Another Use for Vinegar

Heinz Distilled White Vinegar 16oz
Today I found a towel on Trouble's playscape. I have no idea how long the towel was out there but it smelled like it had been out there since Halloween. Unfortunately Luckily I deal with a lot of stinky towels during the summer. Between the pool and lake, some towel always ends up being wadded up in a ball and left to ripen to a musty mess.
To de-stink towels or any laundry for that matter, try vinegar. It's not just for your pancakes!
Simply pour your normal laundry detergent in the wash.
 Then pour in 1/2 to 1 cup of vinegar.

Wash laundry as you normally do.

Also: Try adding a cup of vinegar into your washing machine and run it through a normal cycle without clothes.  This will freshen up the washing machine, clean the hoses, and unclog soap scum.

Check your laundry for stains and remove them first, as vinegar may set them.
Wash like colors together.

  1. Vinegar is especially helpful in a front loading machine since it uses little water.
