Sour Smell in clothes
While cruising around the net searching for some phone batteries, I came across an ad for a product called "Smelly Wash". I was intrigued by the name, and, since I have been trying to help out a friend who has issues with her front loader and water that is very high in iron and other fragrant minerals, I thought I'd take a look.
32 years ago I bought our first washer and the plumber who came to install it recommended SA8. He told me he had taken apart many machines and most were gummed up with the fillers that are in many detergents. Liquid detergents were not as prevalent at the time.
I friend of a friend helped me locate an Amway distributor and I bought SA8 from her for a few years until we moved. In our next home, I found another distributor and continued using the SA8.
Meanwhile, we added three more daughters to the family and I never once used anything but SA8.
Year's later, an older friend's husband (quite ill with emphysema and with severe contact dermatitis, countless allergies, etc.) called me to borrow some SA8 because that was all she could use for his clothing, sheets, towels...
With each move, we have left washing machines behind because sometimes they were "selling" points. My current machine is a 6 or 7 year old Whirlpool frontloader and I have never had "smelly" issues.
I care for my cloth-diaper using granddaughter and have absolutely no problems washing her diapers. I use one small scoop of SA8, and on occasion, a booster if the load is large. That's it. Nothing smells...EVER...even if I accidentally leave a washed load overnight. Every load smells CLEAN, but with NO scent.
I will go to my grave using SA8. I have to give my clothes away because they just don't get beat-up by the machine nor the detergent.
