Towel Tips You’ll Love

If you’ve noticed that your terry towels – including dish towels and face cloths – are harsh to the touch and seem to be hard and coarse, the problem probably is that they haven’t been prop­erly rinsed. Try using detergent only during the soak or pre-wash cycle in your machine and not during the wash cycle. By using only clean water during the wash and rinse cycles, your towels will get a thorough rinsing.

When drying, use a mid-range heat setting and remove and fluff the towels immediately after they are dry. To save energy and add a bit more freshness, hang the towels outdoors. When they are almost dry, pop them into the tumble dryer until completely dry.
