Are smelly stains making you wrinkle your nose every time you lay down on your pillowcase or wipe your mouth with your napkin? Did you forget a load of laundry in the washing machine and now it smells like mildew? Or did the dog lay on your favorite blanket and all you smell is wet dog even after its been washed? Well, take a trick out of grandma’s playbook and break out the vinegar – Mix ½ cup of white vinegar with the detergent and water then add the items into the machine. Vinegar helps erase the smell and can prevent color bleeding at the same time.
