I will admit – I am a laundry geek. I have probably had more washers and dryers in my lifetime than most people. That is because every time a manufacture came out with a new machine I had to have it! And for years, I have told customers that complain about their towels not smelling as fresh to use vinegar in the wash cycle. Interesting enough, I never actually did it myself until recently. I had an amazing Whirlpool Front Load Washer but my towels didn’t smell very good. So I got a new washer and dryer. This time I was somewhat obsessed with GE’s new laundry and their Ultra Fresh Vent with Odor Block. However, my towels still didn’t smell good despite all the fabric softener I was using.
So I started using vinegar and WOW! Not only did they smell better but they were softer! They do not smell like vinegar at all. There are several other benefits of vinegar for your laundry:
- Clean clothes without harsh chemicals
- Loosen soap build up
- Remove Stains
- Soften fabrics
- Stop colors from fading
- Cleans your washing machine
- Whiten and brighten
- Vinegar is not expensive
- Gets rid of Limescale
Vinegar contains acetic acid that makes it a cleaning powerhouse. This natural household product will disinfect, deodorize and soften fabrics. Its the best thing for your washer as well. I have been very happy with the results with how clean my washer is and how nice my towels feel and smell!
In case you are wondering I have my eye on LG’s new washer tower as my next set!
