'Crispy' bath towels

(26 Posts)

Not quite sure what's happened but I've managed to end up with lots of crispy towels at the moment - haven't changed the washing arrangements but I think it's down to drying them in the hot sun - they have literally baked - Grrr!! Some of the older ones especially are really scratchy feeling and will not be nice to use anywhere 'sensitive' shock

Is there anyway that they can be salvaged and less scratchy?? Or is it time to get new towels and put these baked ones into the clothing recycling?!

I'm trying to stock up on old-fashioned huckaback (linen) towels, which dry skin on touching and dry themselves equally fast, the kind of thing people used before fluffy towels, so only available in charity shops as far as I know. (Ask your Gran).
