Towels, their maintenance
A towel is a textile product designed to wipe your hands, face or whole body after showering. Towels include woven, non-woven and knitwear.
UAB "Namų tekstilė" produces high quality towels since 2003 only from natural fiber yarns - cotton, bamboo and linen. Depending on the type of yarn, UAB "Namų tekstilė" brand towels are made of two-sided loop weave (cotton and bamboo) or waffle-surfaced (linen).
100% cotton or cotton with bamboo looped yarn towels (also called terry) and linen towels perfectly absorb moisture, are soft and durable.
When choosing towels, it's always worth paying attention to their quality - it's better to buy a thicker, such as a 500 g/m2 towel density. Thicker towels absorb moisture better and without losing their color and aesthetic appearance are used much longer.
Technical characteristics of UAB "Namų tekstilė" towels
- Composition of raw material - combed cotton, cotton with bamboo, linen.

Towel care general recommendations
For washable towels we recommend not to put too much softener, especially if the towels contain silicone. The non-washed residue of the softener is accumulated in the towel fabric, which means that after several washings the towels can become hard and rough. In this case, we suggest adding a glass of white vinegar, which will help wash out all of the previous residues and restore the softness and gentleness of the towels.
No starch or bleaching is required during washing; starch roughs the material, and the bleach damages the towel loops, so after several washings the towels can become hard and rough.
Towels can be dried in the dryer - they will become soft and fluffy, especially terry ones. If the towels are dried outdoors, avoid direct sunlight because in the long run the sun fades out the colors of the most resistant color dyeing technology. By the way, bleached linen exposed to direct sunlight can turn yellow. Dried towels in the wind smell as natural fresh air.
