Is there anything better than stepping out of a hot shower to a soft, fluffy towel? The right towel can make your everyday routine feel like an at-home spa. However, too often we are greeted with hard, crunchy towels that never quite feel like they did when you first purchased them. How do you keep towels soft, fluffy, and absorbent? Read on to find out!
Start with a Good Towel
When purchasing a towel, look for a dense, fluffy towel made of high quality fibers, like cotton or bamboo. A higher quality towel will last longer and provide a cushier feel.
Don’t Overuse Detergent
Using too much laundry detergent is a common problem, particularly with those who use liquid detergent. A heavy pour can result in the detergent not fully washing away, leaving crunchy, hard towels. The easiest way to avoid this issue? Use Dropps Laundry Detergent Pods! Dropps pods are perfectly proportioned. Hello, clean towels–goodbye, leftover detergent residue!
Use the Right Fabric Softener
Traditional fabric softener coats laundry with an icky, sticky coating. This coating may help fabrics feel softer at first, but the clogged fibers are far less absorbent–a big no-no for towels! Try Dropps Fabric Softener pods for extra softness. Our natural fabric softener pods are made up of tiny minerals that flow through the fabric, naturally softening towels without reducing their absorbency. Looking to really replicate that spa feeling? Try out Lavender Eucalyptus or Orange Blossom scented softeners to add a bit of aromatherapy to your routine.
Know Your Dryer Settings
There’s no need to turn the dryer heat all the way up! Try drying your towels on a medium setting to preserve the fabric while killing bacteria. Using high heat is a good way to sanitize a particularly soiled towel, but it can be harsh on fibers (and your electricity usage)! Don’t forget to add a Wool Dryer Ball to reduce drying time and add some extra chemical-free softness. You can even add a few drops of essential oils for an extra boost of scent!
