This Ingredient Might Be The Key To Getting Rid Of Funky Smells In Your Laundry
While there is seemingly no downside to using OdoBan, the one caveat to the product is that it needs to be used correctly. Luckily, the brand took to TikTok to explain exactly what to do and the steps are quite easy. After loading your washer with your smelly clothes and laundry, add one cup of disinfectant to the fabric softener section of your washing machine. Add your detergent as you normally would and simply run your wash. Pay attention to it, though, because they recommend immediately transferring your clothes to the dryer as it finishes and not letting it sit.
If your machine does not have separate dispensers for detergent, simply add the OdoBan to the final rinse cycle instead. Just avoid mixing it with your detergent, because, as one TikTok commenter said, this can cause the product to cut and not work as described. The disinfectant comes in a few different scents, like lavender and citrus. OdoBan recommends their fresh linen scent when used for laundry, but no matter what scent you choose, you can pretty much guarantee fresher-smelling clothes from now on.
