The smell of musty & wet beach or bath towels is pretty gross.
In most cases, the problem is caused by a buildup of mildew. Ever wonder what the secret weapon to fight mildew is?
Well, turns out it’s vinegar. Follow these simple steps to get rid of all that mildewy nastiness.
1) Use REALLY hot water & put your towels in the washing machine.
Put in a cup of vinegar, but nothing else! Run the wash.
2) Wash the towels again, as you normally would.
So use your baking soda or laundry soap if that’s normal for you. However steer clear of any fabric softener or other products.
3) Dry the Towels on the ‘High Heat’ Setting.
Your towels should be thoroughly dry when you pull them out. If they’re not dry, put them back in, or move them immediately outside and hang them in the sunlight.
