Will washing the towels in warm or hot water hurt them?
The tag says to wash in cold water and I just was curious as to why.
Nicole, I have a set of these in the linen color that my sister gave me a couple years ago, and some more in different colors that I ordered after getting those. I have washed the linen color ones in both hot and warm water, many times (I was almost everything in hot water). The towels have held up beautifully. After ordering new ones and comparing them with the ones I've had for a few years and washed in hot and warm, there is a slight difference in feel and thickness, but I can't imagine any towel being used and washed for 2 years not showing that. I think they say to wash only in cold so that it will hold up and last as long as possible. But washing in hot or warm certainly won't ruin them or make them less enjoyable, they just might not last forever the way they might with only cold washing. I hope this helps you.
