle and 1/2 a cup of white vinegar to your rinse cycle these additives will replace your need for bleach in a much more organic, healthy and safe way.
