How do I make my new sheets soft?

Softening New Sheets

New sheets are usually stiff because of the chemicals and sizing that the manufacturer adds. To remove this, try washing with less detergent than recommended (as detergent will also make clothes stiff), and add 1 cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle. Vinegar works great at removing detergent and sizing build up. You may also want to add an extra rinse cycle.

You cant add anything to the rinse of these new front loader machines. It only allows you to add softner, bleach and/or detergent. Any recommendations?
