Care of Organic Towels and Bathrobes
Organic towels need only simple care. They should be washed regularly (in fact the first few washes will improve the quality of the towels as they remove the natural waxy residues from the organic cotton fibers for greater softness and absorbency.). Wash with other similar fabrics to ensure that the cotton pile does not get worn and flattened. Ideally organic towels should be washed in soft water, or in hard water areas using a water softener. Minimal environmentally friendly detergent or an organic option such as soap balls should be used in the wash, and fabric softeners should be avoided as they contain silicones which can reduce the absorbency of the cotton fibers. After washing, organic towels should be shaken while wet to free up the fiber, and shaken again when dry for the same reason.
