How to Get Mildew Smell Out of Clothes
Modern detergents do a great job in loosening and removing dirt and stains from the surface of fabrics. Scientifically, they are called “surfactants” (surface active agents). But it is much harder for detergents to remove stains and odor molecules that cling to the fine fibers deep inside a fabric.
Do your children play sports? Hockey, soccer, lacrosse, football perhaps? After washing the laundry, the pungent sweat odor will still linger. And if you forget your “clean” laundry inside the washing machine, it will develop a nasty sour smell. Why? Because all the hidden organic dirt will start fermenting.
Typical laundering problems:
- Mildew stains because their roots are intertwined in the fabric.
- Organic stains from blood, grass or pets which are ground into the fabric.
- Pungent odors from perspiration, pets, vomit or smoke.
- Sour smelling towels or laundry left in the washing machine.
- Bugs like head lice, bed bugs, and dust mites.
What Can We Do?
- Repeatedly wash the laundry but that will weaken the fabric.
- Use a bleach (chlorine, ammonia, peroxide) but that may fade the colors, weaken the fabric, and incite skin sensitivities.
- Mask the odors with fragrances (fabric softeners or dryer sheets) but some people are sensitive to synthetic smells and the VOCs may be harmful to the lungs.
- Use a fabric freshener which works by trapping the odor molecules, however, instead of making it clean, it all remains inside the fabric.
These are less than perfect solutions. If you want your laundry really clean inside and out, and odor-free without toxic residues or perfumes that could cause asthma or allergies, you need an effective laundry prewash product – BioZap.

When to Deep-Clean with BioZap Laundry Prewash
Perspiration odors, particularly smelly athletic gear, sport jerseys and underwear, pajamas, hats, etc. (Note that human sweat itself is largely odorless until fermented by bacteria. Good laundering requires removing the odor molecules, as well as the bacteria.)
Sour smelling towels or laundry (when left in a locker or the washing machine).
House fire odors.
Soiled diapers or underwear.
Baby vomit on clothing.
Pet clothing or pet stains.
Organic stains (like blood or grass).
Head lice, bed bugs, and dust mites (wash all bedding, pillow cases, and blankets to remove and prevent. All hotels should use BioZap!)
Washable carpets (pet stains and dust mites).
