Like all objects meant to last a lifetime, your Turkish towel will need proper care and a little extra maintenance from time to time. Here we share how to regularly care for your pieces, and we address some common Turkish towel issues that you can take care of on your own.
TOWEL MEASUREMENTS: 40"X80"
Some towels may look larger than others based on texture and grain. Linen towels tend to pull along the vertical grain once washed and may appear more narrow, but all towels are woven on the same 40" loom.
For all pieces (except silk!), machine wash and tumble dry low or lay flat to dry. No special detergent needed. No fabric softener, dryer sheets, or bleach! You will find that your Turkish towel will shrink in size a little by using the drier but the payoff is the absorbency. We recommend dry-cleaning to maintain size for towels used as shawls.
REPAIRING A PULLED LOOP
Simply snip the loop to be even with the rest of the loops.
TREATING SPILLS & STAINS
Use any store-bought stain treatment, but be careful to avoid bleach. A paste made with baking soda and vinegar also works wonders and is an all natural way to remove stains.
