Soft towels

Do you regularly have to dry yourself with a rough, hard towel after taking a shower? Have you already accepted that this is just a part of life? There’s no need for that! You can very easily make sure your towels will remain nice and soft. The reason why towels become rough and scratchy is usually that you’re making certain mistakes during the washing and drying.


There are a couple of things you have to avoid when doing laundry and one of those things is using fabric softener. Sure, your fresh laundry might at first become a little softer, but the towels will absorb a lot less and soap residue will remain behind in the fibres of the towels. It’s much better to use other techniques to make sure your towels come out soft. An example is to put them in the dryer at a low setting.
