Answer: Understand that the quality of the dye process can make a difference in how well color holds up in any fabric. Lesser quality goods are generally dyed in atmospheric dye becks, which is cheaper than dyeing in pressure vats. At best, follow the directions of the linen manufacturer. Also wash at low temperatures, avoiding any type of bleach and enzymes in the detergent.
If you have real good terry, which isn’t badly soiled, use a liquid detergent dispersed in the water before adding the terry linen to the washer.
