How to Prevent and Eliminate The Bad Smell In You Towels

How to Prevent and Eliminate The Bad Smell In You Towels. Towels are meant to dry you off when you get out of the bath or shower. But a damp towel, especially if it's not hung up properly to dry, can start to develop a musty odor. Even a washing machine can develop a musty smell and transfer that to the towels. Follow a few simple tips, though, and you should be able to get rid of bad smells in your towels.

Things Needed

Step 1

Stop using dryer sheets on towels. They will prevent your towels from absorbing water and lock in any bad odor.

Step 2

Clean your washing machine regularly. Run an empty load with a cup of vinegar or chlorine bleach once a month. It will help keep your machine fresh.

Step 3

Wash a load of towels that have an odor. Use your detergent. When it reaches the rinse cycle, add 1 cup of white vinegar. The vinegar will eliminate the odors.

Warnings

  • Hang towels on a bar or rack after taking a shower or bath.
  • Wash small loads of towels.
  • Don't use a towel more than three times between washings.
