One of the main frequent questions are “…how to wash Foutas”, “…should I wash it by hand?” or “…is this machine washable?” At our online store www.foutadeibiza.es we explain you in detail how to do it properly, but in this post we are giving you some helpful information on how to wash Foutas with naturals products. You will love it!
Our Foutas are handmade hammam towels, made of 100% cotton, no need to wash them by hand. They can be washed in the washing machine and with every wash they become softer. The recommended temperature is 30º degrees in the regular cotton program so your Fouta will last longer. In case you need it, you can try one washing or two at 40º, but better always returning to 30º after that. Line dry your Fouta where air currents flow and remember not to use the tumble dryer.
Over time your Fouta fibers can accumulate some lime deposits from the washing water also dirt encrusted very hard to remove. Also in case that you forget your Fouta still wet inside of a beach bag for a long period of time, odors result of fungi and bacteria can apear. The homemade solution that we have found widely mentioned in many blogs and websites, are two “easy to find” natural products at home, baking soda and apple cider vinegar.
After studying and evaluating different home remedies, such as scented ammonia, lemon, salt, we decided to try baking soda and apple cider vinegar. By using a cup white vinegar into the drawer of the washing machine no longer need to add fabric softener, vinegar itself softens further and also eliminates bacteria and moisture from the fibers, a great discovery for us, definitely grandmothers around the world know a lot of useful stuff. On the other side, baking soda surprises us while using it as a cleaning agent. Incorporating only half a cup of baking soda in the wash drum, it neutralizes odors, disinfects and removes grease and stubborn dirt.
We have done several washes to check it, and after that, to Cool-Fouta’s team opinion, we are very pleased with the results and have not been washed Foutas in any different way since then. Would you try this little trick too? If you want your Foutas get softer, more durable, fully sanitized and odors free, please do not use fabric softener, add apple cider vinegar and baking soda instead to your regular washing, your Foutas and your washing machine will thank you.
One of our main goals in Cool-Fouta is to bring colour to everyone’s day-to-day living. Now that we understand how colours affect our life, why not to pay more attention to their potential applications.
