Hommey's Guide to Caring For Your Robe

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of slipping into a luxuriously plush Hommey Robe after a long day. Whether it’s your go to essential for lounging at home, pampering yourself after a shower, or wearing poolside, your robe is one item you couldn’t live without and therefore robe TLC is essential. We’ve created the ultimate guide, to ensure your Hommey Robe is providing year-round comfort for seasons to come.

The Care Label Is Key
Before wearing your Hommey Robe, always start by reading the care label so you can get the best out of your robe.

Snags Happen
If you see a fabric pull, don’t sweat it. The Hommey Robe gets its plush feel from the high long pile, and therefore there is a small chance the Terry loops can get caught on items such as jewellery or a comb. If a fibre loop is released, please do not pull it. Simply cut off the loop with sharp scissors to avoid any further pulling. This will not affect the robe's performance and does not mean your robe is faulty in any way.

Wash With Care
It is safe to wash your robe in the washing machine but follow the key guidelines below;
Use a gentle cycle: Select the gentle or delicate cycle on your washing machine to prevent excessive agitation, which can damage the fabric.
Use a mild detergent: Avoid harsh detergents that can strip the softness from the terry cloth. Opt for a mild, fragrance-free detergent. Consider adding a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle to remove any detergent buildup.
Separate colours: Wash your robe with similar colours to prevent colour bleeding or fading. Dark-coloured robes should be washed separately for the first few washes to be on the safe side.

Mind The Temperature
The Hommey robes can typically handle warm water, but it's essential to check the care label for specific temperature recommendations. Avoid using hot water as it can cause shrinkage and damage to the fabric. We recommend washing towels and robes in 40 degrees.
Dry With Care
How you dry your Terry robe is just as important as how you wash it.
Tumble dry on low heat: Use a low heat setting in your dryer to prevent overheating and fabric damage. Tumble dry with towels only and avoid adding products with zippers or anything sharp.
Avoid overloading: Overloading the dryer can lead to uneven drying and wrinkles. Give your robe enough space to tumble freely.
Remove promptly: Take your robe out of the dryer as soon as it's done to prevent excessive wrinkling. Hang it up or fold it neatly.
About Fabric Softeners and Conditioners
While fabric softeners and conditioners can make your robe feel even softer, they can also leave a residue that reduces absorbency. It's best to skip these products when washing your terry robe. If you find that your robe is losing its softness over time, consider adding a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle to remove any detergent buildup.

Storing Your Robe
When correctly stored, this can also extend the life of your Hommey robe.
To prevent wrinkles and maintain the robe's shape, hang it on a padded hanger or a hook. Ensure your robe is completely dry before storing.
