Use Tomato Juice to Remove Mildew Smells

Removing mildew smell from towels: Even, large, dark colored ones that can't be bleached. Soak the towels in 50% diluted tomato juice for two or three hours, run the wash cycle to be sure the towels are completely saturated, then rinse two or three times in cold water. Dry thoroughly. No more smell, even when wet.

It's the acid in the juice that takes away the smell. Here's a cheaper method, vinegar will do the same thing and you can do it on any color whether light or dark and it won't stain.
