Top Tips

We've put care and attention into creating the washing instructions on the label of the towel/bed linen. By adhering to recommended washing instructions you will guarantee enjoyment of your Christy products for years to come.

  • Ensure that you use the recommended amount of washing detergent.
  • Take care not to expose your towels/bed linen to neat detergent prior to washing, as this can promote colour fading.
  • Select a gentle laundry detergent.
  • Many modern detergents contain bleach or whitening agents. Ideally, these should not be used when washing coloured towels/bed linen as they may progressively fade the colour. Using a detergent designed for colours will ensure your towels/bed linen retain their colour for many years.
  • For best results tumble dry your towels/bed linen on a gentle heat. This will give your towels the softest finish and help reduce creasing on your bed linen.
  • Do not dry your bed linen for longer than necessary.
