Care of your Fouta is very easy, it's like any other cotton fabric, it is machine washable gaining smoothness in every washing and the color does not fade.
We recommend that you do the first washing in machine separately in a cold water delicate program. Like any other cotton towel, wash your Fouta before you use it. First of all, to remove any traces of the artisanal production process. Second, with that first washing the cotton yarn becomes more absorbent.
After that, use the washing machine regular cotton program in 30°. In order to remove any stain, you can rub it with bar soap or traditional green soap or Marseille soap, and raise the temperature to 40° for a stronger washing in the machine. In any case, we strongly recommend to get back to the 30º after that.
For the drying better line drying, but do not leave them exposed to sun unnecessarily, if there is not so much moisture in the air you will see how your Foutas will dry very quickly. Colors can be damaged after long exposure to direct sun as any other fabric. They can be low iron if you like to use them as tablecloths, but if you use them as towel, you will see that they do not need ironing.
We ask you only three things: Do not use bleach, do not tumble dry and do not dry wash them.
If you have any questions or problems during the washing, please contact us and we will help you.
