How many times have you started a load of laundry, gotten side-tracked, and forgotten about the wet clothes until they are all stinky? In our home, Matt often "helps" by starting a load without telling me. I discover the icky-smelling clothes a few days later. Until recently, I thought I had no choice but to waste another load-worth of water, electricty, and detergent (and I usually put in extra detergent to make sure the mildew smell is gone!).
GreenStyleMom Tip - Add a few tablespoons of white vinegar to the washer and run on a quick rinse cycle. Your clothes will be clean, the smell will be gone, and you will have conserved resources!
