Yuck! I hate getting out of the shower and drying off with a towel that smells like mildew. Lately all of my towels smell, even right out of the dryer. I decided to try and get the stink out instead of just buying new ones.
Towels can start smelling from mildew and detergent build up.
I first washed my towels on hot with one cup of vinegar. I then washed them again on hot with half a cup of baking soda. You don’t add any detergent to either of the washes.
Now my towels smell fresh and clean again!
