                          Tips and Tricks

                          The Right Towel

                          The fibre and construction should be high quality,
                          but the texture, thickness, and size are a matter of taste.

                          • THE FIBRE

                            Cotton is a natural fibre that absorbs more than others, which is why towels are almost always made of pure cotton.

                            Sometimes it’s blended with other fibres to give the towel a different texture.

                          • THE THICKNESS

                            The unit of measurement for the thickness of a towel is grams per square metre (GSM).

                            At Simons, we offer a wide range of towels to meet your needs:
                            the lightest weigh 400 GSM, while the heaviest can weigh up to 800 GSM.

                            A bulky towel will certainly be cosy, but it will take up more space in the washer
                            and will also take longer to dry.?

                          • THE CONSTRUCTION

                            Towels made in Canada,
                            Turkey, and Portugal are known
                            for their superior quality.  

                            In fact, these countries have succeeded in developing
                            long-standing expertise in weaves and finishes, essential criteria
                            For durable and high-quality towels. 

                            This is why, at Simons, we are proud to collaborate with these countries 
                            to make our towels!

                          Types of Cotton

                          here are a few cottons known for their exceptional properties.

                          • EGYPTIAN COTTON

                            This cotton is considered to be one of the best in the world!

                            It's known for the quality of its fibres, which are fine, long, and resistant.
                            Egyptian cotton towels are remarkably soft, absorbent, and durable.

                          • TURKISH COTTON

                            Known for its quality, this cotton has ultra-long fibres that are
                            highly absorbent and durable.

                            It’s often used for making towels that have just the right amount of thickness
                            and that are soft and smooth to the touch.

                          • COTTON/MODAL

                            Modal is a rayon fibre that comes from wood pulp.

                            Adding modal to cotton increases its absorption and makes it softer. 
                            It also makes the towels more resistant to shrinking in the wash.

                          Care instructions

                          to prolong the life and beauty of your towels...

                          • THE FIRST FEW WASHES

                            Wash your towels before using them for the first time.
                            During the first few washes, you can dilute
                            1/4 to 1/2 a cup of white vinegar in the water
                            to help the colours set. 

                          • REGULAR WASHING

                            Always wash towels in warm water
                            without adding bleach or fabric softener. 

                          • COLOURS

                            Bright and dark colours should be washed separately
                            until the excess lint disappears.

                            Certain colours may continue to bleed after several washes. 

                          • LINT

                            Clean the lint trap before you begin drying.

                            It’s normal for certain high-quality towels to produce lint.
                            Sometimes, it can take up to 10 washes for this to stop. 

                          • DRYING

                            Tumble dry towels on low heat to minimize shrinkage
                            and to make them soft.

                          • Did you know?

                            Cut pulled threads off easily with scissors.

                            Fabric softeners tend to reduce the absorbency of your towels.

                            Certain toothpastes can discolour your towels, so it’s best to avoid
                            using your towels to clean your sink.
