Foto: One of my fav tricks! Expecting guests and house smelling a little funky? Put a cap full of vanilla extract in 1/4 cup of water, then place it in the microwave for 2 mins. The whole house will smell like heaven~! ♡
Over time, and with many washes, your bath towels will build up detergent and fabric softener residue, leaving them both unable to absorb as much water and smelling kinda funky when they do. Run them through the wash once with hot water and a cup of vinegar, then again with hot water and a half-cup of baking soda. That strips the residue from them, leaves them smelling fairly fresh again.
