How to get rid of mold and musty smell from towels during washing: two remedies will help

Washing towels

Towels often take longer to dry due to room humidity or repeated use, which can result in an unpleasant musty odor, even if you washed the towels just a few days ago. This odor can be a sign of mold development on the fabric, as moisture provides an ideal environment for fungus to thrive. OBOZREVATEL has found an effective way to quickly deal with this issue.

Mold and unpleasant odors can be easily eliminated by using natural ingredients.

Vinegar, a natural deodorizer and disinfectant, is perfect for combating the stench while baking soda helps remove dirt and stubborn stains.

To resolve this issue, add a cup of white vinegar and baking soda to the detergent dispenser or drum of your washing machine, and then run a normal wash cycle.

Towels should be washed separately from other laundry and clothes to prevent germs from spreading to your garments.

Once the wash cycle has finished, add another half cup of baking soda to the drum and run another cycle. This time, you can add a fabric softener for delicate fabrics.

After the second cycle, hang the towels outdoors or in a well-ventilated room if possible. Proper drying will help prevent the unpleasant musty odor caused by moisture.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL shared the perfect product that can make towels fluffy and soft after washing.
