Most people never really think about cleansing their towels. After all, towels are primarily used to wipe water off of a CLEAN body. However, most people use the same towel for a few days in a row. The towel keeps absorbing and holding in the water, day after day. Then you wash the towels with fabric softener and detergent, which can cause build up with every wash.
The end result? A mildew-y smell and less absorbency-not to mention your towels begin to feel like Brillo pads on your soft, smooth skin! YIKES!
Have no fear, you won’t have to purchase new towels. All you have to do is refresh them a little! It is recommended to do this every 3 or 4 months to keep your towels smelling and feeling their best.
What you will need:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1 cup white distilled vinegar
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
What to do:
- Combine the vinegar and lemon juice.
- Wash all of your towels on one normal hot wash with the white distilled vinegar and lemon juice mixture.
- Wash for a second time on a normal hot wash with the baking soda only.
- Dry as usual.
- Enjoy the freshness!
