    Default My washing never smells nice :(

    Dp keeps telling me how my mothers washing always smells so nice (she will wash ds clothes when he stays there) so im on a mission to make my washing smell good. But no matter how much fabric softener I put in it , it never smells good. What is the trick? What do you use and how?

    assuming you are already using the same washing powder and fabric softener?

    does she line dry or clothes dry?

    Earth laundry liquid smells lovely. Like clean linen. Always hung out to dry in the sun

    Cold Power + sun dried clothes is awesome smelling.

    I also like the Twilight Sensation (I think that's what it's called?) and sun dried.

    Clothes dried in the dryer always or inside always smell bleh compared to sun dried clothes IMO.

    Sun dried, earths choice liquid and fluffy jasmine fabric softener... And make sure they're hung out as soon as the wash as finishes, don't let them sit in the machine or basket at all.

    Also doing a vinegar wash through an empty load may help as your machine may need washing..
