Towels can be a complicated business, so here’s a quick rundown of all you need to know to pick your perfect bathroom linen match…

And finally: Caring for you Towels…

When you first buy your towels
you should always wash them.
When washing towels, don’t use fabric
softener as it will decrease the towels
ability to absorb water.
To make your towels super fluffy you can tumble dry them, but if you have your eye on the environment, line drying your towels can give them a fantastic feeling of freshness. Don’t iron towels as this can
make them stiff and scratchy
and also make them
less absorbent.
