Do your clothes smell musty? Check out these amazing hacks to remove the mildew smell from your clothes!

Often times, our clothes smell bad. This could be due to dampness, body odour or mildew build-up.

With the help of these smart hacks, you can get rid of the musty smell from your clothes.

  • Use vinegar to remove the musty smell
    Add 5 tablespoons of vinegar to your regular wash cycle. Vinegar strips away the product build-up that traps odour into your clothes.
  • Use a mixture of vinegar and baking soda
    Both kill mould and mildew. In case vinegar doesn’t do that trick for you, add 120 ml of baking soda into the wash and run the cycle with warm water.
  • Use oxygen bleach or borax
    A regular detergent may not be able to kill mildew. In case you have to use a stronger detergent, then opt for one containing oxygen bleach. Alternatively, you can dissolve borax in warm water and add it to the wash cycle.
  • Use enzyme mould remover for sweaty clothes
    While 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 as they eliminate the odour effectively.
