Mum shares washing hack to transform your towels from old and stiff to 'spa-worthy'

The mum says the first thing to do is throw your towels in the washing machine between 40C and 60C.

Add liquid detergent but instead of using fabric softener, add half a cup of white vinegar instead.

Once the cycle is complete, shake the towels out and leave them to air dry until they are only slightly damp before throwing them in a tumble dryer for a few minutes to finish the job, which she says helps with softness and absorbency.

Showing off the brilliant final results, the mum writes: "The vinegar breaks down the residue from detergents, leaving towels soft and fresh.

"Level up your self care routine with spa-worthy towels."

With people asking questions in the comments, the mum confirmed she used plain white vinegar and said the smell isn't left on the towels after the wash.

And the best news is it works for clothes and bedding too.

People thanked her for sharing the video, with one replying: "I never use fabric softener on my towels, notice it ruins the original texture of the towels, but thank you for this tip!! Wooh."

Another said: "Trying this!!!"
