No matter how clean your body, or your towel is – they are dirtier than you would expect. Each time a towel is used, removes a layer of dead skin cells, acting as a exfoliator.
Damp towels are also the perfect breeding ground for germs, the longer they are left, the more the bacteria multiplies.
To stop towels smelling musty, add half a cup of baking powder to the wash load to freshen them up.
Towels should be put in the wash at 60°C every two days.
