1 Wash them separately

: Avoid washing towels with items that have zippers, hooks or buttons. These can pull the loops out of the terry cloth.

2 Hang them well

: Hang towels fully extended on the clothes line for ventilation and quick drying between uses. This will mean fewer washes and a longer life for your towels.

3 Don’t pile them in a laundry basket

: Many times we dump moist towels in the laundry basket to wash later. This is a very bad idea because this spreads mould and bacteria.

4 Fully rinse the towels:

If you want to keep your towels soft, use half the recommended amount of detergent and never pour the detergent directly on your towels. And always make sure that you have fully rinsed out the soap after each wash.

5 Don’t over use fabric softener

: Over use of fabric softener can reduce the absorbance of towels. Use it during every second or third rather than every wash cycle.
