How to safely get the mold smell out of towels


You’re wanting to safely get the mold and mildew smell out of your towels or other clothing items.


Luckly, there is a very effective safe solution to this.  Vinegar.  White Vinegar is both cheap and safe (you can use it in salad dressingings).  It’s also a very effective cleaner especially when you need to kill mold and mildew.  Put the affected towels or clothing items into the washer and use a quarter gallon of vinegar soaked onto the clothing items (that may seem like a lot but it’s always worked well for me).  Now, run the washer once on warm or hot.  When done with the first run your clothes will likely smell a little like vinegar.  You’re going to run then a second time with your regular laundry detergent.  When this is done, throw them in the drier and they should be as good as new (at least smell wise).
