Smelly Towel Cleaner

AND THE WINNER IS: SARAH!
CONGRATULATIONS!!

Do you have musty or stale smelling towels? It doesn't seem to matter how many times you wash them or what type of scented detergent or fabric softener you use, the towels just don't smell fresh? This is a problem we've had at our house for a while now.
So when I was given a chance to do a review/give away for smelly towels I was quite happy too. There had to be something to make my towels smell fresh when they came out the the dryer. Smelly Towel comes in powder form. it has a slight citrus scent when you open the container, but the towels don't smell like citrus out of the washing machine, they just smell like laundry that was hung out to dry - fresh!

After doing the first load of towels I've used Smelly Towels to wash dishcloths and the fuzzy blankets we use to keep warm while watching TV in the evenings. They all smell amazing! I even used it on a load of Son 2's work clothes that smelled like diesel, oil, solvent and who knows what.. (he works as a mechanic at the local John Deere dealer
ship). It even helped those clothes smell so much better!

All you need is one cap full to do one load. So the size container lasts for quite a few loads (24 treatments according to the container). I happen to have a new HE washer & it works wonderfully in it. If you happen to also have a smelly washer - there is a product for that too. SmellyWasher.com
has a great video and wonderful tips on how to remove odors.

NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!
One lucky person will get a bottle of Smelly Towels.

  6. I learned that Smelly Washer is not only useful for getting the mildew out of your washing machine. It can also be used in a regular load to help eliminate clothing mildew and odors. Simply add 1 tablespoon (or 1 capful) of Smelly Washer to your load of laundry (preferably with hot water), and agitate the clothes. Then stop the cycle and allow the clothes to soak in the solution for two hours. Complete the cycle as normal. This will be great for those times that I forget and leave the beach towels and bathing suits in the van - yuck!

  91. I did a cleaning and my washer smells worse! - You have a more extreme case! It's actually a good sign that it smells worse! In more extreme cases as the outer layers of fungus get dissolved away the inner layers are exposed to air and may smell worse. Do another overnight soak. If your washer is several years old it may take several soaks to remove the build-up of detergent and fungus inside your washing machine.

  95. I learnt that washers get mold in them, ick. I didn't realize this was a common problem, but we have an old top loader here that kind of smells of mildew. The clothes come out ok, but now I'm concerned about health. Also would love to try the towel product on my boyfriend's work clothes, he complains that they aren't really clean after washing. Thanks!

  112. you should add 1-3 gallons of hot water either through the door or detergent dispenser in order to raise the water level. Over the years of suds and soiled water splashing farther up the outer tub it can build up quite a layer of detergent/fungus.

    great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  135. To remove mold from the door gasket you can mix a teaspoon of cleaner in a spray bottle with hot water and spray the affected areas liberally. Allow it to soak for a long period (even overnight) and the mold should easily be cleaned. Mold stains impregnated into the rubber may take repeated applications and/or vigorous scrubbing.
