                                Tips and Tricks

                                The Right Towel

                                The fibre and construction should be high quality,
                                but the texture, thickness, and size are a matter of taste.

                                • THE FIBRE

                                  Cotton is a natural fibre that absorbs more than others, which is why towels are almost always made of pure cotton.

                                  Sometimes it’s blended with other fibres to give the towel a different texture.

                                • THE THICKNESS

                                  The unit of measurement for the thickness of a towel is grams per square metre (GSM).

                                  At Simons, we offer a wide range of towels to meet your needs:
                                  the lightest weigh 400 GSM, while the heaviest can weigh up to 800 GSM.

                                  A bulky towel will certainly be cosy, but it will take up more space in the washer
                                  and will also take longer to dry.?

                                • THE CONSTRUCTION

                                  Towels made in Canada,
                                  Turkey, and Portugal are known
                                  for their superior quality.  

                                  In fact, these countries have succeeded in developing
                                  long-standing expertise in weaves and finishes, essential criteria
                                  For durable and high-quality towels. 

                                  This is why, at Simons, we are proud to collaborate with these countries 
                                  to make our towels!

                                Types of Cotton

                                here are a few cottons known for their exceptional properties.

                                • EGYPTIAN COTTON

                                  This cotton is considered to be one of the best in the world!

                                  It's known for the quality of its fibres, which are fine, long, and resistant.
                                  Egyptian cotton towels are remarkably soft, absorbent, and durable.

                                • TURKISH COTTON

                                  Known for its quality, this cotton has ultra-long fibres that are
                                  highly absorbent and durable.

                                  It’s often used for making towels that have just the right amount of thickness
                                  and that are soft and smooth to the touch.

                                  Shop our turkish COTTON towels

                                • COTTON/MODAL

                                  Modal is a rayon fibre that comes from wood pulp.

                                  Adding modal to cotton increases its absorption and makes it softer. 
                                  It also makes the towels more resistant to shrinking in the wash.

                                • THE FIRST FEW WASHES

                                  Wash your towels before using them for the first time.
                                  During the first few washes, you can dilute
                                  1/4 to 1/2 a cup of white vinegar in the water
                                  to help the colours set. 

                                • REGULAR WASHING

                                  Always wash towels in warm water
                                  without adding bleach or fabric softener. 

                                • COLOURS

                                  Bright and dark colours should be washed separately
                                  until the excess lint disappears.

                                  Certain colours may continue to bleed after several washes. 

                                • LINT

                                  Clean the lint trap before you begin drying.

                                  It’s normal for certain high-quality towels to produce lint.
                                  Sometimes, it can take up to 10 washes for this to stop. 

                                • DRYING

                                  Tumble dry towels on low heat to minimize shrinkage
                                  and to make them soft.

                                • Did you know?

                                  Cut pulled threads off easily with scissors.

                                  Fabric softeners tend to reduce the absorbency of your towels.

                                  Certain toothpastes can discolour your towels, so it’s best to avoid
                                  using your towels to clean your sink.
