It is of a good reason that a bathrobe is called a perfect comfort essential. It is a wardrobe accessory that provides you with added comfort as you get out of the shower or as you go about your daily activities. If part of your morning routine is to snuggle up in a robe as you watch your favorite movie, you can count on spa robes made of high-quality fabric. Robes that last for years are of superior quality and therefore it is essential if you choose one that is worth the money.

There are various ways you can utilize a robe. One way the common use of a robe is to wear after it after a bath to dry yourself and keep warm. You can also slide into your robe to add an extra layer of warmth during chilly conditions, over your pajamas. If you are looking for an absorbent material, then terry cloth would be a perfect choice that can even be replaced with a towel. Wearing a robe of high quality fabric will make you feel relaxed as you attend to various chores in the house.

What Type of Fabric is Best For Spa Robes


Spa robes come in different textures and weights. Some of the popular materials are silk, cotton waffle weave, Egyptian cotton, Turkish cotton, fleece, and satin. Your texture preferences, the seasons and absorption ability are factors you will consider when choosing your robe fabric. Micro plush robes are great if you are looking for warmth during the cold season and satin and waffle weave are ideal during warm seasons.

You also need to decide how you intend to use the robe before purchasing one. Perhaps you are looking for something to keep you dry after a shower. If this is so, Egyptian cotton or terry cloth will do just fine. The flannel would be a great option if you just want to keep warm. Silk or satin is mostly used by people who lounge within a spa reading a book or chatting with friends.

Turkish Cotton and Egyptian Cotton

These are very popular bathrobe materials and they are a favorite option for many because of the high-quality fabric used. The main difference between Turkish cotton and Egyptian cotton is the absorbency rate. Egyptian cotton fibers are long and are spun into dense and absorbent threads. Thus it becomes easier to pull moisture away from the body.

Turkish cotton fibers are less absorbent compared to Egyptian cotton. Nevertheless, they become fluffier as time goes by and so this is a great option if you want a robe that will be used for a long time. There are various lengths of bathrobes; most men’s robes will reach the ankle while women’s robes will range from mid-thigh to ankle length

Be organized

Linen is known to absorb moisture and folded spa wear may easily absorb moisture. You need to store such material far away from humid areas.


Ensure that your robes are neatly kept in painted or finished wardrobes. Unfinished woods can leave yellow stains on your garments as you hang or fold items. Do not expose fabric to hooks to hangers as this could rub in your fabrics.

Choose a storage that works for you. Items that are less often used, worn out or stained should be stored at an arm’s reach. Those that are rarely used should be stored on higher shelves. If you are organized, you will not end up wearing old and torn robes.

Make Wise Choice of Robes and Gowns

You will save a lot by doing a little researching before purchasing your gown. Consider aesthetics and practicalities when choosing spa wear. Delicate fabrics cannot withstand the high heat used in commercial laundry. You would want to avoid taking these to the laundry to avoid damaging them.

Robes of more exotic and fragile fabrics can be washed at home. You will need a big dryer or even two if you have luxurious and thick fabrics such as terry valor robes. A heavy robe will take longer to dry.

Velcro can be very damaging to your fabrics. Ensure you close Velcro before laundering. You also need to be careful when washing dark colors. The dye may ruin other times and therefore separate dark colored fabrics before you wash them. Frequent washing is not advised as it may result in the fabric fading. A trick to solving this problem is to obtain a sample prior to buying a full stock. Test the sample first to see whether it will fade after a few weeks of laundering.

Robes of 100% cotton are very absorbent and last for a long time without being worn out and that is why these are often used in spas.

Different Types of Fabric

  • Cotton: this type of material can withstand high temperatures during laundering. You can also use chlorine bleaches in white cotton. It does not scorch easily, however it will need a higher heat setting in order to dry.
  • Acrylic: this fabric can be dry cleaned or hand washed. Avoid drying this fabric on a hanger that has rust. Use a moderately warm iron when drying.
  • Micro-fibers: they can be washed or dry- cleaned. Avoid to over dry in order to avoid wrinkles. You can use a moderately warm iron to dry.
  • Polyester: you can add a fabric softener to your final rinse. It can be machine washed or dry-cleaned.

Common spa stains can ruin your robe and if you don’t know how to deal with it, the robe will be of no use. Paraffin is a common spa stain which may ruin your robe when you least expect it. Rub it with ice and then place the stained area between numerous paper towels and then press with a warm iron. If you want to achieve the desired results you can repeat the process many times. Good storage will also keep your robes in good condition.
