Wash your towels in hot water with a cup of vinegar, and then run again in hot water with a half-cup of baking soda. That will strip your towels from all of that residue and mildew smell and will actually leave them feeling fluffy and smelling fresh. ***Do not add laundry detergent to either wash. Just once with vinegar and once with baking soda. *** This trick also works well with wet bathing suits that were left to dry.

Wash your load of towels on the hot cycle and add 1 cup of vinegar… just hot water and the vinegar, nothing else. Let the washer do it’s job. Then, if you still smell a little bit, rewash with just hot water and 1/2 cup of baking soda. Again, no detergent, just baking soda and hot water. Voila!
For every time burns our pots. Clean burnt pots - vinegar, baking soda, and water :) I had been soaking a pan for 2 days, scrubbing like crazy several times. Brought the water n vinegar to a boil, added baking soda. Waited a couple mins, dumped it all out n everything just wiped off! I had a brand new looking pan! I will be remembering this one lol
Going to try this... Strip towels of detergent buildup and 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!
My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!
Refresh Old Towels: Start with a washer full of old towels. wash with hot water and one cup vinegar, once the cycle is done, wash again with hot water and half cup of baking soda! Then, stick in the dryer and be ready to enjoy fluffy and fresh towels!
