Over time towels can become dull and smelly and less absorbent. They develop a build up of washing powder and fabric softener and generally just look, feel and smell yuk.
If you use our homemade laundry powder and add vinegar to the final rinse you shouldn’t ever have this problem but if you do need to freshen some towels then try this for a great savvy result.
First put the towels into the washing machine on a hot or cold cycle with 1 cup of white vinegar ( I added the vinegar once the machine was full of water), then when the cycle has finished run it again on the same cycle with 1 cup of bicarbonate of soda baking soda. Remember not to add any laundry detergents or fabric softeners to the wash, just vinegar in the first load and baking soda in the second.
Your towels will come out feeling and smelling much fresher and cleaner, less grimy and more absorbent than they went in! You’ll love it!
