Linen closet odor

March 9, 2011 at 4:47 am in Home & Garden by WaveWatcher

I need to clean out my linen closet.  It has that smell of sheets and towels that haven’t been washed recently.  Is there any way to prevent that?  Do I need to launder ALL of them to get rid of the odor? 

I have to keep several sets of linens for guests that come visiting, but it’s not like they come every weekend.  Sometimes it’s months in-between.  And I need regular cotton and flannels.  I could probably get rid of a set or two, but would still need to keep several.  Right now, I end up washing the set I will use just before company comes.  Any ideas?
