The viral secret to keeping your towels fluffy and clean

Luxurious spa-worthy towels in no time!

One of the best parts of staying at a nice hotel is the big, super fluffy towels they provide. It's a feeling that you just can't recreate at home without constantly buying new towels.

Usually, as towels are used and washed, they lose their softness and grow thinner and coarser. But now, thanks to TikTok user, @mama_mila_'s simple washing hack you can now have hotel-soft towels at home!

The only additional product required to breathe new life into your stiff old towels is white vinegar - which you most likely have in your pantry anyway.

In the TikTok, this super-clever mum explains her step-by-step towel cleaning system, captioning the video: "Say goodbye to stiff, crusty towels".

To revive your towels, first set your washing machine to between 40 and 60 degrees. Then put your towels into the wash, using your normal about of laundry detergent but replacing fabric softener with white vinegar.

Set them out to air dry until slightly damp. Then pop them in the tumble dryer until completely dry. "This will help softness and absorbency," she added in the video.

So, don't waste your money on new towels - bring your old ones back to life!
