THIS REALLY WORKS AND LAUNDRY IS SUPER SOFT!!! Soak a hand towel in fabric softener. Squeeze out any remaining drops from the towel. Hang it over a chair (or outside on a clothes line) to dry. My house smelled super clean for the three days while this towel was drying completely. Yes, it took three days! You must make sure it dries completely! After the towel dries you just throw it in your dryer along with clothes and use it as a dryer sheet for 40-50 loads before soaking again.
reusable dryer sheet. soak a hand towel in fabric softener and let dry completely. reuse for at least 40 loads.
Take your favorite liquid fabric softener and completely soak a tea or hand towel with it. Wring it out and let it dry completely, then throw it in with your next load. This mega fabric softener sheet should be good for at least 40 loads of laundry!
Travel tip. Sew a few stitches on a towel and keep your toiletry dry. Super smart!!
How To Get That Nasty Mildew Smell Out of Towels! Add 1 cup vinegar to your washer, no detergent and no fabric softener! Now run a complete cycle on HOT water. Now, you’re not done yet, run the same load again, but this time add just detergent. Then, immediately put towels in the dryer (with a dryer sheet if you want) and dry them completely.
Pinner said: I soaked the towels in hot water and about a cup of vinegar for about an hour. Ran a spin cycle to get all the water out, then put them in the dryer on high heat until thoroughly dry, then back in the wash with laundry detergent and baking soda for a normal cycle and dry. Worked! No more smelly towels.
