My husband came from a home where his parents did not own a dryer. Not that they could not afford it but they hung all of their clothes and it drove me crazy when I went there to visit them because their towels were really hard from hang drying them and I could not stand the fact that there were so many different things of lint on them. When you dried off you would get the lint all over your body, it was really disgusting. The bath towels that we have are really nice and I told my husband to wash them that he should not use fabric softener or a dryer sheet as that would coat the towel and it would not be as absorbent for us when we got out of the shower. There are a lot of people that told me this so I stopped doing it but now he wanted to help with the laundry.

The people in the store told me that I was not going to be able to use the towels as well if I were going to have a lot of fabric softener on them and I had never thought of it that way before. I spent some time talking to my husband about the visit that we were going to have with his family this upcoming weekend and I told him that it was important that we were going to be able to go and be comfortable that is why I thought we were going to have to bring our own towels. I did not want to go and see what they were going to say but he told his mom that we liked our own towels and we did not want to dirty any of their own laundry while we were there.
