I have been washing my clothes for over 25 yrs and my mom always washing in cold water so I took the habit to wash in cold water except that once in a while I will wash my towels in hot water and other days in cold water and dry them in the dryer.
I was recently reading that you should wash your bedding, towels and underwear always on very hot water.
I find that doing that the underwear don't last and the towels fade really fast.
We were never sick in my family growing up and I raised my family with cold water and they seem to be fine.
What do you do? Do you wash everything in hot water?
