To use Smelly Washer Cleaner:
Most users find adding 1 level cap to a hot setting and allowing the washer to complete will remove odor. More extreme cases may need to do a long soak or “cleaning” cycle. If the washer doesn’t have a “clean” or “soak” cycle pause the washer and allow it to soak.
If odor persists or returns: Add 1-2 caps (tbsp) of Smelly Washer or Smelly Towel Cleaner either directly into the tub or through the detergent dispenser (even liquid dispensers) with a full load of white towels or laundry. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area. Intermittent pausing to soak and restarting will give the cleaner time to dissolve the mold, bacteria and residue.
To clean your dishwasher with Smelly Washer: Split a level cap of cleaner between both dispensers and the floor of the unit. Start a hot cycle and allow it to finish. More extreme cases may need to reapply and/or allow the unit to soak.
To use Smelly Towel Cleaner:
To initially remove odor from your towels and clothing use a level cap of Smelly Towel in place of detergent. More extreme cases will need to do a 2 hour soak. Smelly Towel Cleaner also makes a great detergent booster. Just add a 1/2 tsp to your regular detergent to really enhance colors! It won’t hurt to use Smelly Towel Cleaner with every load but it isn’t cost effective. If odor returns washing habits should be changed.
Other uses: Smelly Washer Cleaner can be added to hot water in a spray bottle to clean or sanitize your rubber door gasket. Stains impregnated into the gasket may take repeated appliaction and/or vigorous scrubbing to lessen or remove. It can also be used to naturally clean showers, bathtubs, hot tubs, canvas, window trim, etc. by applying with a spray bottle.
