Reducing Lint with Anti-Static Compounds

Question: I read that to reduce lint from towels you should add an anti-static compound to the last rinse cycle. What should I use as an anti-static compound? Is there a brand name? Also I’m getting blue lint on my white towels how do I avoid that?
- Jessica Giguere

 

 

Answer: Most good fabric softeners contain anti-static ingredients. There are a number of good softeners available, but check the packaging claims to see if they advertise anti-static ingredients. Concerning the blue lint on white towels - if you have blue towels and white towels, you should be washing them separately and drying them separately. If the towels are blue and white in color consider using a softener in the final rinse and add a dryer strip to the drying process this should pull off any loose lint on the towels.
