I live in an old home with no laundry room. When we bought our house, my husband and I thought long and hard about where we would put our washer and dryer. We didn’t have any closets large enough to accommodate a washer and dryer and our basement floor was dirt, so the idea of doing laundry down there seemed a little impractical (especially when you consider how many things fall out of my arms as I move clothes from the washer to the dryer). After much deliberation, we decided to put a stackable washer and dryer in our master bathroom.
After having our washer for only a year, we noticed that our towels didn’t smell very fresh when they came out of the laundry. I’m extra sensitive about smells so this drove me absolutely crazy. If I used a towel that smelled slightly mildewy, the smell stayed with me all day long! YUCK!
I tried running bleach through the washing machine…it helped a little, but some of it must have stayed in the washing machine because I noticed a few of my black tee shirts had bleach spots on them a few loads later! Grrr! I googled various solutions and while they helped a little, none of them seemed to do the trick.
Enter Smelly Washer, a product designed to rid your washer of the nasty smell AND get rid of the smell in your towels. I have to admit, I was pretty desperate by the time I heard about Smelly Washer. I was willing to try just about anything, so when I was given the opportunity to try Smelly Washer, I figured it was worth trying. When the Smelly Washer arrived in the mail, it sat on the counter for a few weeks before I actually tried it. When I finally got around to using it, I didn’t have high hopes, but I couldn’t stand the thought of using one of those less-than-fresh smelling towels for even another day.
I added a capful of Smelly Washer to my stinky washing machine, ran the machine for 2 minutes with hot water, turned it off and let it soak over night and VOILA, the nasty smell went away. What’s even more impressive is that I was able to get the smell out of my towels by adding some Smelly Washer to the machine while washing my towels. This product is absolutely amazing! And it’s a whole lot cheaper than new towels!
Here’s all the info you’ve been waiting for!
