Why do we need to wash the hotel towels?

Customers will feel unsafe when they see or use the yellowed towels; therefore, hotel towel washing is important in creating positive impressions for customers when using the hotel’s services. This not only contributes to enhancing the hotel’s brand and quality but also helps protect the Customers’ health.

Furthermore, the hotel employs a large number of towels that are easily soaked. If not cleaned properly, this is a condition for the growth of bacteria and mold, which can harm human health, such as diseases of the skin, ear, and throat diseases, infectious diseases, etc. Besides, it contributes to increasing the yellowing and tarnishing status.

5 principles for washing hotel towels

To ensure the quality and longevity of hotel towels, you need to comply with the five principles below:

Towel classification

There are many hotel towels with different functions; therefore, you need to categorize them according to color and material before washing them.

Towel classification process

Suitable detergents

Depending on the material of the towels, we should choose a different detergent that suits each material. Do not pour the detergent directly on the towel because it can cause the surface to fray or fade.

Avod abusing the fabric softeners

The fabric softeners help to soften the fabric, but excessive use of softeners will damage the fabric. Therefore, the fabric softeners are used at a suitable dosage and frequency.

Do not use high temperatures when drying

The cause of dry, rough, and quickly damaged status is using high temperatures in drying. Therefore, you should choose a suitable temperature for the fabric’s material and dry it in a cool place when drying reaches about 80%.
