Washing Clothes in Well Water

I have well water and every time I wash clothes, especially towels, they smell musty after a couple of days. What can I do?

Washing With Well Water

Our well water is just too cold to wash clothes clean in the winter, so I use warm water to fill while I am putting in soap, bleach, etc., then select cold water when I am ready to leave the laundry room. I get clean clothes and the benefit of using lower temperature water.

SA-8 laundry detergent, made by Amway, it even dissolves in ice water, plus it comes with a money-back guarantee. It's an excellent product, and concentrated. There's a website,, where you can get in touch with an independent business owner. (08/22/2005)

White vinegar helps too. It seems to get rid of the smell and keeps your clothing smelling better for longer.


I add about a 1/4 of a cup along with my laundry soap.
