Had a long tiring day at work? Then, there is nothing better than indulging in the velvety-good softness of a luxury bathrobe to rejuvenate yourself. Although primarily used to dry off after a swim or shower, bathrobes serve many other purposes. You can wear them to keep warm in winter, cozy up while lounging at home or as nightwear.
Buying bathrobes in Pakistan is a costly undertaking. So, you’d undoubtedly want to make the most of your investment by ensuring that your bathrobe stands the test of time. For this, regular care and maintenance are crucial. Even if your robe appears clean, you should wash it every 3-4 wears. Wait longer than that, and your bathrobe will likely develop mould and bacteria.
Guide To Bathrobe Care and Maintenance
How Should I Care for My Robe?
To preserve the luxurious look and feel of your bathrobe, we recommend:
- First, take off your robe’s belt and wash it with the arms inside out.
- Use a gentle detergent – half the amount you would use in a regular wash.
- Hand wash or machine wash cold at a regular wash cycle.
- Next, air dry or tumble dry your robe on low/no heat.
- Remove from the washer/dryer as soon as possible and hang it out.
- Avoid fabric softener as it reduces softness and drying ability.
- Avoid the use of bleach and detergents containing brightening additives.
Do You Need to Wash your Robe Before Use?
We receive this question a lot. We recommend washing your bathrobe before initial use to rid it of leftover finishes from production. In addition, the washing process relaxes the cotton fibres, making them soft and fluffy for you to enjoy.
How Often Should You Wash Your Robe?
Unlike other intimate clothing items, your robe does not need to be washed after every use. Instead, to keep your robe clean and fresh, we recommend washing it once a month or so. By avoiding overwashing, you guarantee your bathrobe a longer life.
Sniff test when in doubt!
How to Remove Robe Stiffness?
Detergent or laundry softener build-up can cause your favourite bathrobe to become stiff and worn-looking. We recommend washing your robe without detergent to fluff it up. You can also use distilled white vinegar to help remove excess detergent.
How to Remove Robe Stains?
We recommend spot cleaning whenever possible, blotting the stain with cold water. For tougher stains, we recommend pre-treating the stain with detergent by pouring it directly onto the stain and letting it set for an hour or two before washing it. The sooner you treat the stain, the better.
