Towel Reviver

It's not easy being a towel. All that dirt and oil, hard water and friction can really beat a textile down. If you've found that your towels have become rough, less absorbent or otherwise lackluster over time, offer a little TLC in the form of baking soda to keep them looking and feeling their best. Baking soda helps loosen up fibers and removes chemical residue and grime, thus restoring your towels to their formerly soft and fluffy selves. Plus, baking soda naturally eliminates musty or mildewy odors that result from leaving damp towels lying around for too long. A word to the wise: Don't put too many towels in your washer at once. A too-​big load = not enough room to properly rinse your towels in the washer or properly fluff them in the dryer. For most machines, two or three bath towels at a time, along with hand towels and washcloths, will probably give you the best result.

For 1 use
  • 1/2 cup baking soda

    1. Set washer temperature to warm setting.

    2. Add baking soda directly to washer along with your regular detergent.

    3. Wash and dry as usual.
