Looking After Your Tea Towels
At Sticky Toffee, we are always looking at ways we can avoid wastage where possible, so it’s important to us that our products are made to last.
Due to the nature of tea towels and their usage, we often find ourselves washing them countless times, so it’s important that we look after them so that they look and feel fresher for longer.
All of our tea towels are all made of 100% cotton, which is a fabric known for its absorbent and durable qualities. Some of our tea towels use a terry-cloth weave, with fabric loops which in turn allow for even more absorbency.
Our tea towels are designed to withstand plenty of washing. To achieve maximum efficiency, we suggest that before use you soak your new tea towels in warm water, or wash them first, to remove any excess oil from the manufacturing process and to help achieve maximum absorbency.
Avoid using fabric conditioner which often leaves a coating on the fabric, which in turn can become water-resistant over time. Instead, simply use a standard detergent when washing your tea towels to retain their absorbent qualities.
Finally, avoid using a tumble dryer when drying your tea towels as these can sometimes deteriorate fabric quicker over time - just hang them out to dry naturally for extra longevity.
