Love your Towels!
At Anna's Linens, we want to make sure you love what you buy! To help you select the right towel, consider what you would like to use the towel for. If the towel's use is primarily decorative, you may want to choose an embellished towel. If you are looking for a towel to dry off with after bathing, a terry towel is the most absorbent type of towel, and would be the best choice! We've provided a chart to help you identity the right towel for you.
Terry towels are the most popular towel because of its strength and absorbency.
The fibers used to create a towel are the most important feature. Towels blended with synthetic fibers (such as polyester) are not as absorbent. A towel constructed of 100% cotton is durable and absorbent, however, a blended towel made with natural fibers (such as bamboo) is just as absorbent as a 100% cotton towel. The type of cotton is another important feature. The higher the quality of cotton, the more durable and absorbent the towel will be.
Choose the Right Towel for You
The type of cotton used when creating a towel directly effects its absorbency, durability and softness. Each of the types of cotton listed below will affect the quality and durability of a towel.
Standard Cotton: When a towel is made with 100% standard cotton, it is durable and absorbent.
Caring for your New Towels
All towels should be machine washed separately in warm water with like colors using a mild detergent. Towels will last longer if bleach is avoided. Tumble dry on a low setting. Remove promptly from the dryer and fold while still warm.
Bath rugs can give comfort and add a pop of color to your space! There are a few things to consider before purchasing a bath rug. Determine the size of the area in the bathroom you would like to cover, as well as the amount of foot traffic in the bathroom. If the area is a high traffic area, consider a lower pile style(length of fiber) or a darker color.
Bath Rug Selections
Bath Rugs typically come in rectangle, oval or oblong shapes and are generally the same size regardless of manufacturer. They offer warmth and comfort on a cold bathroom floor. Below are the different sizes of bath rugs we offer in addition to the basic rectangular shape.
Caring for your Bath Rugs
Rugs can be machine washed separately in cool to warm water with like colors using a mild detergent and fabric softener. Rugs with a rubber, non-skid backing should hang dry to increase the life of the rug.
