Does this happen to anyone else??
I put my freshly washed, 100% cotton sheets into the linen closet. (Note: My detergent is not perfumed.) Maybe a week later, I go to get them out and they have a distinct smell. It's a stale odor. I once thought it might be because they weren't getting completely clean (like maybe the skin oil had turned rancid? I'm getting creative here...) So I washed them on HOT with Oxyclean and detergent. As usual, they smelled fresh when I put them away and stinky when I took them out of the closet. Oh! And this happens regardless of which house/apartment we're living in, so it's not the closet's fault!
My bath towels don't turn stinky in the linen closet. Why do the sheets?
