After years of getting fed up with soft things turning “scratchy”, I decided to experiment. Last year my mother-in-law got me a pair of soft white socks for Christmas and I was determined to keep them soft, I did.

Now when I have an item that I would like to keep soft and/or fuzzy like a super soft blanket my daugther received for Christmas last year, the inside of a sweatshirt, my daughter’s fuzzy PJ bottoms, fuzzy slippers, other pairs of socks soft, and more . . .

I don’t put them in the dryer . . .I have found that anything super soft, will stay soft if you don’t put it in the dryer, and hang it on a dry rack instead.

        I've struggled with this. Any tips for getting rid of the brittle air-dry effect?

          Works for me-- after soft, fuzzy item is completely dry, ( and it's good to do several of the items at same time) put them in the dryer on low heat with a slightly damp bath cloth or dish towel and turn on dryer for just a minute or two. Feels great to put those warm , soft socks on right then!

              @Readeramm some dryers have a no heat fluff setting. I use it a lot when I want to fluff up bath rugs after letting them dry on a rack.
