Clothes are not so soft -- Need laundry advice, please!
I've just moved to London, UK, and have a Bosch front-loading clothes washer.
I washed some dress shirts last week (using Persil non-Bio) and assumed it was the detergent that made the shirts feel not-so-soft afterwards.
Today, I washed some linens with Ecover detergent and the result is the same: my towels and sheets feel rougher now.
In the past, I have never used fabric softener and don't want to now. Any idea what the likely culprits are?
(I washed both times at 60C/140F temperature, if that matters.)
