Getting the Stink Out

I am going to share with you a very stinky discovery.  So stinky, in fact, that I thought about just throwing it all away.  But I experimented a little and luckily, it worked! 

It has been cold and rainy here for days.  Weeks, it seems!  So I thought the best way to combat that was to prepare for summer.  I went rummaging in the linen closet for the beach towels.  I wanted to put them front and center for easy access.  When I began to refold some of them I thought “what’s that smell?!”  When I took a whiff of one of the towels, I was shocked!  It stunk like mildew. 

So I set out to get the stink out!  First, I did a little research.  I found on the Internet that Ammonia works best, but being that I like all of my remaining brain cells, I decided to find something less harsh.  I settled on white vinegar.

I poured one cup of vinegar into the detergent tray of my washer and about a half cup directly into the washer itself on top of the towels.  I set it to the hottest cycle I could and ran it.  When the cycle was complete I ran it again, with detergent on the hottest cycle.  And when that was done, I dried it like usual.  Guess what?!

It worked!!!!  No more stinky towels!!!  I think now I will be doing every towel in the house!
