My hand towels had a musty odor to them before I became a Melaleuca customer five months ago. I read about the Sol-u-mel taking out odors so next laundry load of towels, I poured a capful into the wash. I was amazed at how all the yucky smell came out and my towels smelled fresh! No need to buy new ones because these were like new again! The lemon scent is the BEST one!
