I’m pretty good at doing laundry on time from wash to dry. I actually enjoy doing laundry if you can believe it. However, since having my 4th baby a couple of months ago, it has been a bit of a struggle. Just the other day I forgot about a load and to be honest, I’m not sure how long it sat in the washing machine. It wasn’t until I took it out of the dryer that I noticed a strong mildew smell. Of course it was all my lounging wear so I’m freaking out a little of course. As I write this I am sitting in a towel waiting for the same load to dry for the 4th time.
What did I do differently this time you ask? Well, white vinegar does wonders for cleaning so I decided to throw that same load (that has been washed with detergent 3 times) in for a 4th time but this time I used hot water and 1 cup of vinegar (no detergent). It worked!!
So next time you think your going to gag a little from smelling your favorite t-shirt, try this method to get rid of smelly laundry!
