Doing the laundry isn’t everyone’s favourite chore, but the upside is that you do end up with fresh smelling sheets and clothes. At least, that’s the idea. When you open the washing machine, you’re expecting a fresh, clean smell, but the smell that greets you instead is anything but those things. Instead of your laundry smelling like flowers and soap, it has a sour, musty smell about it. Luckily, this problem is easily solved with this product!
It might sound strange, but this product will indeed fix your musty laundry problem.
From musty to fresh
Professor Steve Anderton from the University of Edinburgh was fed up with musty laundry and investigated a couple of products he thought could freshen up your clothes. Three of these products were a huge success. Anderton shared them with the rest of the world so now we can all benefit from his research.
Has your favourite dark jeans faded a bit because you washed them a little too often?

It might sound strange at first, but it’s actually pretty logical when you think about it: the alcohol in vodka has an antibacterial quality. That means it should be able to remove all of the nasty smells as well as the bacteria from your clothes. Plus, vodka doesn’t have a specific smell (like other types of alcohol) and it won’t leave any stains in your clothes. It is important to be a little careful with vodka, though. Don’t use it in combination with fragile materials like satin because the alcohol might affect the colour.
It’s terribly annoying: you’re busy writing something using a pen and then suddenly you’ve got a big ink stain on your new shirt. Ink stains are very stubborn and hard to get out.
