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 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.

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)

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)
