Throughout the monsoon season doing the laundry can be even more of a chore than usual. With the combination of torrential rain and humid temperatures, it’s hard to keep dry, and as a result: almost impossible to keep clothes clean and fresh. By the end of each day, it’s likely that your clothes will end up damp, dirty, and with that unmistakable smell that only comes from wet clothes.
So how can you keep clothes fresh during the monsoon? From tips on fresh smelling laundry detergent, to advice on how to remove smells from clothes – here are a few to survive the wet weather!
How to Remove Odour from Clothes after Getting Caught in the Rain
If you get caught in a downpour, chances are you’ll be left wearing damp clothes until they naturally dry. The problem here is that as soon as clothes get damp, your body heat will cause any bacteria present in the fabric to multiply, leading to dank and dingy smells. In order to prevent this, try to keep a change of clothes with you, so that you can at least remove the wet ones and stop stuffy smells from bothering you throughout the day.
