I don’t do smells. My mom has always said that, and the older I get, the more I agree. It’s not just any smell that I don’t “do.” It’s stinky smells like sour laundry or a musty car. Life’s too short to have to endure icky smells!

Check out these smell hacks. Some of them are silly, some are genius. Most of them require items you probably already have in your home.

And while I have your attention and since this isn’t mentioned in the hacks, can I tell you how to hack the smell of sour laundry? For whites, use one cup of chlorine bleach and hot water plus your regular detergent per load. For colors, use a cup each of borax and washing soda (not baking soda) plus your regular detergent per load. You can now breathe easy…the odor is gone!
