Do you ever leave WET Laundry in the washer?
I used to do that a LOT – I have been getting better at it. It happens more times than not during the day … I’ll toss stuff in and forget that I turned the buzzer off the night prior so it doesn’t wake up the kids or Dave.
BEFORE I started using Essential Oils I used to re-run the load, with MORE detergent – but, it never always worked to take out the stink in the clothes. My mother in law would show up (randomly, never called first, which I love but hate.. ha! I was always paranoid she’d come over at that moment and it was always the case)…
She would say “You left the clothes in again.” I never knew what to say, except get a little embarrassed. (VERY embarrassing.. )
But now.. it’s a little different. It’s not that I don’t care if I forget, I don’t worry quite as bad – I keep a jar of Purification in the laundry room and use it to freshen my clothes.
Leave the clothes in the wash, and just run a rinse cycle with 2-3 drops of Purification to reverse the “Forgotten in the Washer” mildew smell.
