Why do my bath towels stink?
It’s not the towels, Gary, it’s you. “Skin flakes and body soil get left behind with every use,” says Mary Gagliardi, a.k.a. “Dr Laundry” for global cleaning brand Clorox. She advises washing a bath towel after seven uses. In between, spread it widely on a rack. Persistent funk? Could be buildup in your washer – run more regular bleach clean-out cycles.
