  1. Question and Answer
    Our little bathroom has no window and just the exhaust fan to move the air around. It has nice shelves lining half of one wall where we store our towels, linens, and various bathroom items (no linen closet). The trouble is that the linens pick up a mildewish smell after about a week even with...

    Not the accent ones, but your bath/shower towels? Are they all one color or do you have a mix of several colors? All mine are different colors and I would really like it better if all of them were the same color or maybe just two different colors. My walls are white and yellow so I was...

    My favorite aunt used to wear a jacket made out of bathtowels and hand towels and wash rags. I cannot find a pattern or layout of this anywhere. Does anyone have any idea how to put this together???? I would love to make one for myself, dd and my mother. PLEASE help!! Thank you.
  8. Laundry
    I've been hanging my clothes outside on the clothes line to dry and yesterday hung out my bath towels and a couple of beach towels. So I'm just wondering, why do my beach towels dry soft and my bath towels are so stiff they could probably stand straight up on their own?
  9. General Chat
    I finally had the opportunity to buy new towels. It had been about 15 years.....I decided to go with all white because they can be bleached. I only bought 6 to start so I can see how it goes. What works best for you? White towels or colors????

    So, most of our bath towels are fraying badly on the edges where the binding is coming off, but they don't have any holes. I figure they have another year or two of wear left in them, especially if I redo the edges. Has anyone done this before and if so how would you do it? I tried googling...

    I'm trying to use more natural cleaners around the house, including homemade cleaners (so much cheaper!). I read somewhere that microfiber towels are the best for cleaning glass and are great to use on floors with a Swiffer. Does anyone have a source where I can get these cheaply? I've done a...

  14. Laundry
    Thanks to me forgetting some towels in the washer for 2 days, they smell mildewy after several washes. It is nauseating (then again I am pregnant...) I know using fabric softener coats the towels and they will not be as absorbent, so obviously that is not an option. Any other ideas? I was...

  17. Question and Answer
    Okay folks. What is a good towel and what's a frugal way to get them? I have bathrooms with towels that are stiff as nails. I've tried vinegar rinse and fabric softener (in the dryer). What am I doing wrong? Or do I need new towels? (I've actually ordered some) How do I know if I ordered...

  19. Pregnancy
    I'm making a list of items we need for her arrival in Jan. My last baby was also a girl and born in Jan so I'm saving a bundle on not having to buy any clothes. I'm wondering if there is anything else I can avoid buying. Is there any reason I really need special towels and washcloths for the...
