The smallest size hammam towels can be used as a tea towel in the kitchen, as guest towel or as a hand towel at the sink. A hammam towel dries well and has an elegant look.
A small hammam towel is also ideal to take along to the sauna, as an extra (light wight) towel to sit on.
Pull the knots of the fringes of the hammam towel before washing (the first time only). Before use, put the hammam towel in COLD water for about 12 hours (if possible, not necessary). This will make the fibers stronger and the absorption better. It also reduces shrinkage. Then wash it at 40 degrees.
Wash your hammam towels with similar colours. Hammam towels can be washed at 60 degrees and can be tumbled dry.
The use of fabric softener can make hammam towels less absorbent. So do not use fabric softener or use as little as possible. We advise not to iron the hammam towels, as it will close the fibers which makes it less absorbent.
