How to take care of your blankets & towels.
Before you put your product in the washing machine for the first time, it is best to soak it in cold water for a few hours. Since the fibers are stretched considerably when cotton is woven, washing in warm water can cause the garment to shrink as a result of the fibers contracting again. However, if you place your cloth in cold water, the fibers swell and retain their length, even if they come into contact with warm water afterwards. This also makes the towels more absorbent and softer with each wash.
After that, when you put your blanket or towel in the washing machine using a gentle program (30 degrees/wool is best) it is best not to use fabric softener, so that the absorbency is maintained (fabric softener is not good for the environment anyway, so get rid of that habit!). Make sure you don't wash your delicate fabrics with clothes they can get tangled with. When drying, it's best to use the good old clothes horse, as this will save energy and keeps your products in good shape in the long run.
