Lovers of cotton bath products are on the look out for premium cotton, such as Egyptian or Supima. Premium cotton is better than conventional due to its strength, absorbency and softness, a feeling that becomes even softer after each washing. These towels cost more, but because of their quality, the price is worth it.
Another cotton in the premium category is Turkish cotton. Turkish cotton is a cotton with long fibers, and most are grown in the Aegean area of Turkey.
What is the best way to care for products, such as bath towels or bathrobes, made from Turkish cotton? Wash the towels in warm water with laundry detergent. The best laundry detergent for this type of cotton is natural laundry soap or detergent that is not filled with chemicals. Do not use fabric softener.
With towels, it’s best to place them in the dryer, but feel free to use a lower setting than high. A hint, put a cup of white vinegar in your rinse cycle once a month. The vinegar will remove excess detergent.
