Have you ever left your clean clothes in the washer too long and they get that mildew smell? You don’t always have to rewash the entire load.(Great news if you’re in a rush.) I find that if I pour about 1/3 cup of white distilled vinegar into a rag and put it in the dryer with the clothes it will remove the smell completely. Vinegar is a great natural deodorizer. *Please note that if you’ve left the clothes in the washer so long that the smell about knocks you off your feet you will definitely have to rewash them.
