Proper towel care starts from the offset. As soon as your bathroom towels have arrived, you need to wash them. They might not be dirty looking and appear perfectly clean, but there is no telling the amount of hands that touched it from the warehouse, to the shop to you. There is no worry of bacteria or germs with new towels, what you are doing is making sure that the towel is thoroughly clean before it touches your skin. Giving your new towels a good wash before using them also removes the chemicals and oils that some towels are coated with, as these are intended to make the towels softer but all they do is make it less absorbent.

How regularly you wash your towels is a personal choice but you need to take into consideration that too much washing can make the towels old and wear them out, but your towels need to stay clean to stop germs spreading.
