15 – Match your towels or dye them

One way to spot a luxury bathroom is matching towels. If your towels are already pretty old and mismatching color, but still usable, try dying them like Sweet Unwrapping Life did (see below), read more here.

If your towels are not as soft they used to be, try washing them with a cup of vinegar and then baking soda – you’ll have lovely, soft towels again.
