    Awesome!! One of my biggest pet peeves- stinky towels! 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.

Get rid of stinky, mildew towels. I love this recipe! My towels are so soft and clean smelling! So glad I found this, I was just about to throw out all of my towels and buy new because no matter how many times I washed them, they still stunk! I gave this a try and 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

Get fluffy towels again. 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. Towels smell fresh and feel new!

To get rid of the musty smell on old towels, wash using 1 cup of white vinegar on a hot cycle, then repeat with 1/2 cup of bicarbonate of soda.
