Smelly Towel Cleaner Review & Giveaway

 Looking for a way to remove mold and mildew odor and naturally refesh your towels without using fabric softener? Here’s a solution for you!
I recently had the opportunity to try out some Smelly Towel Cleaner.  At our house we have the really big, thick towels, and if they set wet for any length of time before or after washing, they are left a with a musty smell, so I was really happy to discover this product!
I was very impressed by the amount of cleaner that is needed for each load of towels.  For a large load, you only need a cap full or one tablespoon of cleaner. That’s all!  In fact, when I received the cleaner, I had at first thought that this was something to put in place of fabric softener, along with regular detergent, and I was very surprised when the bottle instructed me to use the Smelly Towel Cleaner alone. 
And it worked!  So far I’ve used the Smelly Towel Cleaner for 3 loads, and each and every towel has come out smelling clean and fresh. 
My true way to really test this product was to use it without telling my husband. (He’s the one that always seems to find the smelly towels!)  As I said, I’ve used the Smelly Towel Cleaner on three loads, and finally today I nonchalantly said, “Well, the Smelly Towel Cleaner seems to work well.”  His response: “Yeah. I haven’t found any smelly towels in a while.  If I had, you know I would have complained about it.  So it must work!” (That’s a ringing endorsement for sure!)
Each 12 oz. bottle holds enough cleaner for 24 treatments, and it sells for $16.99.  This is a little pricey compared to other detergents, but when you consider that you’re only going to use the product for towels, it’s not such a bad price.   It’s also not that bad of a deal when I consider that I wash towels about once a week, so for us one bottle is a 6 month supply of the cleaner. 
All in all, I’d say this is a great product.  I love the idea of only using a tablespoon of cleaner for a load of laundry.  And I think it’s natural formula is perfect for those of you with allergies.  And most of all, it worked very well, leaving the towels smelling fresh.

    I learned that one of the biggest causes of a smelly washer is overuse of detergents.

  18. I learned that the smell is being transferred from the washing machine to the clothes/towels so you have to clean your machine first!

  19. I didn't realize you have to clean the washing machine before you can try to get rid of the towel smelliness!
