How to Get Rid of Musty Smells in Towels?

start exploring

You expect your towel to look nice, feel great, and smell great when you use it. You may, however, discover that your towels occasionally have a smell that is less than desirable.

As a result of being hanging up or jammed in a laundry hamper while still wet or damp, the funky scent may appear when the towels are unable to dry correctly.

Why mushy smell?

Using towels that have become musty is a bad idea, so if you discover this has happened, act quickly.

What to do?

To begin, you can try washing them in a (fresh, mildew-free) washing machine with hotter than usual water.

Use Vinegar

If that doesn't work, or if you just want to be extra sure that any lingering odor is gone, you can use a cup of vinegar in the washing machine with your towels.

Wash them again!

You may smell the vinegar afterwards. So, wash and dry the towels again normally. A scented fabric softener helps eradicate odors and freshen towels.

How often to wash?

According to Modern Bathroom, you may get away with washing them after three or four uses. That is, if you allow them to dry completely between applications.
