      How to Refresh Towels: Must try this // It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky.

    Who knew?? Use baking soda and vinegar to fix funky towels. Over time, and with many washes, your bath towels will build up detergent and fabric softener residue, leaving them both unable to absorb as much water and smelling kinda funky when they do.
