Especially for people whose face is prone to oil, sometimes they just use the towel to wipe their face and haven't used to wipe other parts, but they still get wet and sticky and smell after using it for a long time.
How should towels be used correctly? Is there a clever way to make the towel dry, fresh and not greasy? Now let's take a look at the precautions and cleaning tips for towel use!
1. Wash your face with a towel alone
It is recommended that the towel used for washing the face should not be used to wipe sweat and body, but only after washing the face, because when using the towel to wipe the body, the secretion, bacteria, dirt and grease on the body are easy to adhere to the towel. If it is not disinfected and cleaned regularly, it will become sticky or dry. Therefore, it is best to wash the towel once a week, So that the bacteria on the towel won't hurt the skin.
2. High temperature disinfection is the most effective
When cleaning the towel, you can first boil the towel with boiling water for 10 minutes, then wash it with detergent, and then take it to a ventilated place to dry. If you think it's a little troublesome to cook with boiling water, you can also get the microwave oven for 5 minutes after cleaning the towel, which can also achieve the effect of high-temperature disinfection.
3. Remove the taste with vinegar and baking soda
In addition, vinegar or soda powder can also be used to remove the taste. Wash according to the general washing procedures. Add two spoons of white vinegar or an appropriate amount of hot water to the washing machine. At this time, do not add detergent, softener or anything else. Directly start the washing machine for cleaning. After the cleaning procedure, you can add a little laundry soap or soda powder and wash it again to remove most of the peculiar smell and greasiness.
If there are windows in the bathroom, it's best to open and open the curtains during the day to ventilate and let the sun in, so as to avoid mildew when the towel is dry. In addition, towels should not be dried in the shade as far as possible. Only when they are exposed to the sun can they have the effect of sterilization and will not have taste.
If the towel has become sticky or hard, you can add alkaline detergent or scrub it with salt in the water, and then rinse it with clean water after washing; Salt also has the effect of removing peculiar smell. If you still can't remove the peculiar smell, it means that the service life of the towel is almost the same. It is recommended to change a new towel!
