If you have kids, especially teenage boys, you have probably discovered how smelly their laundry hampers can be. Add smelly laundry, and it can be quite the bad experience for the poor person doing the laundry. It can be fixed!
Sprinkle the inside of the laundry hamper with baking soda. The baking soda won’t harm the clothing or affect the laundry in the washing machine.
If the hamper has a liner, throw it into the washing machine with the laundry or towels. If the liner is a bright color – such as a purple liner, make sure you wash it a couple times on its own so the color doesn’t leech onto the laundry.
