Did you know that using fabric softener when washing or drying your dishtowels and bath towels will reduce absorbency?
Traditional fabric softeners add a coating to the material which helps with softness and static cling. Instead of using fabric softener when you wash towels, try using a dryer ball instead.
If you need to get that absorbency back, try washing the next load of towels with a cup of vinegar.
Can you tell a difference in the absorbency of your towels when you use fabric softener and when you don’t?
