In this case, you may have to rely on a second wash with white vinegar.
This acidic ingredient can be picked up from supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco for 29p.
To dry towels, Mrs Hinch fans suggest drying them outside, then adding to the tumble dryer to finish.
Anne Ambler said: “I hang mine out until nearly dry then pop them in the drier. It always makes them lovely and soft.”
Carol Barber commented: “Dry on the line then finish in the tumble dryer with two ice cubes. Works every time.”
