Give old towels new life

Give old towels new life

After time, towels build up a residue of detergent, fabric softener and body oil that causes an unmistakable musty odor. Rather than turning them to rags and buying new, try this quick fix for musty towels!

  • When empty, run your washing machine on a hot cycle with 2 cups of bleach to ensure it is free of bacteria, mold and other unwanted sludge.
  • After the bleach cycle has completed, put towels in washing machine with one cup of vinegar and wash with hot water.
  • Remove towels and replace them in the washing machine to loosen them post spin-cycle.
  • Wash towels again in hot water, this time adding one half cup of baking soda.
  • Dry towels according to care instructions, and enjoy the new fresh scent!

Note: Laundry detergent and/or liquid fabric softener is not recommended for either wash.
