How to keep your towels fluffy?

There's nothing quite like wrapping yourself up in a soft, fluffy towel after a long, relaxing bath or shower. However, over time, towels can lose their fluffiness, leaving them feeling rough and scratchy. Various factors include the detergent you use, the washing machine settings, and even how you dry them. But don't worry; with a few simple tips, you can keep your towels fluffy and soft for years. In this blog, we'll discuss how to keep your towels fluffy.

Use the Right Detergent

The first step to keeping your towels fluffy is to use a suitable detergent. Avoid using too much detergent, as this can leave a residue on your towels, making them less fluffy over time. At 24Laundromat, we provide our own allergy-tested, unscented detergent, with each machine adding the correct amount of detergent, meaning there’s no need to worry about how much you need to put in because our machines think for you!

Wash in Hot Water

Washing your towels in hot water can help remove bacteria and germs lurking in the fibres. Hot water also helps to break down any residual oils or build-up in the towels, making them softer and fluffier.  It is important to always look at the labelling to ensure they are washed as per the manufacturer's guidance. Our machines have several temperatures from 30c to 60c, putting you completely in control.

Keep them separate

According to the experts, you should wash your towels separately from other clothing items, such as your pyjamas or bedsheets, and this will ensure that your towels remain soft and fluffy. We would also recommend not filling your load to its max, giving your towels some room to breathe, and allowing them to wash evenly. Our big machines are perfect for this, as this machine has a maximum load capacity of 14kg whilst our giant machines have a capacity of 19kg, making either machine ideal for the space required.

Dry Properly

The way you dry your towels can have a significant impact on their fluffiness. Avoid using high heat settings, as this can damage the fibres and cause them to lose their fluffiness. Instead, opt for a medium or low heat setting to help fluff the fibres and keep them soft. 

Once your towels are dry, give them a good shake to help fluff up the fibres; this will help to loosen any clumps or flattened areas, making them softer and fluffier. We have a tumble dryer and a drying locker in our stores, leaving you with fresh, soft, fluffy towels ready for that perfect bathtime.

Keeping your towels fluffy is all about using the correct detergent, washing them in hot water, drying them properly, and giving them a good shake. Following these simple tips, you can maximise the lifetime of your towels.
