Step 1: Consult the care label
New towels should be washed before you use them to remove any chemical coatings and to help reduce lint. Before washing, remember to check the care label. Some towels may have trim or other decorative fabrics that are different from the normal cotton towel, which can affect which wash and dry cycle you use.
So, there you have it. As long as you’re careful with your settings, you can put towels in the tumble dryer without them becoming stiff or scratchy.
It’s best to experiment with different heat settings, loads and drying times to find what works best for your dryer and your towels!

Step 7: Fold towels when dry
Wait until towels are completely dry before removing them from the dryer, as any remaining moisture can cause musty smells. Fold towels and store them in a cool, dry spot to keep them fresh and fluffy.
