You undoubtedly have seen bottles of wine or whiskey that comes in a sack. With flour-sack towels, you can use the large 27-inch squares to make your own bottle sacks.
To start, unpack them and remove any tags and then unfold them and place them in the washing machine. You should machine dry them and then use them. Repeated washings will make them softer and more effective with every use.
Folks often feel compelled to use bleach to protect the dish towels’ crisp white material. However, this could damage the natural fibers of the towels. Not only will it make the dish towels less effective but it could even cause weakening and tears. The best way to whiten towels is to use white vinegar or non-chlorine bleaches made with hydrogen peroxide. This is not only better for the towels themselves but also for the environment.
You should avoid fabric softener like the plague if you want to maintain your flour sack dish towels. You simply do not need this item to keep the towels soft and plush. Using this item will make it harder to absorb the liquid. The fabric softener might leave a residue. Instead, a lot of people like to use white vinegar, which is less harmful and just as effective on the towels. Similarly, you do not need dryer sheets for the same reason.
If you have some hard strains, pour baking soda directly on the wet stain and let it sit. Make sure to attack wine or sauce stains immediately since they are hard to get out.
