  5. and generally it is a an easy task to get every item in your laundry smelling wonderful
  6. …with one bothersome exception.
  7. Towels, washcloths and dishcloths! No matter how many times we clean them, they seem to cling onto that stale-come-sour odour.
  8. Heloise from http://www.goodhousekeeping.com has provided us with the solution to this odious irritation.
  9. She says:
  10. “That smell is caused by a build-up of body oils and soap, which may not be completely removed if you launder your washcloths in cold or warm water.  Rinse twice, and dry on low to medium heat.
  11. To eliminate the odor, wash them in the hottest water possible for the fabric with 1 or 2 cups (depending on the size of your washer) of sudsy ammonia which acts as a grease and oil cutter — no detergent needed.
  12.  Rinse twice, and dry on low to medium heat.”
  13. Thanks for the help Heloise
