Have you ever forgotten about a load of laundry and left it sitting in a damp, dark, tangled mess for hours before finally becoming aware of your neglect? If so, you have undoubtedly encountered that pervasive moldy musk that accompanies it. And you have likely also noticed that rewashing the load doesn’t do much good... unless you do this.
Adding a generous cup of white vinegar to the normal soapy cycle works wonders when it comes to removing musty smells. Combine that with a good air dry in direct sun and your laundry will be back to smelling fresh. So next time your loved one ditches a damp towel on the floor, crumpled into a ball, or when you absentmindedly leave your clothes at Auntie Maytag’s overnight, at least you will have a clear course of (affordable) action to remedy the stinky situation.
As per usual, vinegar to the rescue!
