After using bath towels for a prolonged period, they become harsh and dry. So we end up buying new bath sheets spending a good fortune. Here you will know the key secrets to making an old towel as soft as a new one.
Brand new bath sheets most often feel plush and fluffy. To keep these two qualities intact, we have to take care of these bath sheets accurately. Here are some tips for making the old towels fluffy again.
Before using a newly purchased towel we should wash the towel properly. And if we follow the proper washing instructions from the very first day, the towel will never lose its glory.
Washing the bath sheets using hot water makes them super soft. This also works as a sanitizer and erases the stiffness in those towels. Before washing with hot water, make sure you read the label first to see if there is any restriction.
White bath sheets can be washed in hot water but colored ones may have some problem. Thus it is better to read the label before washing to avoid fading color. If there is any restriction about using hot water, carry on washing with cold water.
One important thing to remember is, you should never overflow your washing machine with bath sheets. These towels need enough room to move properly in order to get cleaned. This will also help the towels to avoid abrasion among themselves which will ensure longevity.
It is better to put two to three bath sheets every time in a washing machine, not more than that. Set the machine in the highest possible setting and don’t combine the towels with other clothing.
Vinegar is the secret potion which helps towel become baby soft and fluffy. Add half a cup of vinegar during the first rinse cycle. Vinegar is a natural fabric softener and does not harm the fabric at all.
It is great for removing oil out of the towels and removes the odor completely. The second rinse cycle will ensure that there is no vinegary smell left on the towels.
During drying using the dryer, put in some dryer balls or some brand new tennis balls before switching on the machine. This will ensure natural softness in towels by pounding them thoroughly. The towel will become fluffy as never before.
