Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and one cup vinegar, then a second time with hot water and a half cup of baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again.
Homemade Wrinkle Releaser...for every cup of water, add 1 tsp fabric softener in a spray bottle...I hate ironing so I always buy the Downy Wrinkle Releaser for $4...I made this and it works like a charm! I lay my clothes on the bed and spray them then rub them down with my hands and voila! The wrinkles are gone...such a time saver ~~ Shay
