Summer arrives, towel season! Beach towel, bath towel, bathrobe. it is the season that towels are used frequently. But the reporter found that there are still some questions about the consumer's choice and use of such products. In this instalment, we invite industry veterans to answer questions.
According to the length of cotton fibre, it can be divided into pima cotton, long staple cotton and short staple cotton. Pima cotton is the best long-staple cotton, cotton with the best length of cotton, followed by long staple cotton, most famous for the long staple cotton of xinjiang and the long staple cotton of Egypt.
Synthetic fibre is our most commonly used polyester fibre, and some of the more ultrafine fibre towels on the market are made of this material. It is characterized by the ability to absorb water, the fabric is light and thin, the stain is strong, not easy to lose hair colour, the service life is long. The drawback is that it is chemically synthetic, not so natural, so this type of material is often used for cloth, floor MATS, and less contact with human skin. If you are in contact with the human body, most of the blends are made of cotton parts.
Regarding the choice of towel, MAO hongmei said that from some sales data and experience, personal usage and gender differences in choice of towel. Women, children, choose the fabric softer untwisted, shearing products, while men are more likely to take the friction terry products, so when the choice is according to own hobby and habits to choose to suit their own products.
According to the introduction, the grade of towel raw material first, quality directly decides the quality of towel. Second is the craft of towel, the good and bad of craft also decide the quality of towel. Consumers also need to pay attention to when the choose and buy towels on the towel label its safety standards should be GB18401-2010 - b type, must choose to have the safety standard, towels, and infant products should choose GB18401-2010 - a class.
Mao Gongmei explanation, the quality of the towel in general refers to a single weight of the towel, but the weight of the towel is not directly determining the quality of towel, such as the European and American countries consumers prefer thick terry towels, Asians prefer soft, thin of zero twist towel, so can't simply by weight measure quality.
The yarn is a unit of yarn thickness, and the number of count and yarn is related to the weight of the yarn. For a simple example, if you can weave 30 pieces of yarn that is 1 meter in length, you can say that this is 30 pieces of yarn. If you can weave 40 pieces of yarn about one meter in length, you can say that this is 40 yarns. The higher the count, the finer the yarn, the higher the evenness, and the fabric will be thinner and softer. As far as towels are concerned, 10, 16, 21, 32, 40. Although there are a few 60 pieces of yarn, 40 is generally the best. It is true that the higher the number, the better the softness and quality of the towel. But Mao Gongmei also remind, now there are some illegal businessmen will use a softener, make count is not high towel softer, through the processing of towel, generally after washing a few times, towel will harden. Although the towel in use inevitably can harden, but is generally used in normal towel period, 3-6 months to produce this kind of phenomenon, consumer is in use process should be more careful.
"In general, the towel with good quality with after one or two minor rub off basically won't rub off, continue to rub off serious towel must be unqualified, is not recommended." said MAO. It is normal for one type of towel products, but this kind of wool is confined to have floating flocculant hair or fine hair, for towel wool is related national standards. Take a 100 gram towel for example, if use 3 months drop hair is 3 to 5 grams, the towel is qualified. If the towel is only 80 grams after three months, the product is substandard.
While answering the question above, the red sister also made some considerations for the consumer during the use of the process:
In the process of daily cleaning, it is recommended to use neutral detergent, do not use detergent cleaning products, such as strong acid, strong alkali like 84, and cleaning temperature not over 80 ℃. Towel class had better not wash them in washing machine, because towel than ordinary clothes, bedding, such as the density difference, washing machine twist wring to towel tissue damage.
If a dark towel is chosen, it is recommended to soak in brine before using. The towel USES the time to become slippery, can use warm brine to soak, rinse after rinse clean and put in cool and ventilated place, can make a towel become relaxed.
