Getting Rid of Towel Odor Tips

Eventually, you will run across a time, where your towels may not seem up to par.  A time, where your towels may take upon some odor.  This is normal from time to time and there is a way to get those musty, stinky odors out of your towels, especially if you have a favorite towel or baby towel that you definitely do not want odors lingering.

Recently, I posted about the cute and adorable Grayson and Rose Cute Hooded Baby Towel. Now, I have a few tips, on how to keep your adorable towel smelling fresh, like new.  Below, you will find some easy and inexpensive steps in eliminating these odors.

How To Get Rid Of Odors:
     * Add a 1/2 cup of baking soda to your regular laundry detergent.  It also
        helps with increasing absorbency, brightening colors, whitening whites, 
        softening and fluffing towels.

     * Towels with stubborn musty odors: Wash with 1-2 cups of white vinegar, 
        but NO soap.  Then run the wash cycle again, this time, using soap and
        1/2 cup white vinegar in place of fabric softener. Dry promptly after the 
        second wash.

     * To avoid musty odors in the first place, avoid over loading the washing
        machine.  Move towels to the dryer, promptly, at the end of each wash
        cycle. As a reminder: set a timer on the washing machine, to remind you
        to place in the dryer.

These tips also work with pet, smoke and funky odors that have made a home in your towels.  

Do you have any special tips on getting odors out of your towels?  I'd love to hear about them!
