Smelly Towel Washer Review & Giveaway!
Since I have started using more natural products for doing laundry, I have noticed that my clothes and towels are really stinky smelling....seriously, bad smelling, even after washing them. Not knowing what was causing the smell, I tried a number of different products, with nothing working. Then I found out about Smelly Washer. They also have produced a new product called Smelly Towel Cleaner. Thank you to Smelly Washer for sending my a complimentary bottle of Smelly Towel Cleaner for the purpose of review on my blog.
About Smelly Washer: (from the website)
Smelly Washer will make your stinky washing machine smell fresh again! Smelly Washer eliminates the embarrassment of moldy smelling clothes, towels, and linens - all while eliminating dangerous molds and allergens that are secretly breeding in your fabrics. Smelly Washer Cleaner is guaranteed to eliminate washing machine odor, fungus, and mildew from any top load or front load washing machine by simply adding 1 level cap (1 tbsp.) to the detergent dispenser or directly into the tub. Agitate in a hot setting and your washer will CLEAN ITSELF!
About Smelly Towel Cleaner:
Smelly Towels is made by Smelly washer and like Smelly Washer, Smelly Towel is an all natural powder.
Smelly Towel Cleaner is designed to remove odors from towels and laundry. The first thing I noticed was the fresh citrus scent.The difference between the products is..."Smelly Washer Cleaner is for an empty washer and Smelly Towel is for a washer with towels and clothing in it. In short, Smelly Towel Cleaner was made specifically for towels and clothing".
To use Smelly Towel, you just use it in place of your regular detergent and run the washing machine on the hot water cycle. For the more extreme cases, you can soak your laundry for up to two hours.
What Causes Washing Machine Odor and Towel Mildew Smell?
1. The main cause of front load or top load stink is overuse of detergents because the user is following directions for amount used (I only use "natural" detergents, so not sure if this would still be a problem)
2. Running a close second is fabric softener use (I don't use them - only dry balls in my house)
3. The third not-so-common reason for clothes washer smells is using mainly cold water for washing.
(I only use cold water to in order to live more "green")
4. Another cause of washing machine odor is non-use of the applianc (hello...being a family of four, with two children, ages 3 and 19 months, definitely not an issue LOL)
I love it! I have used Smelly Towel Cleaner about four times in the last week, and its been incredible the difference I have seen in my laundry smell. I am so glad that I have discovered this product and will be recommending it to all my family and friends. Now my washer is only 2 years old, so really should not have that smelly washer smell. I contribute the smell mostly to the fact that I only use cold water for doing laundry.
What I like the best about using Smelly Towel Cleaner is the fact that my husband does not complain that our laundry stinks anymore, even after it just comes out of the wash! I use natural cleaning methods, currently soap nuts, dryer balls and other natural products. He always complains because he figures clothes and linens need to "smell clean". What I have realized in the last few years is that there is so many chemicals in traditional laundry methods and I did not want to expose myself or my family to these chemicals. That's why I love the idea of Smelly Towel Cleaner. There are no dangerous chemicals!
I HIGHLY recommend this product!
