NAILED IT! SIMPLE FIX FOR SMELLY TOWELS 1.Wash in HOT water with ONLY 1 Cup white vinegar. 2.Wash again in HOT water with ONLY 1 Cup baking soda. Dry as usual. **I was so sick and tired of fresh and lovely smelling clean towels turning sour IMMEDIATELY when you went to use them. This was a problem that happened suddenly and unexpectedly. Tried this method, but forgot and left 1 hand towel out of the load when I washed all my towels using this method, and you can tell which hand towel I missed!
