Freshening Laundry

March 14, 2011

A stack of clean clothes.A new tip for freshening your smelliest laundry problems is to add a couple "capfuls" of regular mouthwash to your load of laundry! Brands such as Scope or dollar store brands work best - not Listerine which is too harsh. This should work on leftover smells of urine and such that can be really hard to remove.


I just heard about this and thought I'd share. Hope it helps!

When a load of wet laundry got left in the dryer for a week the smell was horrendous. I soaked the whole load in the washer overnight with a cup of vinegar in the water, then drained it and rewashed with laundry soap. As good as new! By Linda

Is Odorban a good product for eliminating smelly odors from clothing, linens, towels, etc.? If so, how much do I use?

I think it is, I raise dogs and use it on furniture and multiple things. You mix half and half...half Odorban and half water. You can use it on clothes, furniture, beds, floors, ect.
