There’s nothing like a soft, fluffy Towels to hug your body after a hot shower. We use our Towels daily; it’s one of the main rituals of the morning. So, good Towels should feel soft and luxurious on your skin. It should warm you up and make you feel like a million bucks when you use it. Here are a few tips on how to select the best cotton towels for your particular needs, because not all towels are created equal. Absorbency of the towel is one of the most important factors when selecting a towel. A good bath towel is one that is very thick, soft and absorbent--one that dries you completely when you step out of the bathtub or shower.
Higher Absorbent Towels
Each cotton towel is composed of loops within the weave. These loops in the fabric allow the towel to absorb water. The number of loops determines the drying ability. So, more loops means higher absorbency. And towels made with loops of thick yarns are more absorbent. How the loop is twisted also affects absorbency. “Zero twist” towels are very soft to the touch. “Soft Twist” towels are more durable than “Zero Twist” towels. Fabric softeners contain silicon that will prevent the towels from absorbing water. In order to restore the absorbency of any towel, you should add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle of your wash once a month in order to restore the towel to its full absorbency. The vinegar will help remove the excess detergent, which can affect the towels’ ability to absorb moisture.
