Hey everyone, it’s Andrea and I’m here to talk to you about musty towels, which are the worst. So I had a front loading washing machine and I’m sure you’ve heard this from other folks but it just made everything smell horrible. Well I finally got rid of my front loading washing machine, I couldn’t take it another day, but my towels and my sheets were still kind of musty. So I was trying to find a way to kind of give them new life and have them fresh smelling once again. And I broke out my two favorite cleaning weapons: white vinegar and baking soda. These two things are the best. They really could do a lot of heavy lifting around the house and they can make a really difficult job a lot easier.
So what I did is I took those towels, and I threw them in the bathtub and I filled up the bathtub with really, really hot water. And you can do this in your washing machine as well, just kind of fill up your washing machine. But I was doing a bunch of laundry and a bazillion loads and I didn’t want to hold up my washing machine for this project.
So I put it in the bathtub, filled it up with hot water, put all the towels in there and then I put about maybe a couple of cups of white vinegar. I kind of just put a bunch in there and kind of stirred it about a little bit and I let that soak for about an hour. After that, I drained the tub, filled it back up with really hot water again and put a cup of baking soda in the water and let that soak. After that was all over, I wrung out the towels, threw them through a normal wash load and I mean, I can’t even tell you. They smell amazing. I love it, makes me so happy. So now I’m getting out of the shower and my towels smell fresh and everything is right in the world again. So if you have any musty towels, if any of your towels smell super gross. Don’t throw them out, there is still hope. Use the friends, vinegar, baking soda, wash those towels up, get them fresh and you will not regret it. It’s worth every second.
Well thanks for listening guys, and we’ll see you next time.
