Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to wash your towels. Some people don't mind, you know, washing their towels in cold water. I use cold water always 'cause you know, I try to conserve energy. But if you're a little more concern about if the towels been laying around and it's been wet for awhile, it may have extra bacteria in there, in that case, you probably do want to wash it in hot water. Throw your towels in the washing machine and add, you know, your favorite detergent; powder, liquid, it really doesn't matter. You don't want to over stuff your washing machine or the agitator will get stuck and your washing machine will start jumping and it's really loud; you don't want that to happen. You don't want to over stuff your washing machine with towels. When it's done go in through its cycle, you know, take the towels out, pop them in the dryer, put your; always use fabric softener sheets in your dryer with towels because they're really bad about static clean. So you want, you know, a fabric softener in there to prevent that from happening when you're folding them so you're hair is not standing on end while you're doing laundry. Let them go through their cycle as normal, take them out, fold them and it's that simple. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you wash towels.
