2019 Roundup: The Blogs You Loved The Most This Year

| Dec 12, 2019 2:00:00 PM

We’re just as excited as you are for the festive season and end of year celebrations. 

But before we jump into 2020, we feel it’s important to take a look back at 2019 and share some of our most popular posts. We published a blog post nearly every single week this year, but some outshone the others. These ten posts got the most traffic from our readers (they’re some of our favourites too)...

1. Guest Post: How to Launder Spa Towels Successfully

This blog by Steve Anderton from LTC Worldwide- the UK's leading textile care specialists, regularly seen in the press - will tackle everyone's spa experience nightmare - smelly, oily, yellow towels. Unfortunately, the essential oils used in spas are notoriously difficult to remove and holes in "young" towels and stubborn brown stains are common. This can be a thing of the past with Steve's top tips though.

2. Press Release: Hydrofinity Has The Only Washing Machine In The World With Environmentally Preferred Status

At the end of 2018, the Hydrofinity washing machine became the first commercial washer globally to be awarded Environmentally Preferable Product Certification by the international body, SCS Global Services. See what factors were considered during the life-cycle assessment in this press release.
