How do I wash my Mizu Towel?

We recommend machine washing in cold and gentle cycle for optimal washing to maintain the good quality of the towel, however you can also wash it in hot water and high tumble dry.

Why are the sensing areas always showing up as pink? 

​This actually means that there is still some soap left on your towel after you have washed it. Some brands of detergent (e.g., Tide) don't dissolve as well in water compared to other brands. Please try another brand of detergent and run it through a wash again and you should see that it has turned blue if all the soap has come off. 

Why are the sensing areas not changing colors?

Sensing areas won't change color unless they detect contamination that requires cleaning. For instance, after repeated contact with bacteria, dirt, or sweat. To test this, you can use something with a similar chemistry as sweat, such as Sprite, and it will most likely show a change. 

Is it made in Japan?

It's actually made in China. Only a portion of the towel from Japan and then it gets sent to China to a Japanese factory that specializes in towels for Japanese companies. This factory specializes in towel products destined for the Japanese market. We do this to ensure that the towel is high quality and follows Japanese craftsmanship principles while remaining affordable. 

How can I tell if they have silver in them or not?

Although difficult with the naked eye, if you look close enough you may see the different threads. Otherwise, there are also various machines/detectors where you can use a sensor to check silver content.
