Q: My washcloths have a sour smell even after laundering. How do you eliminate the odor?
Tracie Skaurud, Fargo, ND
Wash them in hot water at full-load setting. Use the normal amount of detergent, plus 1/2 cup washing soda (sodium carbonate); add 1/2 cup baking soda to the rinse cycle. Put cleaned cloths in the dryer immediately. You may have to repeat several times. In general, avoid stuffing huge loads into your machines--they won't wash or dry properly.
