    We use OdorKlenz Laundry at our house too. My wife doesn’t appreciate the smell that lingers after I am finished doing yard work or working in my woodworking shop. This is the best product we’ve found to take care of such a variety of odors.

    As I mentioned to Rina above, the best product I've used for removing stench from laundry is OdorKlenz…. here's a link to a site you can order it from!

    Sadly our most frequent laundry problem (one we are trying to solve) is the "oh someone started, but never finished the laundry and it's been sitting wet in the washer" situation. We use vinegar then, but I'd love to hear other solutions.

      Oh I know that problem all too well. That's how we treat it, too. As far as remembering to continue the cycle? Have you tried using a timer or setting a reminder on your phone.

      Seriously? You really need to try OdorKlenz Laundry Additive. That was the initial reason I used it, but have since found that it's great on a variety of laundry odors, including funky wash clothes & towels, as well as sweat & perspiration. I'm surprised, really, that it's not been mentioned. It's a fantastic product. I've made all of my sisters & my brother try it and they are all now fans too!

      I've used the OdorKlenz too – and it works better than vinegar. My quite elderly father-in-law lives with us and his clothes get a quirky smell to them (he says it's just an 'old-people' smell) but OdorKlenz takes it right out. It works on all sorts of odors!
