Tips for Keeping Your Bathroom Towels Soft and Absorbent - Cass Brothers
  1. Use the Right Detergent One of the most important factors in keeping your towels soft and absorbent is using the right detergent. Avoid using fabric softeners or bleach, as they can break down the fiber in your towels and make them less absorbent. Instead, use a gentle detergent that is free of harsh chemicals.

  2. Wash in Warm Water To keep your towels soft and fluffy, wash them in warm water rather than hot. Hot water can damage the fiber in your towels and make them rough to the touch. Warm water is also effective in removing dirt and bacteria from your towels.

  3. Use Vinegar or Baking Soda Adding a cup of white vinegar or a half cup of baking soda to your wash cycle can help to remove build-up and restore your towels' absorbency. The acidity of vinegar can help to break down mineral build-up, while baking soda can neutralize odours and soften your towels.

  4. Don't Overload the Washer When washing your towels, be sure not to overload the washer. Overloading can prevent your towels from getting fully clean and can also cause excess friction between the towels, which can damage the fiber and make them less absorbent.

  5. Avoid Using the Dryer While using the dryer is convenient, it can also make your towels rough and stiff. Instead, hang your towels outside on a clothesline or inside on a drying rack to air dry. This will help to preserve the fiber in your towels and keep them soft and absorbent.

  6. Fluff in the Dryer If you prefer to use the dryer, you can still keep your towels soft by tossing them in the dryer with a couple of clean tennis balls. The balls will help to fluff up your towels and keep them soft and absorbent.
