Cleaning Hack Shows Just How Dirty Your Bath Towel Really Is

At least... that's what we thought before one man revealed just how dirty even a so-called 'clean' towel really is.

Yep, Jared Guynes says he was shocked to see that his freshly cleaned towels were still covered in grime when his wife went to deep clean them.

And his Facebook post, which shows the bath they were soaked in full of dirty water, has left people rattled, to say the least.

Jared's wife had learnt about 'towel stripping' from YouTube - which is basically where you deep clean your towels with Arm & Hammer baking soda, borax, Oxi Clean, and hot water in a bathtub, and let them soak out all their excess grime overnight.

"In this case she took our collection of clean towels, let me say that again, the towels were totally clean, washed and folded and in the linen closet, completely clean, completely normal," he wrote.

"The story that she told me is that over the years of use, microscopic amounts of soap and detergent get locked in to the fibres of the towels.

"Subsequently that stuff gets gummed up and can also trap microscopic amounts of dirt and grime and bacteria, even after going through the washing machine with detergent.

"So after seeing someone else do it she decided to do the experiment on our own towels here in the tub."

He warned: "The towels at your house, no matter how clean you think they are, are probably this nasty too".

In the interest of transparency, Jared told followers of the post that his towels were blue and brown, so some of the colouring could have been dye.

However, he added that when he tried the same trick with white towels, "the results were still a very concerning and disgusting looking grey....sort of like Cracker Barrel gravy or something."

Jared's post now has over 144,000 'shares' on the platform, with many wanting to impart his wife's wisdom on their loved ones.

How can I get my bath towels to smell good?

Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to the wash. Make sure the towels are completely dry. Vinegar is a great deodorizer, plus it works as a fabric softener. The vinegar smell dissipates as it dries, and it does not cause reactions on my skin, and I have very sensitive skin.

If you have a little time to wait...find out when JC Penny has their sale...I think they call it "White Sale" and you can get a huge bargain on really nice towels. For the price of a ok towel at Walmart, you can get a very expensive, very nice towel(s)..you might also keep your eye out for their after Christmas sale. .sometimes the towels are around 60% off then. Huge bargain and lots of variety. You might even try their website and look at the clearance items as well as the JC Penny outlet store

sounds like it might be the machines fault, try using a washing machine cleaning powder, a lot of scum and dirt collects on the outer side of the drum you cannot see, eventually resulting in an undesirable smell being washed into your clothes. if that doesnt work and its the towels, buy new ones! or try a dry-cleaner

how to properly wash and dry bath towels?

You will always get lint from towels, even after years of washing and drying you will still get some amount of lint. Never put anything else in with towels to dry, like blankets or sweaters, that's where they get those pilings from.

How can I get a musty odor from my Bath towels and wash clothes?

It is not your machines. If they are bleachable lighter colors, you do not have to do anything but bleach them with chlorine bleach. (You need to make sure that you believe you can use chlorine bleach on them. I can not know the details of all your washable garments & stuff.) If they are not bleachable, try T detergent (Are we allowed to say?) with non-chlorine bleach already added to the laundry soap. (It works for me.) I had the same problem. They turned out looking clean but, they did not smell good even though I used the ok detergent. So I figured out that they would not smell bad if they were not "harboring bacteria". So I used bleach & presto, the smell was gone!! I found that I did not have to add bleach everytime that I washed my towels, maybe sheets, or kitchen linens, whatever does not smell good, but only once in a while, as necessary. Our bodies, if you truly knew how many thousands & thousands of (microscopic) dead skin cells that are sloughed off of our bodies onto our bathtowels, ESPECIALLY. Also, our sheets & clothing- you would be truly shocked. Even kitchen washcloths get to smelling bad if you do not wash them & get a new one daily. Sponges, because of the way that they are made, can possibly poison us. You have to go to extra trouble to disinfect those. I do not use them generally I hope this helps.

ELIYA Hotel Bath Towels Buying Guide
ELIYA How Do I Purchase Quality Hotel Bath Towels? You don't want to purchase hotel bath towels that feels rough on your skin, but how do you ensure the quality and softness of the towel? Based on the safe side, it is best to choose 100% cotton towels because they are soft and absorbent, and as they age, they tend to only become softer and more fluffy. They are also best if your skin is soft because it does not feel too rough. 100% combed cotton towels are a good choice because combed cotton removes shorter fibers to keep the hotel collection towels strong and prevent pilling in the future. (Combed cotton towels: This means that the cotton has been brushed to remove short fibers and straighten remaining fibers, which makes the hotel style towels fabric softer and increases durability. ) Synthetic materials, such as polyester, are cheap, but not as soft or absorbent. These types are usually used for tea towels or for cleaning purposes. If you want hotel towels that feels comfortable for client's skin, it is best to stay away from these towels because hotel guests will not appreciate it. However, if towel budget is an issue, towels with cotton and polyester blends (also called "polyester cotton") are a safe choice because they combine the advantages of both materials. Finally, we suggest to use hotel bath towels with double stitches, because this will give the towel extra grip and a strong hem. The Weight Of ELIYA Hotel Bath Towels Hotel bath towels weight is measured in GSM, which stands for grams per square metre. Generally, you can assume that the thickness and absorbency of the hotel quality towels will rise to be proportionate with their GSM weight as there will be more or longer loops in the material.  For example, 450-500 GSM hotel towels are usually considered lightweight, it suitable for 2-3 star hotel or economical hotel, with 550-600 GSM as medium weight, it suitable for 3-4 star hotel or local hotel and 600-650GSM and above are classed as heavyweight, it will suitable to use for luxury five hotel. Take some time to think about how often the towel will be used, especially in hotels where towels may not be changed if a guest is only staying a couple of days. Lightweight hotel bath towels will dry quicker but won’t feel as thick, whereas the opposite applies to heavyweight towels. Caring Guides For Hotel Bath Towels * All Eliya hotel cotton towels can be washed up to 60° * Make sure to wash all hotel collection towels with detergent before use, as this prevents thread pulling. * Try to wash hotel towels on their own, as washing towels with clothes that have zips can cause snags. If this does happen, make sure to cut them off with scissors before they get worse.. * Shake Eliya towels before you put them in the washing machine as this will allow the detergent to sink in. * Use fabric conditioner sparingly and avoid using it in the first few washes of a new hotel style luxury bath towel, as these lubricate the fibres and reduce absorbency.
