Do you have a front load washer? If so, you may have noticed that it sometimes gets a mildewy smell. I do run the "clean" cycle about once a month to help with that smell, and I always leave the washer open after doing a load of laundry- but it often still has that not so nice smell. We've started throwing a fabric sheet in the washer after a load and it really does help!
