In summer, you can not do without buying this terry product. What you should pay attention to?
In preparation for the vacation, you can not do without buying a terry beach towel. What you should pay attention to?
COMPOSITION Usually terry is called a fabric made from natural linen or cotton, which is covered with a looped pile. Such matter absorbs moisture well, so when choosing a beach towel, pay attention to what fibers it is made of. The more in the composition of natural materials, the better. Often, modal is added to the terry cloth - cellulose fiber, it is safe and gives additional silkiness, softness, allows the terry towel to better absorb moisture.
DENSITY The higher it is, the stronger the matter, which means that a beach towel will last you longer. Moreover, the high density of terry cloth also increases the amount of moisture absorbed by the towel. You can check the density by touch and weight: with a size of 100x150 cm, a terry towel should weigh more than 500 g. However, it should be noted that a denser terry cloth dries longer than loose.
PIL LENGTH Optimal - 5 mm. If the loops are longer, after the first wash, the beach towel will lose its appearance - the pile will stretch under its weight. If it’s shorter, the fabric will be stiff, it will quickly get wet and absorb moisture poorly.
CIRCULATED HINGES AND PILS - only such a combination is considered ideal for a beach towel. If the fibers remain on contact with the fabric on the skin, then the loops on it are simple, not twisted, and you should not buy such a terry towel - it is short-lived.
WASHING THE BEACH TOWEL Hand and machine washable in warm water with a chlorine-free powder - it destroys the structure of terry cloth. You should also remember that a terry towel should not be squeezed in a typewriter. Do not put it in a drum with things that have hooks.
