Use regular white vinegar in your rinse water, it really does work. (09/09/2006)

Yes, I agree that vinegar should work and besides putting in the rinse water, you could also just add some to the regular wash cycle. Also just hang them up and let them have a good airing out.

We forgot about wet towels and bathing suits in a plastic bag for a few days and they smelled bad with mildew. I hung up to air for a while before washing and the smell was gone just from letting them air out. (09/11/2006)

If not GROWING mildew, wash in larger load size with soap, and a rinse of 1/3 cup of Bleach, even if not white towels. It's about the only real way to kill the mildew causing the odors deep in the fibers .None of us is perfect, God knows, and you will learn from your mistakes.
God bless you. (09/11/2006)
