The Value of Vinegar
LUALOHA is all about keeping it simple, natural and environmentally friendly. Our Turkish towels are woven with sustainably grown 100% Turkish cotton and get their beautifully vibrant hues from chemical- and allergy-free OEKOTEX-certified dyes. They also take up less space in the washing machine (using less water) and can be hung to dry (saving energy).
But let’s take it one step further – LUALOHAs also encourage the use of vinegar as a fabric softener instead of those harsh, chemical-filled brands. Vinegar is usually made from corn, potato, rice or barley grain or starch, making it a wonderful hypoallergenic, perfume-free option to keep your laundry looking clean, smelling fresh and feeling soft.
Top 5 Reasons to Add Vinegar to Your Laundry
While white distilled vinegar acts as a chemical-free fabric softener for all laundry, it has a special purpose for LUALOHAs. It quickly and easily removes the natural starch used in the yarn of our Turkish towels (needed to make the yarn stiff for the weaving process), making them softer faster. In fact, we recommend washing your LUALOHA 3-4 times in cold or warm water with a cup of vinegar before using it so that it reaches its maximum softness and absorbency.
The Secret Ingredient for Turkish Towel Softness
That’s right, vinegar does more than make a delicious tossed salad – it’s also great for your clothes and your most treasured LUALOHAs. By simply adding a cup of vinegar to your wash cycle, you’ve got a surefire recipe for ultimate cleanliness and softness!
