Mildew Smell on Towels

My friend's towels smell like mildew. She washed them many times and can't get the smell out. Any ideas?

Mildew Smell on Towels

She could try adding vinegar and baking soda to the final rinse -- it's worth a try. I've had trouble with large towels getting a musty smell too. Now I use thinner, smaller towels, which are cheaper to buy, easier to clean and take less time in the dryer, which will also save money in energy usage! (10/20/2006)
