    wash only the towels in a small load in hot water to which you have added a half cup or more of vinegar.....add vinegar again in the rinse.....dry them without softeners....

      Thank you, I always wash it separately with blue Dawn and white vinegar and dry it in the sun.

    Try soaking them in a mixture of water with peroxide and baking soda before you wash them. You should also check you washing machine to make sure the smell is not from a dirty washing machine. The peroxide and baking soda worked for my daughter-in-law after her boys got the stomach bug and threw up all over their bedding.

    Is the smell coming from your washer? Buy a washing machine cleaner.

    hi Vee, what do you do that make the towels?One way I do is use white vinegar in the wash and I hang them out side to dry. I also hang kitchen towels when wet on back of washroom door to dry until I do the wash. Hope this helps you. Jackie
