Stinky Clothes Solution




After coming home from work, I forced myself decided to do a load of laundry when I realized that there was a load still sitting in the washing machine from the beginning of the week! UGHHH, the smell of moldy old gym socks mixed with rotten cheese (it was nasty boooyyy) came to mind when I opened the machine door. After re washing the laundry with soap, softener, and Downy unstoppables THREE TIMES, I started believing the smell was never going to go away and that my favorite maxi dress was about to be trash. I went through my mental Rolodex of things that get rid of nasty odors and vinegar was the first thing that popped into my mind. One cup of vinegar in a rinse cycle later, my clothes were odor free and I was a happy chica. The sweet smell of non moldy clothes success! Vinegar to the rescue yet again.
