Video Instruction: How To Get Mildew and Musty Smells Out of Towels:
The standard bath towel is ideal for most drying duties, from drying off after a shower, to wrapping up wet hair and drying off children. Most people like to have two sets of towels per person, that way, each person can have one set of towels in use and one set in the laundry. The most common towel fabric is cotton, since it is light weight, soft and absorbent.
When washing, do not use any bleach products in the washing cycle. After washing, use a high spin cycle to remove as much excess water as possible. This will help to reduce drying time. It is very important not to overload the dryer so that your towels have enough space to tumble properly. If the dryer is overloaded then the fabric can become harsh to the touch due to the constant abrasive action and the fluffy appearance will be lost.
A harsh texture to towels and an off-white color are signs of bleach damage. Avoid bleaching agents when washing towels. Fabric conditioner will reduce the absorbency of the towel, as it coats the yarn of the towel, making it less efficient.
The American Cleaning Institute has put out tips on care of bath towels. They claim that towels should be hung to dry between uses and washed after 3 – 4 normal uses or more often, if you participate in sports. The Institute recommendations to help keep your towels bacteria free and smelling fresh: After purchasing a new set of towels, wash them before using to remove any excess dyes or chemicals. Avoid washing bath towels with other garments for both efficiency and sanitary reasons. Use bath towels no more than 3 – 4 times before washing. Wash color towels in warm water and white towels in hot water. Instead of using fabric softener, which can make towels feel slimy and less absorbent, consider adding white vinegar to the rinse cycle. Be certain that towels are completely dry before folding and putting them away. Remember – a slightly damp towel can mildew.
