  • How do you remove mildew from clothing?

    Ok so I left a small pile of fresh out of the washer wet laundry on my hamper and promptly forgot about it for 3 days. Now the clothes that were in that pile have a faint mildew smell. I don't see any mildew that has grown on them but they still have that kitchen sink sponge smell.
    How should I try to remove/kill that?
    Unfortunately it was a color/black load that this happened to, so the obvious bleach is not really an option.

    Is there some home remedy?
    Lemon Juice?

    Thanks for your help!!!
    Is this haunted signature

    Or is it your imagination, hmm?

      I would recommend first re-washing the clothes in the washer with about a cup of vinegar. Run it through the rinse cycle twice. Then use a mixture of Oxyclean and Tide for the next wash. If the smell is still there, repeat the above steps.

      Hope this helps.

          Re-washing them usually does the trick. Can you get some color-safe bleach or Woolite Dark?
