Cotton fabrics care tips for longer wear


Care for all cotton products can be very easy if you follow a few basic guidelines:


Steps to having your cotton fabrics last and last:
  1. Always wash cotton fabrics in cold water - no bleach or hot water.  Please use separate laundry detergent and separate fabric softener as not to set stains into the fabric.  The best stain remover is OxiClean™  or White Brite™. The use of white vinegar can sometimes help with perspiration stains, helps whiten fabrics, and kills germs.  The use of bleach is not recommended.  It will cause the material to develop small pin holes, colors to change and fade, and decrease the life of the cotton fabric.
  2. For petroleum stains from boating or general dirt, use dish washing detergent right into the stain, rub it in, and wash normally.  This can help to lift the stain during the wash cycle.  Repeat if necessary, but most of the stains will come out the very first time.
  3. Be careful using teeth bleaching toothpaste and mouthwash, even a little spot can bleach the cotton material.  
  4. Use a gentle wash cycle instead of a Super wash cycle on the wash machine.
  5. Any thin fabric you might want to hand wash for longer life.  The thicker the material, the longer the all cotton fibers will last.  
  6. Reduce the amount of time and lower the heat in the dryer.

To get the most absorbent towels:  Another quick tip in buying your towels that will be absorbent bath after bath.  Buy carded cotton instead of combed cotton, the lesser grade of cotton will be more absorbent because the fibers have not been combed out of the cotton and there are more fibers to grab the moisture.
