Getting out of a refreshing bath or shower only to be met by a towel that seems like it has seen better days is not what anyone wants.

Fortunately, with these tricks you can prevent your towels from getting hard.

1.Add vinegar – A TikTok user Mama_Mila shared a trick to prevent towels from becoming hard. In the video, she explains that you should wash the towels at a temperature of 40 to 60° C. “Add liquid detergent and 120 milliliters of white vinegar instead of fabric softener,” she wrote. “Vinegar breaks down the detergent residue, leaving the towels soft and fresh.”

2.Use Baking soda – This helps loosen up fibres and cleans off any chemicals or grime, making your towels softer. Mix half a cup of baking soda with your normal amount of detergent. As an added bonus, baking soda naturally eliminates musty odours that may have built up.
