Why Your Clean Clothes Stink

(and what you can do about it.)

Maybe it’s you, or maybe it’s the water.

Too long in the washer. Wrong detergent. Wrong water temperature. 

Sometimes clothes smell sour when they’re fresh from the laundry. We’ve provided a few solutions in our handy Stinky Laundry Troubleshooting List printable.

You could do everything right and still have problems. 

Contaminants, minerals, and acidity levels are a few variables that can make laundry a challenge, but the right water treatment will take away the guesswork.

Schedule a water analysis to learn more about your water.

What you find out might surprise you. We can help, even if you have city water.
