Professionally Whitening Hotel Towels | Towel Supercenter

Many hotels keep white towels because they provide a classic, clean look. Over time, however, the towels can lose their pure white look. Instead of replacing perfectly good towels just because of the slightly changing color, there are some simple steps you can take to keep them looking their best.

 Here are the best ways to keep your white towels white.

Only Wash Whites With Whites

Whites have their own wash settings to keep them in the best condition. Washing white clothes and other items, including towels, in warm water is the best way to launder them. You can't put other colors in with them on this setting or you'll get that stereotypical red sock in with the whites that turns everything pink.

Washing whites together has another benefit — keeping your towels bright. White towels can't exactly fade, but they can become dull-looking over time. Washing whites together keep them in better shape.

Spot-Clean Before Washing

Hotel staff should always check over white towels to find any stains. Spot-cleaning your white towels before they go into the washing machine keeps them looking their best. If you overlook a stain, it probably has to be thrown away. Guests would not like to find a stained towel, even if it was clean.

Spot-cleaning your towels will help get those stains out, making it look like they were never there at all.

Add Baking Soda in the Wash Cycle

Another way to keep your towels in the best condition possible is by adding some baking soda during the wash cycle. Along with the normal amount of laundry detergent, add about a half cup of baking soda to every load of white towels.

The baking soda will activate with the water and laundry detergent to keep your towels looking brighter and will also help pull out any stains. Baking soda can be a little tough on other items, but towels are made stronger than other fabrics.

Don't Overfill the Washing Machine

If you're backed up on laundry, it can be tempting to fill your washing machines to the max to catch up again. This not only puts extra stress on your washing machines, but it also doesn't give as thorough of a clean.

When you overfill your washing machine, there's not enough room for your clothes to move around during the wash cycle. To get truly cleaned, your towels need to be agitated enough to get that deep clean you need.

Learn the Proper Way to Bleach White Towels

Chlorine bleach is one of the key ingredients to achieving a bright, white look for your towels. It's important to use it correctly, though.

Remember that bleach is a chemical that will permanently remove all pigments from fabrics. Therefore, only use bleach with your white towels. Although color-fast and bleach-resistant towels are available, this guide for getting whiter towels only focuses on towels that are white to begin with.

Start by sorting out all your white towels. Make sure they are all made from similar fabric, such as cotton. Why? You're going to be laundering them in the hottest water possible. Some fabrics can only be washed in warm or cool water, so you want to make sure your towels can all handle the same level of heat.

Set your washing machine on the highest heat setting your towels can accept. Then, adjust the load size so that your towels will agitate in the tub.

Toss your white towels into the machine. Add an appropriate amount of detergent as normal. Close the lid or door and start the wash cycle. After five minutes, your towels will be nicely soaked and ready to accept the bleach. At this point, stop the machine and add a solution of about a cup of bleach and a cup of warm water. Pour the bleach mixture directly into the machine, close the lid and resume the cycle.

You may want to rinse your towels twice after the bleaching process to remove any lingering odors. Afterward, put your towels in your dryer as you typically would.

Fold Right After the Dry Cycle

After your towels have dried completely in the dryer, it's important to fold them right away. A towel looks much better when it's folded immediately and sits overnight. The fabric has time to settle and won't wrinkle. This gives a much more professional look to your hotel's towels.

Now that you know how to whiten hotel towels, they will look their best for a longer period of time.
