What can I try?
DH's shirts and undershirts get horrendous. What I have discovered is to do the following: Put the shirts into the washing machine with a full dose of laundry soap and about a cup of white vinegar (even if the cycle is on small or medium load). Run the load through the soak cycle at the maximum soak time on warm water. After it is done, I run it through a permanent press cycle on cold or warm (whichever I prefer at the time) without adding anything. If I leave out the vinegar, the soak cycle, any
part of this the smell doesn't come out.
