Smelly Washer Cleaner Review: Took 5 Treatments But Got Rid Of The Moldy Smell
Traci shared her Smelly Washer cleaner review, for cleaning and removing smells from her washing machine. She also compares her experiences with this product and Affresh washer cleaner.
I purchased this washing machine cleaner about 3 years ago, soon after we moved to a new apartment. My son was complaining about the towels smelling moldy.
No matter what I tried I couldn’t get rid of the smell. I tried everything I could think of but nothing worked. I couldn’t understand why the smell was there. It is not like I was leaving them sitting in stagnant water for days on end.
Then, I ran across a website selling a product called "Smelly Washer" and it made me remember when my friend had mentioned she has used this product before to solve the smell in her front loader. I asked her and she thought it would work on top loaders as well so I gave it a try.
The product was costly from the website I got it at originally, but I've since learned that Amazon has a much better price for it.
The first time I used it I didn’t notice any change in the mold. It took about 5 cycles with the product to get rid of the smell.
I have also tried Affresh washer cleaner too, but I didn’t like the tablet approach and it seemed to leave a grainy residue whereas the Smelly Washer did not. Plus I liked the scent more with this product than with Affresh.
I now use this washing machine cleaner religiously every month to make sure the mold smell doesn’t return. Until I got the smell under control though I used it about once a week.
The best part of this product is that I now don't have to throw away anymore dishtowels or bath towels. I was spending so much money buying towels just to avoid having to smell the stench.
Now I just have to purchase this product and it saves me tons of money plus the embarrassment of having smelly moldy towels.
Thanks Traci for your review of this product.
I read a bit more about it on Amazon once you sent in this review and when I looked it had 80 reviews, with an average rating of 4 stars. That's not too bad. I would love to hear from even more people who have used it to share how it worked for you, good or bad. You can share your reviews here for this or any other washing machine cleaner to tell me what you liked, or didn't about it and why.
Now I no longer have problems with odor unless my husband forgets to put his load in the dryer.
It also works great on musty smelling towels and stinky clothes.
Some of my husbands shirts had developed a horrible odor when wet that was transferring to other clothes in the washer.
I tried everything -- borax, soaking in vinegar, air drying in the sun, Febreeze sport -- and nothing made a dent.
I finally decided to try the Smelly Washer and it worked like a charm in one 2 hour soak session.
It may seem a bit expensive, but you only use a capful at a time and one bottle is worth about 24 cleaning cycles.
I've had mine for at least a couple years, so it's really cost effective.
Thanks for this review Jennifer.
