Have you ever left your wet towels in the washer a little too long? Even if you run them through the wash again it’s likely that you aren’t going to get rid of the mildew smell. From then on every time you get out of the shower all you can smell is mildew! It’s gross enough to make me to want to throw the towels out and buy new ones.
Even if you never have accidentally left the towels in the washer, after time they can get a smell to them that isn’t exactly pleasant. I have the best trick for eliminating this stench with adding literally no extra time to your normal cleaning routine and chances are you already have the supplies to do it in your home right now!
1 cup vinegar
Add one cup of vinegar to the wash replacing your detergent. Throw the towels in the washing machine and run them on the hottest cycle. After this, your towels should not have any mildew smell. I have used this trick for years and it has never not worked for me, I hope it works for you too!
