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?

Question: We have an ongoing problem with lint in the sterilizing department of our operating theatre. The laundering is outsourced to a commercial facility.
A theatre textbook used by our students (Atkinson, LJ & Fortunat, N. 1996 Berry & Kohn's Operating theatre technique. 8th edition. Mosby: St. Louis) states "textile lubricants added to the final rinse during laundering minimize lint (p.197)." Could you provide examples of these lubricants? Are they the same as fabric softeners?
