Liz also suggested washing the towels on a warm cycle and using only half the amount of detergent.
She used baking soda in the washing machine’s barrel to dissolve dirt and grease in the water.
Vinegar is also a common natural product used to kill bacteria and disinfect surfaces as it is made from acetic acid.
The most unusual tip she used was adding two tennis balls to the dryer to make the towels softer and thicker as the ball bounces around.
After sharing the video, others said the tips were “so simple but so effective.”

In an earlier clip, she also revealed how often to wash towels and bath mats to maintain cleanliness and prevent bacterial growth.
“Towels absorb a lot of water and stay moist for hours, which is the perfect breeding ground for unwanted germs,” she wrote.
In the video, Liz said towels should be washed daily, while bath mats should be washed twice a week.
“Washcloths that you use to lather and scrub in the shower should air dry and be washed after each use,” she wrote.
Liz’s cleaning tips are also recommended by The Cleaning Institute, who also suggested washing towels after three uses.
If you shower every day, wash your towels twice a week to remove any germs.
