With the help of these hacks, you can get rid of the fungus and mould growth from your clothes and retain their freshness.
Step 1: Use vinegar to remove the musty smell
During your regular wash cycle, add 5 tablespoons of vinegar. Vinegar strips away the trapped odour from your clothes.
Step 2: Use a mixture of vinegar and baking soda
Both kill mould and mildew. If you’ve already tried vinegar and your clothes still smell, add ½ a cup (120 mL) of baking soda into the wash and run the cycle with warm water.
Step 3: Use oxygen bleach or borax
A regular detergent may not be able to kill mildew. Opt for stronger detergents that contain oxygen bleach, or mix borax in warm water and add it to the wash.
Step 4: Use enzyme mould remover for sweaty clothes
When you leave your damp workout clothes in your bag, body odour and mildew make it difficult for a regular detergent to remove the smell. Choose a product that has enzymes because they eliminate the odour effectively.
