How often do you wash your bathroom essentials?

Bath linen is more important than you think. Whether it's Egyptian fabric or generic cotton, it's vital that you take care of your towels and bathrobes—after all, they don't come cheap. To make sure they last a long time, make sure you don't practice any of these bad habits: 

1. Not washing them frequently enough.

Washing them once a week is not enough to keep your towels clean! Since you use them everyday, try washing them more often to keep dirt from staining them permanently. Every three to four days should do the trick. 

2. Using too much detergent.

Being heavy-handed with detergent can result to a film residue over your towels—this makes them scratchy and rough over time which cannot be a good thing. Remember to use just the right amount of detergent and being more careful with the actual washing. 

3. Using the wrong fabric conditioner. 

Strong fabric softeners can affect a towel's absorbency or leave a waxy buildup over the fabric. Since you're supposed to wash towels often, it's best to skip conditioner all together. 

4. Not noticing the products it comes in contact with. 

Are you wondering why there are white specks all over your colored robes and towels? Although you don't use bleach, you can still get discoloration from acne-fighting face washes or whitening toothpastes.
