Are Your Towels Less Absorbent?

Ever wonder why your towels aren’t as absorbent as when you first got them?

Tips for When Your Towels Less Absorbent

It might be because you wash your towels with your other regular laundry. Washing them together can make your towels less absorbent. Wash them separately from your clothes and don’t use a fabric softener. Fabric softeners contain silicone oil that can make your towels greasy feeling and less absorbent.

If you’ve been doing this, add ½ cup of vinegar to your load of towels or presoak your towels with vinegar to fluff them back up.

Try this also on pieces like cotton tee shirts and underwear to make them softer although they may have a more static cling.
