Removing Odors from Linens

I would like to know how to get rid of body oil smell from linens. It is not mold, but body oils.

50/50 rinse solution of water & vinegar (clear) then a 100% cold water rinse. Any vinegar smell will be short lived (30 minutes). Plus this also helps to 'set the color' in your linens.

Add about a half of baking soda. Use the hottest temperature and let it soak at least an hour, maybe overnight. Color safe bleach might help to, but I know baking soda will help.

Not sure if your reference to 'Linens' meant actual Linen cloth, or meant 'bed linens, etc. If 'bed linens', add 1 or 2 cups of clear Vinegar to the Rinse cycle of your wash..this will remove all soap perfumes and residue from the washing process. Your clothes will be squeaky clean. Plus, it will reduce the soapy buildup in the drain line.
