New relationships can be hard work. They need time, patience and understanding 💕
That's why we've made a cheat sheet to help you keep the love alive when washing your brand-new towels 🧖
Start off fresh
We're all searching for a healthy relationship. That's why it's so important to get the balance right ⚖
Too much detergent will cover your lovely new towels with a soapy residue, and this can impact your long-term relationship by making them far less absorbent ☁
You’re also wasting your detergent, and this is neither cost effective nor eco-friendly 🌱
The last thing you want is to go too hot and heavy with your new loves 💖
Hot water drastically reduces the amount of time you'll be able to spend together, as it destroys your towels' fibers and makes them far less fluffy.
Since we all love a soft touch, go gentle with your towels and wash them in cold water. This will prevent shrinkage, colour fading and will better remove stains.
Never use bleach. It stains and damages the structure of the fabric.
Turn up the heat
Love the warm and fuzzy feeling of a new relationship?
So do we 🤗
To keep this feeling for longer, turn up the heat when drying your new towels by hanging them out on the line. The sun will help keep your towels fluffy and absorbent, while the natural breeze will add a lovely fresh scent.
Say no to open relationships
Always wash your towels separately from other garments – rough fabrics like denim, as well as garment details like zippers and clasps, can cause pilling.
You should also never share your towel. This increases your chances of coming into contact with microbes that heighten your risk of acne, boils or other skin irritants and infections. Monogamy with your very own towel is the safest path.
Things should never be left to fester and addressing issues straight away is always for the best.
Damp towels breed bacteria and fungi, so it's important to hang your towel up right after you've finished drying off. You should also wash them either once a week or after every three to five uses.
If you experience body acne or other skin conditions, you may want to wash your towels more frequently as this can help reduce breakouts.
If you follow these relationship rules, you'll have a longer and more healthy relationship with your towels. Don't forget to follow us for more tips and tricks over @Canningvalelove
