How to REALLY Wash Out Odors

Now, I take a fair amount of pride in my ability to remove stains from clothes. But odors have consistently given me a run for my money.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.





Hot Yoga.


What do those things have in common?

They make my laundry hamper and home smell like half a disaster. And don’t get me started on, what can only be described as, the longest night-time potty training saga EVER.

These are just the stinky basics of my laundry situation. A few weeks ago my family went to Yellowstone. Two days ago I discovered a plastic grocery bag full of...wait for it...wet socks.

Were they still wet? OF COURSE.

Did they smell delicious? LOLOLOLOL. NO.

Now, I take a fair amount of pride in my ability to remove stains from clothes. But odors have consistently given me a run for my money. My workout clothes have a legitimate expiration date because I sweat like a beast and at a certain point, they just reek. Even freshly laundered. (Yes, I’ve tried all of the secret ninja tricks on Pinterest.)

So when the folks at Nehemiah Manufacturing Company asked us to give their Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator a try, I thought to myself “OH, BRING IT FEBREZE.”


The timing was perfect because, a little one, who shall remain nameless, may or may not have had a night time accident in bed. And then stashed his shorts somewhere other than the hamper.

So I compiled my most challenging laundry load ever—work out clothes, stinky pajamas, and some camping attire that had been marinating for a minute.

Here’s how Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator works—you use your favorite detergent, and simply add the Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator to your load based on how stinky your laundry is. Mine was pretty stinky, so I went for half a capful.


I have a high-efficiency washer, so I just added it right to the clothes inside the machine and set it for a normal wash cycle. (Normally, I’d put these clothes on a sanitation/high extraction cycle. But I thought we should give the Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator a real test.) Here's how it works.

The clothes came out of the dryer smelling like fresh clothes! NOT A FLOWER.

I could not stop sniffing. The same crazy magic that my trusty Febreze spray works on my mattresses and soft surfaces, is now coming to a laundry room near you.

Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator is a laundry additive and just tackles the odors in your laundry—smoke, sweat, soil, pet smell, mildew, the list goes on.


Think of the possibilities! I have a dog bed that is begging for the Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator treatment…
