Re: Care For Accessories
Some general guidelines that may be pre-empted by your manufacturer's recommendations:
Liquid detergent only, without softeners. If you use a bleach to remove stains, make sure it's color-safe (a non-chlorine bleach).
If you feel they need it, the addition of a cup of white vinegar in the rinse cycle (or a separate washing) can help remove any built-up product or soap.
Separate grungy towels and wash in a separate load from the relatively clean towels that you use for things like drying paint and glass.
Tumble dry low without softening sheets. Dryer softening balls can they tend to toss the towels a little better and prevent static cling as well as provide a "natural" softener. They also help to knock out any lint or debris.
Lay on a clean surface to inspect both visually and by hand for slivers, lint, thin spots or rough edges before folding and storing.
Good towels will wash up nicely and last for anywhere from one season to several seasons.
