Wet Towel Management - no wet towels on floor or in hamper
House rules: ALWAYS hang up a wet towel. When you want a clean one - remove the dry dirty towel BEFORE the next shower and put in hamper. Each person has their assigned place on a towel rack. (e.g. mine is left side, main bath). You can change as often as you want, but towels in hamper are dry
Toss a few old bath towels in the washing machine when you wash your shower curtains. The towels will rub back and forth against the curtain, which helps remove all traces of dirt and scum. Hang shower curtains back up right out of the washing machine. They will dry quickly and the wrinkles will fall right out.
Dryer Sheets - Cut them in HALF or Not at All for Bath Towels
Dryer sheets are chemicals that melt in the heat of the dryer that then coat your laundry. Use half or none at all for your bath towels and wash cloths, etc. This coating is what makes your towels less absorbent. This goes for liquid fabric softener, too!
