Caring for Towels

We recommend that you always wash towels before use, to remove sizing and residue. The more you wash, the “fluffier” and more absorbent your towels will become!


Care of Towels

Flour Sack Towels: Wash in warm water. Tumble dry low. Iron and bleach as needed. DO NOT use fabric softener - it affects towels’ absorbency.


Separate colored from whites. Bleach white towels as needed.


When ironing cotton, use a hot iron on steam setting for best results. Be aware that ironing colored towels will discolor them temporarily - once they cool, they go back to their original color! 


Smooth freshly dried towels before folding, to prevent wrinkles


Examine towels periodically for loose ends and pulled threads. CLIP, don’t pull loose threads


Rotate linens regularly


Wash aprons in cold water, delicate cycle, and hang to dry


NEVER iron terry towels, as it flattens loops and reduces absorbency


For screen printed towels, wash in warm water and hang to dry to preserve the print.


For Cafe towels, wash in warm water, tumble dry low. Fold immediately to prevent wrinkles


For Dyed towels, wash the first time with like colors. Colors will remain true - no special care needed.
