Weirdys. I like towels crispy.

Kelly1978 Mon 25-Apr-05 14:14:59

crispy towels? why?

hunkermunker Mon 25-Apr-05 14:45:08

Well, not crispy, just not soft and fluffy! I want to be dry when I've finished drying myself, I don't want the water to bead and bobble and stay on me like on a soft over-conditioned towel

lol, fair enuff! I want to know the secret to fluffy towels tho.

soft towels suck. i like them all hard and starchy and rough.

The secret to fluffy towels is sticking them in the dryer.

Vinegar helps a little too, but the dryer is the key.

what do you do with the vinegar?

Only recently discivered the joys of tumble-dried towels. DP always tells me off for wasting electricity. Muslins are much nicer too.

As only one of us is in charge of washing whilst on maternity leave he can go ...

Sorrel put the vinegar in the fabric conditioner compartment instead of the fabric conditioner....

sorrel Mon 25-Apr-05 17:22:41

thanks cod -will experiment!

Gwenick they don't smell of vinegar at all, I use white vinegar to wash both nappies and towels (obviously not at the same time), no vinegary smell just nice soft(ish) towelling.....
