There are quite a few strategies on how to get mildew smell out of towels. But all-natural Smelly Washer Cleaner is guaranteed to leave your laundry fluffier, brighter and free of unpleasant odors.
Mildew smell is often noticed on towels before clothing or sheets because cotton towels are thicker, absorb odors better and are pressed right to the face when wet. But before you can clean your towels, get to the root of the problem – your smelly washer!
To Keep Things Clean, Wash Your Machine
Most people use bleach, baking soda or white vinegar to clean washing machines. Separately, they can be effective at neutralizing odors. Bleach can be harmful to clothing if not used correctly. And all three won’t fix the problem if mold and mildew have formed above the waterline.
When washing large loads of laundry, dirty water and excess suds splash above the waterline and stick there. This residue, coupled with the warm, wet environment of the washing machine, allow mildew and fungus to flourish. So no matter how many cupful’s of bleach you run through a cycle, it will never reach the splash zone.
The best way we know how to get mildew smell out of towels is by using Smelly Towel Cleaner, an all natural cleaner that gives off a light garden scent. The solution works to eliminate mildew and fungus without harming clothes. It can even be diluted with warm water and used to clean every difficult-to-reach space for an even cleaner washing machine.
To keep your towels smelling clean, wash them in hot water and dry them in high heat. The increased temperature will work to kill off any residual mildew spores. Most clothing can’t be washed using this method, but towels are 100% cotton and are able to withstand the temperature.
