Part of being a mom is taking care of the house and laundry. So every once and a while I’ll throw a house keeping tip in my parenting tip section. I think we’ve all had towels that get that mildew, musty smell – especially with kids when you find towels in piles. I have found the best solution to get the musty smell out of towels. The first step is to put 1-2 cups vinegar in with your towels. Wash it on the hottest setting. Don’t dry it. You’re not done yet. Add 1/2 cup Borax to your regular detergent. Wash again on the hottest setting. Finally, dry your towels on the hottest setting. I don’t generally use Fabric Softener Sheets because I’m not convinced they are the healthiest option for us because of the potential risks of the chemicals found in softener sheets. We generally try and do a more natural laundry detergent too even though I bought a different detergent this month. I want to go back to a more natural solution even though my husband likes the smell of the other stuff.
