  • 1 cup plain white vinegar, divided
  • detergent


Step 1

When washing the towels, add 1/2 cup of plain white vinegar into the detergent bin. Run the wash with just the vinegar and no detergent. Once the cycle is through, wash the towels again, adding the detergent, and by this time, add another 1/2 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle. This will leave no stink on your towels. For a softer and fluffier texture, it’s important that you don’t overfill the washer, cut back on your detergent, don’t over-dry, use just medium heat, and fold them as soon as you take them out of the dryer.

Step 2

Now, to increase the longevity of your towels, consider not using fabric softener in your towels. It can coat the fibers of your towel, leaving it stiff and reducing its absorbency. You can replace your fabric softener with plain white vinegar. If you really insist on fabric softener, do not use a liquid one.
