"My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly.

This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!" Gotta try...
