To protect textile colors, wash white and dark colors separately. Washing at low temperatures, protects your clothes and the environment. Please do not as a routine use bleach or other chemical whitening agents.
Fabric softners and rinsing agents
We do not encourage using fabic softners or rinsing agents as they are burdening our environment and they also cut down absorbtion capabilities in towels.
Water quality / water softner
If your water is hard to medium hard, we encourage adding a water-softening agent to the wash water.
Permanent press can only be accomplished by using formaldahyde, but because of the health hazards involved with formaldahyde; TrueStuff bans the use of it. Instead, we strive to use high quality yarns, and to produce high quality textiles that are comfortable to the body and handsome in wear.
Clothes dryers cause shrinkage and shorten the life of clothes overall. When possible, hang your clothes to dry. If you prefer softer towels, then tumble-dry but be aware that excess shrinkage may occur.
Light colored cotton textiles can be washed at higher temperatures. Difficult stains, such as red wine spills, can be removed successfully by immediate wetting the textile with water and keeping it wet until washing in hot water. Wash colored fabrics in luke-warm temperatures and use warm wash for slightly more soiled colored clothes.
All of our cotton products can be ironed at high temperatures. Terry towel snags can be cut off without creating damage to the terry towel fabric.
