How To

6 Tips for Softer Towels

Aug 31, 2020

A shower isn’t complete without a nice dry off with a fluffy towel, but what does it take to keep those towels soft? We’re shedding light on the do’s and don’ts of softening fabrics. Before you reach for fabric conditioner or dryer sheets, read on to learn why we don’t recommend it – and more tips for a plush finish.

Gather These Tools: 

All-Purpose Bleach Alternative, Le Labo Rose Signature Detergent, Dryer Balls

TIP 1:

Separate towels and sheets from garments to reduce lint and achieve a proper clean. Towels should be washed on a hot, long wash cycle, while most clothes don’t typically need such a rigorous setting.

TIP 2:

Towels should be washed and dried in small loads. Overfilled washers can prevent towels from getting a proper rinse (leaving behind a crunchy residue), while an overfilled dryer will leave towels damp (leaving them less fluffy and more prone to mildew).

TIP 3:

Cut back on the amount of detergent (do not use more than the recommended measurement) and add a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to help get rid of build-up. Because towels are bulky and durable, we think the more detergent the more power, right? Wrong. Too much detergent can leave a soapy residue, causing stiff towels.

TIP 4:

Resist the urge to use fabric conditioner or dryer sheets. Softeners coat fibers, thus reducing absorbency over time. If you must use a fabric conditioner, skip every other wash.

TIP 5:

Shake towels out before adding them to the dryer. If you throw a bunched up towel into the dryer, it will take longer to dry and may retain stubborn creases.

TIP 6:

Use Dryer Balls as an eco-friendly alternative to dryer sheets. They increase air circulation (cut down on drying time), prevent clumping and help fluff fibers.
