Storing Summer Clothes

10/28/2020 (Permalink)

Do you store your cool weather clothes away during summer? If so, this can help!

Clothes with a musty smell can usually be taken care of by using one of these common household products.

  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • Borax

Just fill your washing machine with clothes, hot water, and your normal detergent. Once full, pour a cup of your selected product in and agitate to ensure its mixed properly. You can use a mixture of vinegar and baking soda, a half cup each.

For best results dry the clothes outside. A sunny breezy day is best. A place that gets both wind and sun is ideal.

Keep in mind if your clothes smell musty it is because of mold. You might want to investigate that.
