    Another pinner says: I washed my towels in 1 Cup of vinegar on hot, then again with 1/2 cup of baking soda on hot. I just pulled them out of the washer to move to the dryer and my towels smell 10 times better. Apparently I didn't realize how musty and gross my towels were smelling!

      Strip towels of detergent buildup and that icky musty smell they get after a while...make them smell brand new. Wash towels in hot water with one cup distilled white vinegar. Wash towels again in hot water with 1/2 cup baking soda. Run through dryer and towels smell better than ever! Works!!!
