WHY DID IT GET HARD SO FAST?

I just bought a bunch of towels and they were fluffy soft....but after a few washes they're hard as a rock.  Just using normal detergent on them....no bleach, etc.  Tumble dry on medium.  How do I soften them up again?

Use less detergent, rinse well, and use a lower spin speed, if possible.

Quoting schultzal: Use less detergent, rinse well, and use a lower spin speed, if possible.

Maybe half as much detergent as a regular load and an extra rinse?

Do you use fabric softener or drier sheets?

That might work. You can also use vinegar in the rinse cycle to help soften them.

Oh and maybe wool dryer balls. Fabric softener decreases absorbency, so I wouldn't go that route.
