The best bath towels are towels that are soft. They add to the pleasure of a bath or shower. However, not all towels feel good against the body and nice to the touch. What are 5 ways to get soft towels?

1. Wash your towels before the first use. If you choose material that is of the highest quality, this step may not be necessary.

2. Avoid fabric softeners. They leave a waxy residue which interferes with the quality and softness of the material.

3. Place your towels in the dryer after each wash. Hanging towels on the line typically does not create a soft result.

4. Choose top quality cotton, such as Egyptian or Supima. Avoid synthetic material, because this type of material is not as soft as good quality cotton. You will also find that towels, such as Egyptian cotton towels, get softer with each wash.

5. Choose heavier towels for softer towels. Once again, this is where quality matters.

Bamboo Robe

Anyone who owns a Turkish bathrobe will certainly rave about the quality. Turkey is known for these fabulous treats, made as far back as the middle ages. The region of Denizli is renowned for these items.

One of the reasons to consider a Turkish bathrobe is because these are robes valued in high class hotels and spas. Treating yourself to this product makes your own bath experience that much better.

These are robes that will keep you warm while also absorbing most of the water. You are not left with a soggy, cold bathrobe.

Pay attention to the way you wash the item. Although these are sturdy robes, you’ll want to protect them. Read the label. It is better, with most quality robes, to hang them to dry rather than throw them in the dryer.

Consider a longer Turkish bathrobe to wrap in after a bath or shower. These robes are so cozy, you won’t regret your decision or the money you spent.

If you are not considering one of these robes for yourself, how about as a gift? The robes make perfect holiday or birthday gifts. Choose a color that would best suit your recipient, but that will go well in their bathroom. Some people choose to hang their bathrobe in their bathroom in clear view.

bath towels

Clean, soft bath towels are items we crave after a hot shower or bath. However, we don’t always get what we crave if our towels are not washed properly or of poor quality.

Here are top 5 tips for caring for bath towels.

1. Don’t Hang Dry

You will need to avoid hanging your towels on the line, and instead, put your towels in the dryer for at least thirty minutes. Although hanging your towels on the line is most energy efficient and least expensive, it doesn’t make for a soft towel.

2. No Fabric Softeners

Avoid fabric softeners. Too much of this product creates less absorbent towels. Absorbency is part of what you want with a soft towel. Wash your towels periodically with vinegar to strip away built up fabric softener.

3. Don’t Overfill Your Wash

Stuffing too many towels in your washer is a bad idea. Your towels will wash evenly and then dry evenly if they have room to move around in the wash.

4. Shake, Use Medium Heat and Fluff

Take your towels out of the washer and shake them a couple times before putting them in the dryer. It is important to dry your towels on medium heat, not high heat. Fluff your towels before you fold them.

5. Start with Good Quality

It is easier to care for bath towels when you buy superior quality towels to begin with. Splurge on Supima, Egyptian or Turkish cotton towels for the best towels. In addition, these towels are not only soft when you buy them, but they get softer with each wash.
