Why are Havlu Sport towels better than regular beach towels?
Havlu Sport Turkish towels are designed to be used daily and get softer and more absorbent with each wash. The perfect year-round towel, they dry very quickly, resist mildew and need to be laundered less often.
Is there anything I need to know before using my towel for the first time?
Yes! We recommend soaking towels in cold water and then hanging them to dry. Try filling your washing machine with cool water and letting your towels soak overnight. After soaking, run the spin cycle and line dry. Natural cotton needs to be "broken in", which allows the fibers to bloom, become softer and reach maximum absorbency. Each machine wash thereafter will make your towels become softer and more absorbent.
This isn't a must, but soaking the towels gives the cotton a jump start similar to washing and drying them many times.
What is the recommended care for my Havlu towels?
Gently machine wash Havlu Sport Turkish towels in warm or cold with similar colors. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets. Although these products make your towels smell great, they actually coat the fibers making them less absorbent. Never use bleach and do not to mix the wash with items that have zippers or hooks as they might get tangled in the tassels.
How should I dry my Havlu towels?
You can tumble dry your towels using a lower heat dryer setting, however air drying is always the best as too much heat can damage the integrity of cotton and make them less absorbent.
How do I keep my Havlu towels soft?
Adding one cup of white vinegar to your wash periodically will help to remove residue and improve the softness and absorbency of your Turkish towels. Using too much soap can make Turkish towel fibers become hard over time.
How do I fix pulled threads or unraveled tassels?
If your towel has a snagged thread, simply cut the thread off. This will not damage your towel because of how it is loomed.
The tassels are hand knotted and if one unravels can be easily re-tied. Separate the threads into two bunches and twist each section clockwise until fully twisted. Take each bunch and wrap around each other in a counter-clockwise direction until fully twisted around each other. Tie a knot at the end of the tassel.
Does the color fade?
Nope! The color does not fade in the sun or from chlorine.
