Bring Your Towels Back to Life!

Recently when reading one of my favorite blogs, LifeHacker, I came across some really interesting cleaning tips. You can read those by clicking HERE. One that really caught my eye was about towels and how they can hold on to product build up making them less absorbant and smelly over time. Laundry is something I am VERY particular about and thought maybe I should try this because our towels have not been very fluffy or soft for a long time! So I tried it today and am very pleased! They are like new towels again, it even brought the colors back to life! If you do this make sure you wash all of them at once so they will all be the same color!
To Give it a try:
  • run them through the wash once with hot water and a cup of vinegar,
  • then again with hot water and a half-cup of baking soda
The dry as usual and you will be amazed!

Everything on the island always smells funky. The locals all use a cup of Fabuloso (yes the stuff you clean your floors with) or pine sol (not the choice of flavors) in the wash cycle of their clothes.

The question is...do they stay that way after you wash them again? But I'm totally trying that!

Sounds like a nice idea...and while I do love me some fluffy towels, it sounds a little eco-non-friendly (or should I say...wasteful?)...
Probably won't be trying that one on a regular basis...maybe only if special guests are coming to town--ha!
