Wash your towels on a warm or cold wash cycle then dry them on the line in the shade or in a low heat tumble dryer.
Don’t use bleach, iron them or send them off to the dry cleaners. Fabric softeners are also a no-no when it comes to towels (more on this down the page).
Keeping it bright
To help your bright coloured woviis keep their oomph, here’s a few suggestions:
- Line dry them in the shade.
- Wash bright coloured towels separately.
- Before using, soak your wovii overnight in a bucket of water with ½ a cup of salt dissolved in it. The salt will naturally help to lock in the colour. Don't mix colours though, keep different colours in different buckets.
- When wet, keep bright coloured woviis away from resting on other fabrics.
Divide and conquer
Just like with other clothes, wash woviis with like colours.
Woviis and fabric softener don’t mix.
Using fabric softeners with woviis will seriously reduce how well they can absorb water. Don't worry, unlike other towels, woviis will stay soft without it.
Uh-oh! I used fabric softener with my woviis. Are they ruined?
Not at all. Fabric softener just works by coating towels with a light film, which stops them from being as absorbent. Just wash it a few times, without fabric softener, and it'll regain its drying power.
