Smelly Washer Review and Giveaway! {CLOSED}

The winner is Monica from First-time-mommy.com Many, many congratulations!

Did you know that many of the products and techniques we use to make our lives and laundry cleaner can also be making our washing machines dirtier and stinkier? Really?  You didn’t know that?  Neither did I.  I had no clue. Not until I was contacted by a company called Smelly Washer.com about reviewing their product.  Its main purpose, as hinted by the product name, is to help combat that issue that many of us have always taken for granted and called “normal”.  That odd smell that tends to radiate from your washing machine even after doing a fresh load of laundry.  As a shorter person, or vertically challenged as I like to say, I have up close and personal knowledge of this not too great scent every time I literally dive into my washer to retrieve the items at the bottom.  It’s the unmistakable odor of mildew.

OK, so now you’re wondering how in the world you’re washing machine, which is used to make clean laundry theoretically, could be dirty enough to stink? Let me tell you why… using detergents and fabric softeners are the number one reason.  Believe it! They can leave a residue in your washer that can cause mildew and then that lovely mildew odor.  Being environmentally friendly by using cold water is also a culprit because hot water is better at dissolving that residue.  And lets not forget about forgetting about that load of laundry that gets forgotten about and left in the washer for days. Been there done that a few too many times. And of course, my favorite of all mildew causers, because this means I was on vacation, is lack of use. (Ever come home from a vacations and go to start doing all that vacation laundry and notice your washer smells like your dirty clothes bag you’ve been hauling around in your luggage?)

After checking out a couple of the details on Smelly Washer and learning things like:

  • It’s all natural with no dyes and fragrances (i.e.. not covering up the scent but actually making it disappear)
  • That I could remove that mildew smell from the forgotten towels and clothes that I’m really good at causing… because I forgot them.
  • There is 24 treatments in each bottle. Not just 3 like some of their competitors.

That’s when I gleefully said YES! I’d love to give it a try!  About a week later I got my package in the mail and got started… On forgetting a load of towels if you can believe it. Perfect timing right?  So Smelly Washer was going to get a workout on this review.  From reading the easy instructions I learned that it would be better if I cleaned my washer first before trying the load of towels.  Alright, I can do that.  The first thing I noticed, sadly, was how messy the measuring process was.  One cap-full is the dose to a cleaner washer.  The cap to the bottle is a little small and was hard to measure into without dribbling extra product into the washer, but that small issue aside I can absolutely say I love this product!  Next I noticed that there was a surprising lack of fu fu smell from the bottle (again, not covering up the scent but attacking it).  After soaking my washer over night I opened it in the morning to find this funky gray looking water, and after finishing the wash process I was happy to find…. Nothing.  No smell, no dinginess… nothing.  My washer was clean!

Then I proceeded to my load of towels.  I again followed the easy directions and found my towels came out significantly cleaner smelling.  I did repeat the process on the towels (because they were really bad to begin with and they needed some extra loving) and out popped clean, non-mildewy towels.

Smelly Washer… I love you!
