Today we would like to take a moment to celebrate the unsung heroes of our home - bath towels. These towels help us get dry quickly so that we can get to work on time. As we leave the washroom we wipe our feet on the bath mat to prevent the house from getting wet and we use hand towels every time we wash our hands. These items may get lost in the rush of our daily lives but these are important items that make each day much more convenient. And so, just as they take care of us we should always remember to take care of them.
Let us begin by taking an inventory of all our bathroom linen.
- Bath towels
- Shower curtains
- Bath mats
- Hand towels
Quality bath towels can last upto 10 years if provided with the right care. But what is the right care?
Most dry cleaners in Mumbai do not take the time to understand each cloth and the special care it needs. At Spin N Press we understand that the best way to wash your towels is to wash them separately in warm water while also going easy on the softener.
Bath towels that you use once a day after your shower should be washed every 3 days, while hand towels that are regularly used throughout the day should be washed every day. Your shower curtains should be washed at least 4 times a year to avoid buildup of soap scum, mildew and other stains. Your bathrobe should be washed once a week, we also recommend using a dry cleaning service instead of simply tossing your bathrobe in the laundry basket to give you the best results.
The final bathroom linen item is your bath rug or mat. How regularly these should be washed depends on what kind of rug you have and how frequently it is used. If your rug has a rubber backing then it cannot stand to be washed frequently. Doing so will ruin the rug over time. A bath rug with rubber backing should only be washed once every 3-4 weeks. If the bathroom is used frequently and does not have a rubber backing then it is important to wash the rug every week. A wet and damp rug which does not have room to breathe is a hotspot for germs and fungi to grow.
Most of us tend to forget about our towels and rugs as they appear to be clean at all times. In today’s world, taking care of these tasks can be as simple as downloading the Spin N Press app and having your dry cleaners come to your doorstep. With the most convenient laundry app, Spin N Press is poised to become your favourite dry cleaners in Mumbai.
