Sometimes it is inevitable to avoid our towels to get mildewy. So here are some cool and easy tips by Martha Stewart on how to freshen a mildewy towel:

Kill the fungus. “A sour-smelling towel is difficult but not impossible to remedy.” The problem is usually mildew, which is a fungus. To defeat the mildew, soak your towels in hot water, with a few tablespoons of all-fabric bleach per quart of water. If your towels are white, try using chlorine bleach instead, because its disinfecting properties are more powerful.

Add some sun. Did we mention you should undertake this task on a sunny day? Once you’ve laundered the towels in hot water and dried them “most of the way” in a tumble dryer set on high, you should hang them on a line in the sun. “The sun’s rays are natural disinfectants, and the fresh air will go a long way toward ensuring sweet-smelling towels.”

Don’t be stubborn. If a towel still smells after you’ve taken these steps, “it may simply be time to get rid of it.”

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
