How to care for your terry towelling products – towels, bathrobes and bathmats

What temperature can I wash my Vossen products?

 

It is important that you wash every terry product before you use it. Due to our Lifetime Colour System there is no need to prewash at 60°. To be environmentally friendly we advise washing temperatures between 20° and 40°.

Which detergent should I use?

Always wash white, lightly coloured and deeply coloured products separately. A high performance detergent containing optical brighteners should only be used for white terry toweling. A mild detergent should be used for coloured terry toweling to preserve the brightness of the colours.
We advise liquid laundry detergent.

How much fabric softener can I use?

Fabric softener should be used very sparingly. Fabric softeners adhere to the surface of the cotton fibres reducing the absorbency and drying ability of the fabric. If you use a tumble dryer, you do not need to use a fabric softener because our unique AIRpillow technology ensures that all Vossen products have a uniform high pile.

How can I avoid linting?

It is quite normal for terry towelling products to produce lint when they are new – especially if they are high-grade or high-piled fabrics. Due to our unique AIRpillow technology, Vossen products produce 90% less lint than conventional towels. To prevent excessive and long-term linting, the towels should not be allowed to rub too much in the washing machine so always ensure that the washing drum is full to capacity.

How should I dry my terry toweling products?

Our products are made out of natural cotton; therefore they can never be absolutely shrink-proof. You can prevent the fabric from shrinking by stretching it whilst it is still damp or after drying, by pulling it into shape. The tumble dryer temperature should not be set too high.

How can I avoid pulled threads?

Pulled threads are no problem! Simply cut them off flush with the pile. To prevent pulled threads, please do not wash your terry toweling products together with garments which have hooks or zips.
