The secret to
Indulging in the luxurious feeling of fluffy towels does not have to mean using a complete dryer cycle, which can drain electricity.
The first step to soft line-dried towels is to ditch the fabric softener. While it may seem like the obvious solution to soften towels, fabric softener can make towels stiff and scratchy when overused. Naturally soften towels by adding a cup of vinegar to your wash cycle, eliminating built-up residue and restoring the natural fluffiness without harsh chemicals.
Further, using too much detergent can also cause your towels to stiffen up, so less is more when washing towels. Lastly, line-drying your towels until their mostly dry will help you save on the cost of running a full dryer cycle. Once towels are damp, you can put them on a quick 10-minute cold spin in the dryer to increase fluffiness without using excessive energy or adding to heating costs.
