A towel is the most massively useful thing an interstelliar hitchhiker can have.
~ The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy

I prefer cloth towels. I have kitchen towels on the backs of the chairs at the kitchen table so if hands get greasy or sticky they can be wiped on the towels and when dirty I change and wash them. I also keep them on the refrigerator door, by sink, and where I eat.
My favorite one is a Beach Towel in my school/trail pack. The towel has a pocket in a corner you can stuff the towel into and use it as a pillow or using the straps on it carry it on your back. It has so many uses.

You're not using fabric softener, are you? A good hot wash should help remove any "dressing" in the fabric.

Thanks Pat,

I never used fabric sofener on any of my towels.
I have tried washing with different washer soaps. I even tried vinegar rinse. No Luck. They still jus smear the warer around.

Try this "tip" that was forced on us while living in WWII reconverted army barracks that served as married student housing at Texas A&M back in the 70's--wash your deadbeat towels in bleach and hot water during a regular wash cycle---then AIR DRY-----don't use the dryer at all as there still may be residual fabric softener on the filter which is why they get clogged in the first place------ my poor college student towels sucked the moisture out of the air they were so dry!! Good luck!
