Make your towels soft and fluffy with these tips from In The Wash on YouTube. I incorporate these tips whenever I wash my towels, and the results always get me – so effective! So, if you want your towels to last longer and make them soft, watch the video down below for the following tips.


#1 Cut the Amount of Laundry Detergent in Half

Using too much detergent when washing towels can make the fibers stiff and pack full of soapy residue.

#2 Use Vinegar to Remove Detergent Residue

Add about 1/4 cup of white vinegar into the fabric softener compartment during the rinse cycle to make your towels soft as well.

#3 Use Several Towels on Rotation

If you have several towels, use them as well from time to time so your current towels will not get crinkly over time.

#4 Don’t Wash Towels with Clothes

When you wash your towels together with your clothes, a lot of lint gets passed and transferred to your towels.

#5 Use a Fabric Softener

A very quick solution to make your towels soft is by using fabric softener.


#6 Use Water Softener Tablets

If you live in an area with hard water, this can cause your towels to get clogged with small mineral deposits, making them stiff. Water softener tablets will make this problem go away.

#7 Don’t Overload the Washing Machine

Do not overload your washer with towels as it will get heavy and may not wash properly as you intend it to.

#8 Wash at a Lower Temperature

High temperatures can damage the fibers in towels.

#9 Don’t Leave Wet Towels in the Washing Machine

Make sure you pull out wet towels from your washer as soon as possible the line dry them.

#10 Make Sure Towels are Fully Dry Before Putting Them Away

Storing damp towels makes the fibers stiff because of excess moisture.

#11 Don’t Dry Towels on the Radiator

To avoid getting your towels stiff and crispy, avoid drying them on radiators.
