Preventing Towel Lint

How do I remove the stubborn lint from new towels? I washed them 3-4 times without fabric softener and dried them in the drier without the drier sheets.

I have new towels that leave red fuzzy lint. I washed several times and they still leave red lint all over skin. How do I get rid of the lint? Would ironing work?

They are defective and should be returned to the store. (04/19/2005)

You could try using white vinegar as your final rinse, it will reduce lint. (04/23/2005)

I bought some new kitchen towels and have washed them a couple of times. I am wondering how I can reduce or eliminate the lint I get from these. They are black and white and every time I use them, they leave little black threads on whatever I am wiping down. Any tips are gratefully appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Preventing Towel Lint

They are not necessarily defective. Some types and grades of cotton lint more than others. Keep washing and try the vinegar rinse. Good luck. (05/02/2008)
