How to Keep Bath Towels Soft

There is nothing like the feeling of a warm new bath towel after a relaxing bath or shower. New bath towels are very soft and luxurious. They dry you quickly but in a short time even the highest quality towels will lose their absorbency and become tough if you do not take steps to protect them. Most towel care is concerned with washing and drying and this is where we will focus on.
There are many products on the market that purport to make your towels soft such as fabric softeners but most of the time, these products have a detrimental effect on your towels. The tips we give you here do not cost you anything as you don't have to buy any products, all you have to do is take a little time and your towels will reward you greatly and last a long time.

A mistake a lot of people make is overloading their washing machines. This is advised against because you want water to get to the fabric and flow through it rather than just around it. This helps to remove all the stuff that the towel has picked up such as oils, hair, soap scum and whatever else it has picked up. It is these things that make a towel less absorbent over time.

turkish bath towelsYou also need to wash your towels at the highest recommended temperature. This will ensure that oils dissolve and it will also give the towels a good wash and sterilize it.

Some people recommend adding white vinegar to the wash as a way of naturally making it soft. You do this by using the extra rinse cycle on your machine. Add the vinegar to the first rinse cycle.

Whatever you do, do not use fabric softener when washing towels. Although fabric softeners are developed to make clothes soft, they do not work very well with towels. All a fabric softener does is reduce the absorbency of the towels as it blocks the pores of the fabric. The white vinegar technique that we have described above is the best way of making your fabrics soft.

Just by following these simple rules, you will keep your towels nice and soft and last you a long time. If you also add an electric towel rail to your bathroom, you will enjoy warm soft towels every time you come out of the shower.
