We know that children's skin is relatively delicate, and they cannot tolerate any harm. Generally, parents will be very cautious when choosing pure cotton children's towels and baby towels, hoping to find high-quality towels, but not all mothers know how to select good towels. Therefore, it is easy for them to choose inferior towels, so how do moms judge the quality of eco-cotton towels?
Inferior towels are not only poorly absorbent but may also contain some harmful substances, which may cause damage to health. If adults use them, there may not be any major problems, but children's skin is very soft, so if they use inferior towels, it is harmful to the skin. In order to make the towel feel good, some companies add a lot of softeners, but too much softener not only affects the water absorption but also is not good for our health. Softeners may clog the tiny pores of our skin and affect metabolism. In addition, inferior softeners also contain harmful substances, which are even more harmful to health. There are still many unqualified towels that have the problem of dye fading. These dyes are transferred to the skin, and the harmful substances in them may be latent in the human body for a long time, which will be bad for the body. In severe cases, allergies or absorption of harmful substances may occur, so during the selection of pure cotton children’s towels, it is best to choose ones with no peculiar smell, to prevent the purchase of products processed by inferior or heavy acid dyeing materials.
(1) Look at the hygroscopicity of the towel
That is to say, if you put a towel here and we drip it with water, the water immediately seeps into the towel, without slipping or spreading. What about a bad towel, it forms water droplets and does not seep, and the water droplets cannot hang, and it slides down quickly. We say that this is a bad towel because it is too soft and does not absorb moisture.
(2) Check to see if the color of the towel is fading
Kids cotton towels are generally dyed with reactive dyes, and the dye molecules are covalently bonded to the cellulose molecules to fix the dye on the fiber. During the reaction, some dyes are combined with the fibers, and some dyes are hydrolyzed and adsorbed on the surface of the fibers, but they are easy to fall off without covalent bonding. When dyeing dark towels, a large amount of hydrolyzed dyes is adsorbed on the fibers, which is difficult to wash, so there will be decolorization during the first washing, which is unavoidable. If the color of the light-colored towel is more faded after the first washing or the color of the dark-colored towel is still faded after repeated washing, it is caused by the unqualified dye or the inaccurate dyeing process, and it is an unqualified product.
Try to go to professional children's online shopping malls and large shopping malls to choose products from regular manufacturers.
Qualified kids cotton towel products should have standardized signs and indicate the manufacturer, place of origin, telephone number, trademark, implementation standard, washing method, etc.
High-quality towels are generally softer, fluffy, and elastic.
Good towels are dyed in light colors, with clear patterns, uniform loops, and neat seams.
The above content teaches you how to see if the quality of pure cotton children's towels is good or not, and how to choose high-quality kids cotton towels. For the sake of children's health, I hope that parents and friends can understand more and create a healthy growth environment for their children.
