I add clorox surface cleaner to mine.. although it's not meant for laundry.. Mr. Clean works too.. something that kills bacteria, and it doesn't take a lot.. just a splash. If it's something that I'm concerned about the baby coming in contact with I either wash twice, rinse it very well, or do 2 loads and put the items I'm concerned about in the second load. It doesn't bleach the clothes and kills the bacteria.. and bacteria is the reason it smells. It's almost always towels or rags that are the culprit. I try to hang anything wet over the side of the laundry hamper to dry until we can wash, but DH is non-compliant with this lol... he's apparently raging against the washing machine.. so to speak.

stop using the fabric softener,the fabric softener not only clings to the fibers to keep them soft it also locks in odors on thick absorbent towels. Wash your towels by themselves with hot water a couple times with little detergent and don't use fabric softener on them. The odors will eventually be released when all the residue comes off with the washings.
