Summertime means wet towels. Whether it is days spent at the beach or at the pool, having that dank, mildew smell left behind on them is almost inevitable. Instead of just pretending you don't smell anything, make them like new again with some vinegar! All you have to do is run the towels in the washing machine on the hottest temperature with 1 or 2 cups of white vinegar. Once that load is done, rerun the towels through a normal wash with just your laundry detergent. Then either thoroughly dry them in the dyer or outside in the sun.
