Transforming Towels from Musty to Fresh and Clean

The relentless humidity and daily rain has left our towels less than fresh. The solution is simple, effective and totally chemical free! Place musty, like color towels into the laundry machine. I usually put linens and fabric shower curtains in too to freshen them up at the same time and make the load as full as possible. Pour in 1 cup of distilled white vinegar (the cheap stuff). Launder a full cycle with hot water. Add detergent and launder as usual on a second cycle. Though I am a proponent of air drying to save energy and money for this (and it is still raining!) I recommend using the dryer to thoroughly dry the towels and linens.
