Posts: 272 big mistake got us the stinkies

I am SOOOO bummed.

I have NEVER had one single little stink. I use lots of pockets, hemp and microfiber. Well last week I left them in the washing machine overnight on a really hot day and they all got this kind of funky smell

I have a front loading washer that has a 'sanitary cycle' and I put them through three times yesterday. Once, just the normal way (a little bit of Allen's and vinegar in the rinse), once with some RLR and a touch of Allens and then once with a few drops of Dawn.

They LOOK amazingly clean and I thought the smell was gone but I just put a FB on DS and it had that funky smell

Any thoughts?

Using a couple of shakes (maybe 1/2 cup) of baking soda in the presoak helps us get rid of the stinkies. Sorry you are dealing with this!
