"Stinky Laundry"

About a year ago, I was shopping at the Ballard Designs Outlet (Ballard's Backroom) in Atlanta and came across this wall mounted towel bar.  Nothing fancy, just a wrought iron rack to hang towels.

It was deeply discounted and I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but for the price I figured it could come in handy for something.  It lived behind by guest bathroom door for a while but really served no real purpose.  That is, until about a month ago.  I'd been noticing this mildew smell in my laundry hamper.  It was driving me nuts.  No amount of laundry detergent, bleach or my favorite new product, Purex laundry crystals....

...seem to get it out.  These things are fabulous by the way.  They make doing laundry so much fresher.

Anyway, my Mom asked me if I was putting wet towels in the hamper.  Duh!  Why didn't I think of that?  So, I decided to move the rack to the master linen closet next to the hamper. 

 

Now it has become the perfect place to hang all of those wet white wash cloths that were the culprits.  By the time I get to the fifth bar, towel #1 is completely dry. 



No more stinky laundry!  Thanks to this simple swing arm towel rack, all is right with the world (ok, at least my laundry).  Just thought I'd share in case you have similar challenges.  Sometimes it's the little things....
