- Air dry rags, washcloths, or other damp items. Don't just throw them in your hamper or somewhere to mildew.
- Keep yucky stuff in a separate place to do a bleach load once a week or so. Throw in your shower curtain if it needs it (air dry!). Most wash cloths and towels will need a little bleach added to the load each time they are washed. You can find color-safe bleach if you have dark towels.
- For items you do not want to bleach (i.e. smelly work out clothes?), you can pre-soak with warm water and baking soda for a few hours before washing.
Anyone have other ideas for smelly laundry?
