How To | Wash By Fabric

Terrycloth

Absorbent fabric made in the pile weave with uncut loops. Usually made with cotton but also made with synthetics, it can be yarn-dyed, bleached, piece-dyed, or printed. Commonly used for towels and robes.

What is terrycloth?

Terry cloth fabric is a popular material that originated in 19th century England. Terrycloth material is neither knit or woven; it's best known for its long, uncut loops and high water absorbency. Today, terrycloth is featured in everything from towels to athletic (to even high fashion) clothing.

Because of terrycloth fabric's characteristics, we often get questions about terrycloth care, and how to wash and dry it, which is why we've put together the ultimate how to clean terrycloth guide, where you can discover tips like how to keep terrycloth sheets, shirts and robes fresh between launderings with the Fabric Fresh Classic spray and much more.

CMSPage Terrycloth Pretreat Pretreat

When washing your favorite white terrycloth towels, pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. The way to wash terrycloth towels is to focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.

Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit stains.

The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, makeup, and ring around the collar.

To remove odor, presoak the item for 30 minutes in hot water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar. (This solution is far more effective than a standard cup of distilled white vinegar) .

Wash terrycloth with Signature Detergent on the normal cycle with hot water to achieve the deepest clean.

Terrycloth produces lint; wash with like colors and separately from other clothing.

To maintain whiteness and brightness, we recommend adding a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to each load in the wash cycle.

Eliminate static, prevent wrinkles, ease ironing, and keep clothing soft by adding Fabric Conditioner to every other wash.

Do not use for towels, as fabric conditioner and softener reduces absorbency.
CMSPage Terrycloth Dry & Finish Dry & Finish

Terrycloth can withstand tumble drying with high heat. It’s the best drying cycle for terrycloth. To reduce wrinkles, remove from the dryer while still damp or line dry.

If needed, steam to remove wrinkles. Never iron, as ironing will crush or flatten the natural pile.

To freshen between launderings, spritz with Fabric Fresh Classic.

CMSPage Terrycloth Store Store

Always store items clean.

We recommend storing in a breathable cotton storage bag to protect items from bugs.

Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.

All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
