I wash my towels and tea towels together. Sometimes the towels on their own, but they are always full of fluff. My washing machine doesn't seem to have a lint filter. I clean my machine after every 100 washes, but it doesn't make a difference. Does anyone have ideas?
Plz :)

There are some items which are lint givers, and others which are lint takers. You cannot wash lint givers and takers together. A dryer will do a good job of removing the lint. You might want to dry them at a laundromat to get any fluff out and from now on separate those items. My husband's socks and undershirts are washed with towels because they leave white fuzz on everything

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?

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