How to Clean Custom Turkish Towels?
Vinegar is an all-rounder in the household. If you do not use it neat, the slightly pungent odor disappears after a short time. Faded, hard, or slightly musty Custom Turkish Towels can be spiced up with a vinegar treatment: soak the laundry in hot water with vinegar for a few hours and then wash it as usual. This removes lime and old soap residue.
Vinegar not only fixes the colors but also helps against lint. If you wash new Custom Turkish Towels briefly with vinegar, you create optimal conditions for their first use and long shelf life. A regular vinegar cure keeps textiles fresh for a long time. It is best to put half a cup of vinegar in the detergent compartment for each wash as soon as the main wash cycle starts. Table vinegar with 5% acid is best for this.
Vinegar essence with a high acid content, on the other hand, has a bleaching effect. It is therefore ideal for freshening up and bleaching old white Custom Turkish Towels. Alternatively, you can also use baking soda. A cup of baking soda in around 3.5 liters of water is the perfect solution, in which white towels become fresh after a few hours. Regularly adding half a cup of baking soda to the laundry also has a positive long-term effect.
Citric acid and soda are also great for spicing up old tissues. You can also combine these home remedies with each other, just not with other bleaches, as this can lead to the formation of toxic gases. The optimal dosage depends on the hardness of the water and the volume of the washing machine. The agents are nowhere near as aggressive as chemical decolorizes. Still, don’t use too much. Especially with colored laundry, this could lead to a result that overshoots the mark.
How do you Deep Clean Towels?
If old Custom Turkish Towels are still in good shape, but no longer a visual highlight, you can give them a color treatment. Towels can be easily re-colored or re-colored with textile dye.

If you use it to dye Custom Turkish Towels that are no longer completely white. You can turn them into fresh, pastel-colored towels by using only a little textile dye sparingly.
You can also use natural colors, e.g. are abundant in spinach and red cabbage. Unfortunately, this method is not so machine-compatible, but rather something for the saucepan. Another variant that is less work. But, is only suitable for dyeing individual pieces, as you need closable glass vessels of the appropriate size, is solar dyeing.
In a water bath with coloring flowers or leaves for several days, the textiles gradually take on color with the help of sunlight. But be careful! There is a risk of a batik pattern, which at least on Custom Turkish Towels can also be quite decorative and a very desirable effect.
There is still something going on!
At some point, however, the day came for every towel when it did its job in the bathroom. Before you throw it away ungratefully, you could also send it into early retirement. As a mopping cloth, pad for the hamster cage, or packaging material, it can once again do a good job. Together with children. You can even give towels a second life: with the help of a needle and thread, glue, and old pillow fillings, discarded Custom Turkish Towels can be turned into innovative cuddly toys.
