My husband and I recently moved to a new home. Of course with all the excitement and stress there are many things we bought and many old things we got rid of. You know, to make the packing process a little bit easier on ourselves. (Ultimately, I ended up with 3 suitcases and two boxes for shoes & bags. My husband got half a bag and his kandooras hanged. Fair deal I say.) Now in the midst of our excitement we thought it best to buy some new towels. Nice expensive ones to match our lovely new bathroom. Off we went to study the market, and we toppled and turned every soft and comfy thing. We bought it to our faces and touched with our palms. We asked about thread counts like obnoxious towel-know-it-all's. When we finally found the one, oh-so-soft and colours so bright. Off white, to match our beige mosaic. It was soft and it was fluffy and it was the best we've ever seen. So we put down the dirhams because "expensive towels last forever" and we bought heaps.
Getting home so excited I couldn't wait to take a shower in my new bathroom and use my new expensive towels. After coming out from a thick cloud of steam, I reached for my towel and tried to dry up. My horror was to find fluff and cotton stuck in ever corner this towel touched! There was fluff in my feet and between my fingers, fluff in my hair and on my eyelashes! About to cry I reminded myself that this is silly, people starve around the world and you cry about towel fluff! So I grunted and pulled through and thought eventually this will stop, how can a towel have endless fluff?!
We presented a straight face and pulled through. We breathed fluff that filled our room. When the humidity in the bathroom rose the darn fluff even stuck to the walls! My husband always emerges with a beige cotton beard. Before he goes to work we do an emergency fluff check so he's not embarrassed with his peers.
It has now been three weeks since the move, fluff is everywhere even in my shoes. I have a vacuum ready every time we use these damn towels, to clean up the rooms so we don't have to breathe them. I have recently put my foot down and tried to find solutions. I thought, even if I never heard of this I'm sure we're not the only ones to go through this! Thankfully we are not. I found recipes and methods online that promise we can put the fluff behind us. Armed with vinegar, baking soda and a stiff thick brush. I promise I promise I will get rid if this fluff!
