Towels made of cotton, are super absorbent.
The Importance of GSM for your Towel Selection
This is the standard measurement for the weight and quality of towels. It is a measure of density, and higher GSM cotton towels are normally heavier and have a higher capacity for absorption.
Normally, towels range between 300 – 900 GSM. Here’s a breakdown:
300-400 GSM – These towels are lighter and thinner. This also means that they’ll dry faster. Could be ideal for the gym or kitchen.
400-600 GSM – Beach towels and bath towels fit well into this medium category. Remember, we’re increasing absorbency as the numbers go up.
600-900 GSM – These puppies will take a long while to dry, they are quite heavy therefore their absorbency is amazing! Not ideal for commercial purposes.
In conclusion, different GSM values can be good for different settings. Don’t forget – numbers matter, and it’s important to know what you’re buying.
In the Laundry
Towels absorb large amounts of dirt and body oils and should be laundered frequently. Please chose a good Washing Powder that removes stains from body oil, dirt, grass, and more.
Also keep in mind that you want to sort your towels, washing dark and/or coloured towels separately, because they can bleed. To keep your white towels bright you might consider a Washing Powder with bleaching components.
Liquid fabric softeners do work, but they leave a film that decreases a towel’s absorbency and increases flammability. Use dryer sheets instead. Most towels shrink, so use the appropriate heat setting. If your dryer has a moisture sensor then all the better. If you like to be more Environmentally Friendly drying it on your clothesline will save energy and you will have a longer lasting Towel.
