Turkish cotton peshtemals are one of the most eco-friendly products that can be found on the market. They absorb a lot of water and you will be surprised how fast they dry.
Before use, you should soak your pesht in cold water for 4-6 hours or overnight before washing in cold/warm water.
You can tumble dry on low heat but best (and eco-friendly) is hang to air dry. From time to time add a cup of vinegar to the wash… it will remove any soap residue and act as a natural fabric softener. Please do not use bleach or fabric softeners!
The more you wash your pesht the softer it will get, and it will absorb moisture better!
