How to buy high-quality towel products
To buy towels at regular stores: The purchase sources of regular malls, supermarkets or specialty stores generally have strict inspection and verification procedures, and the products are basically produced by regular manufacturers.
Choose a more credible brand: This brand has a good reputation and a sense of social responsibility. Through various certification systems, it can guarantee the inherent quality of the product.
Purchasing towels with clear marks: Regular towel products have clear marks on their products, indicating the manufacturer, place of origin, telephone, trademark, implementation standards, washing methods, etc.
Look at the appearance: good towels have soft and bright colors, natural luster, and clear patterns; fine loops and few hairiness, regularity; exquisite workmanship, short thread ends, no defects, and meticulous sewing.
Feel the touch: soft touch, fluffy and dense loops, elastic body and good water absorption.
Smell: The qualified towel smells fresh and natural, and the product has no odor. In the process of purchasing towel products, we must correctly understand the product's feel and color fastness.
The real hand feel is a kind of softness of the cotton wool itself. It is good to touch, fluffy and elastic, and it is different from slippery, which is caused by adding too much softener. A small amount of softener has a helper feel, and too much softener not only affects the water absorption, but also is not conducive to our health. Softeners may block the fine pores of our skin and affect the metabolism. In addition, inferior softeners also contain harmful substances, which is even more harmful to health.
Pure cotton towels are generally dyed with reactive dyes. The dye molecules and cellulose molecules are covalently bonded to fix the dye on the fiber. During the reaction, a part of the dye is bound to the fiber, and at the same time, a part of the dye is hydrolyzed and adsorbed on the surface of the fiber, but without covalent bonding, it is easy to fall off. When dyeing dark towels, there are a lot of hydrolyzed dyes adsorbed on the fibers, which is difficult to wash, so there will be discoloration during the initial washing, which cannot be avoided.
