Wash care instructions for Towels
We recommend that your new towel purchase should be washed before use.Always follow the washing instructions placed on the label of the towel. If there is a stray pulled loop on the towel, cut off with a pair of scissors. This will not cause any damage to the towel. Richard Haworth suggest using detergent specifically for coloured towels and to avoid brightening detergents as this will affect thte towel colour. Richard Haworth Towels can be washed at 50ºC.
A harsh texture to towels and bathrobes and an off-white colour are signs of bleach damage. It is best to avoid bleaching agents when washing towels. Bathroom detergents and some beauty products such as cleansers contain bleaching agents and may cause permanent discolouration to your towel. Washing too hot can cause the bars on the towels to shrink. Fabric conditioner will reduce the absorbency of the towel, as it coats the yarn of the towel making it less efficient.Do not dry clean towels.
