Adding a tablespoon of salt to the soaking water can benefit the absorbency of the towels.
Next, wash according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Buy quality towels, woven from long, massive cotton.
How do you know that the towels are quality? Well, towels should be “plump”, that is – weighty. “Lean” towels are less quality.
Towels dry only in a tumble dryer: because of the scale content in the water.
Drying and heating in a dryer crumbles the hard texture that sticks to the fabric.

The towels have been lost their color? Wash them in a short wash program with a cup of vinegar, and there is who adds half a cup of baking soda, instead of washing powder or washing-up liquid. Then dry in a dryer with a fabric softener spray or fabric softener sheets to remove the odor of vinegar sticking to the towels.
Wash with a small amount of detergent (washing liquid, washing powder) and put a relatively small amount of towels in the washing machine, so that the detergents are thoroughly washed.
Wash towels with bedding and try not to mix towels and other clothing items.
