My SO tried to do laundry when I was gone for a few days, he must have gotten lazy and left my clothes in the washer...WET.... now they smell like mildew, I tried to rewash them, but nothing seems to work.
Got any ideas?

I find that some baking soda, or something like oxy clean along w/ EXTRA detergent usually does the trick. My SO has a habit of leaving the clothes on our basement floor, which gets wet if it happens to rain. So i have dealt w/ mildew smell before. Hot water works best if your clothes can handle it. My mom says vinegar works well too, but i don't know if it will smell vineger-ish or not. My SO said he once washed them with dish detergent, & he said that got the smell out. There's probably a few things that will work nicely.
