How do you stop bath towels from shedding?

Answer

Stop your towels from shedding by washing them in the washing machine. Add 1/2 cup distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle, and dry the towel without the aid of a dryer sheet. It takes several wash cycles to completely stop the shedding process.

  1. Wash your towels

    Wash your new towels with your favorite detergent. Follow the instructions on the towels' tags as to the best water temperature.

  2. Add vinegar to the rinse cycle

    Add 1/2 cup of distilled vinegar to the washing machine when the rinse cycle begins. Vinegar helps the towels release lint and any built-up detergent.

  3. Dry the towels

    Dry the towels in your clothes dryer when the washing cycle is complete. Don't add a dryer sheet or fabric softener.

  4. Use a lint roller

    Remove your towels from the dryer, lay them flat on any surface, and roll the towels with a lint roller. The lint roller removes any loose fuzz that didn't fall away in the dryer.

  5. Repeat the process

    It takes several cycles of this process to completely stop towels from shedding. Repeat the process from start to finish until you no longer see a large amount of lint being pulled away on the lint roller.
