Is a bathrobe the same as a dressing gown?
A dressing gown is usually made from light-weight material and is meant to cover your pyjamas or nightclothes around the house in the morning or night. A bathrobe is usually made from a more absorbent material and is meant to help dry you and keep you warm after a shower or bath. Many people use a bathrobe as a dressing gown and vice-versa, so the distinction is less obvious these days.
What other use is there for a bathrobe?
Some people like to offer their guests a bathrobe and will hang them in the guest bedroom, a bit like you would find a bathrobe in a hotel bedroom. Other uses for bathrobes are to wear after a sport or gym session or in other circumstances where you may have to share a bathroom with strangers, such as when you are going to stay in other people’s houses, on campsites, etc.
Can I make my own bathrobe?
Yes, if you can’t find the size or colour you want, take a look at the huge range of terry towelling fabrics available by the metre here at Spotlight, and use a sewing pattern such as the Burda patterns for sale here to create your own bathrobe. You will find all the materials, tools and accessories you need to make your own bathrobe here at Spotlight.
How do I maintain my bathrobe?
Bathrobes made from terry towelling are 100% cotton and can be washed like towels. Always keep dark or bright colours sperate from light colours and where possible wash your bathrobe once on a cool setting before using, to remove any last traces of fabric dye. For bathrobes made from other materials, refer to laundry labels for specific instructions. Bathrobes can be dried in a tumble dryer or can be left flat to dry. Don’t hang very wet bathrobes on hangers to dry; the weight of the water in the cotton fibres may cause the bathrobe to stretch or get out of shape.
