My friend is having a problem with her laundry smelling musty even though she says does not let the laundry sit in the washer after it is done with the cycle. I had this problem a long time ago, but I cannot remember how I solved it, with the exception of I never let laundry sit in the washer when it is done with the cycled.
She does seem to use a lot of fabric softener. In an attempt to get rid of the musty smell, she uses softener in her washer as well as a fabric sheet in the dryer. This does not help get rid of the musty smell at all. Could this be causing a problem?
I have a vague memory of using vinegar in my wash load. Would this help with the musty smells? I know it helps to neutralize bleach loads.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you D~
