Design magazine Inside Out offered up this compromise concept in its most recent print edition:
To keep your towels soft and fluffy, take them off the line before they are totally dry and finish them in the dryer.
Admittedly this is not a useful hint if you fall into the quite large group of Lifehacker readers who resist using a clothes dryer. But if you do, this might be worth testing out (and you should, of course, tell us how it goes for you in the comments).
