Want a few more tips on how to keep your clothes smelling clean and fresh? We found some useful tricks on Downy's website. Check out a few of our favorites here and get even more tips on downy.com:
+ Don't let your dirty or damp clothes sit! Bacteria can multiply and cause a major odor meltdown. Wash or pre-treat dirty clothes immediately. Or, spread out sweaty or damp clothes and let them air dry before tossing them in the hamper to wash later.
+ Dry your clothes immediately. Wet clothes quickly mildew and become smelly all over again.
+ Clean your washing machine! Even your laundry appliances need freshening every now and then. Once per month, Downy recommends cleaning a top-loader washer by running a hot-water cycle until the drum is full, adding four cups of vinegar, and letting the mixture sit for an hour. The, finish the cycle. Or simply use Tide® Washing Machine Cleaner once a month.
Now it's time to get fresh!
