How Do I Get The BUTT Smell out of my....

Dryer? I left a load of towels and a fluffy blanket in the washer overnight then when I dried them everything smelled like butt. I have the load going again in the washer but my dryer stinks like butt. Literally, can I spray some glade on a baby wipe or something?

  • Have your tried dryer sheets? Or washing it out with a washcloth? I am really not sure but wanted to help.

  • I agree about the vinegar, just leave the rag in there for an hour and see if it helps. Crunchy-hippy-granola type moms
