    Default Failing as an adult: Things I never learnt how to do.

    Genuine question- why does my clean linen always smell funky after being in the cupboard for awhile? What trick and I missing here? Unless I put it straight on the bed from the washing line it always has a bit of a funny smell. Every house I have lived in has had the same problem, so it's my issue, not just a stinky cupboard.

    What things have you not learnt? Make me feel a bit less pathetic

    Hmm. I dont know the answer to that one. Lack of ventilation in the cupboard? Combined with dust/musk/ ageing washing powder scent trapped in the fabric?

    Ha ha I can make you feel MUCH less pathetic:

    Putting the sheet on the bed.

    Washing up without getting a weird little thumb cramp thing.

    All of the hair and makeup things.

    Ironing - unless the purpose is to add bonus creases in the clothes.

    Cutting bread.

    Cutting cheese.

    Keeping plants alive.

    Making plunger coffee.

    Using a screwdriver.

    I'll be back...

    Maybe. Is this a thing that happens to other people though?
    I'm totally going to have to ask my mum. *sigh*

    yes it happens to me too. I think it's just lack of ventilation. even in a 2 year old home, my linens would get a slightly stale smell after a while. I guess maybe those nice smelly things for cupboards/drawers may help?? I'm honestly too lazy to bother.
