Our favorite tip: Lint will get on clothes when you dry your clothes in the dryer, clothes rub together and it creates lint. You can get rid of the lint by “shaving” it off with a disposable razor, yes it will take a while but it is well worth it if you don’t like lint on your towels or other items. For just over $10 you can get this fabric defuzzer thing that shaves the fuzz right off of fabric!
Tip #2: When you purchase towels wash them alone in very hot water with laundry detergent and 1/2 cup of baking soda.
Dry them on high until they are completely dry. Never use bleach on your towels. Bleach breaks down the fibers and causes lint.
I always add baking soda to my bath towels. It makes them soft and fluffy, removes any odors. When washing towels wash just towels nothing else.
Tip #3: A possible cause of lint on the towels is overcrowding items in washer.
Tip #4: When you are ready to toss your old bath towels and update them with new towels, here are some very helpful detailed instructions on how to care for new bath towels.
