Eco-Friendly Smelly Washer Review and Giveaway!

Nothing is worse than coming out of the shower, grabbing your neatly folded towel and as you're going to dry off your face you get that whiff of mildew left over from a stagnant washer. Our washing machine is about 4 years old, but we live in Florida. If we do a ton of laundry and accidentally forget to put the clothes in the dryer, there is no doubt about having to re-wash that laundry. The smell may even linger on those clothes or towels, after rewashing the load.

My son and I are terribly allergic to mold and mildew and as you can imagine, the smell makes us nauseas and irritable. It lingers in our noses and drives us completely batty! Honestly, we have to find the source of "the smell" and get rid of it as soon as it's located. We received our bottle of Smelly Washer to review about a month ago, and since we cleaned our washer (and any loads of unfortunate mishap), we have not had a single problem with smelly washer funk!

We even went to our neighbor's house and tried it on her washer. She's had the same washer for about 10 years now, and was complaining of horrible smells on her laundry and towels. We decided to treat her washer twice, and since we did, her clothes come out of the laundry smelling fresh and clean- with no more hints of mildew!

After checking out the Smelly Washer Blog, I found that you could also use Smelly Washer to clean your dishwasher to remove any excess detergent (or tomato sauce!) film from plastic and stainless steel dishwashers. They also discuss different causes of washer funk, and tips to decrease the build up of detergent film for bacteria to stick to. Smelly Washer has been featured on several news broadcasts, and you can watch the testimonials right online.

Smelly Washer is an ALL NATURAL, citrus based solution to removing washing machine odor, guaranteed! The container itself has enough for 24 treatments and should last a full year. You can use Smelly Washer in both top or front loader washing machines and on your dishwasher!

Want It?
Smelly Washer is available for only $16.99 online at SmellyWasher.com! If you order from now until August 31st, you can use the coupon code: 4BabyAndMom to save 10% from your order!

This was interesting! After you’re done doing laundry, don’t be so quick to slam the door or lid. Leave them ajar for a few hours to allow any excess water to evaporate. I will start doing that. Thank you!

I left a comment under How To Clean A Washing Machine That Stinks, but when I clicked submit, I got the following Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Arggggggg..so I hit back button and my comment was still there so instead of hitting submit again, I just got the link so you could see my comment..hope thats good enough for me to enter..below is the link
http://smellywasher.com/blog/how-to-clean-your-appliances/how-to-clean-a-washing-machine-that-stinks/but its not showing my comment. My only other alternative is to copy & paste my comment for you to see.
Thanks for the great common sense tips. Never would have thought to clean under the agitator or drain pump filter but now that I'm aware, I will put that on my "to do" list and get right on it. I just tried clicking submit once again and now this came up: Duplicate comment detected; it looks as though you've already said that!
Oh brother..I give up LOL
