    Well see, our sun down here doesn't make them go hard. Our sun is just at the right temperature.

    I hear you can put bicarb & vinegar in the washing machine as a fabric softener also...

    And if the bicarb and vinegar doesn't soften the pillowcase Grey's at least you know that no dog will pee on it.

    And thats where the Epsom salts can be used as well.

    DA.... you took the words right out of my mouth. When towels are new they don't seem to absorb water to well or dry body completely. I don't use fabric softener in towel or tea towel wash though as it makes them to soft to adsorb water 100%, i find that dryish/stiff towels absorb & dry body much better than fluffy soft ones.

    Me too

    New towels get washed twice before being used. Same with sheets/pillowcases. Towels are washed on a normal cycle in cold water. Sheets and pillow cases are washed twice on normal cycle with fabric softener. If you have a dryer I find popping them into the dryer rather than the line helps a lot to soften them.
