  • If it smells bad after sitting there I woul rewash them, but if they smell like I just wash them I throw them in the dryer.

  • I rewash it if is stinky. I try not to do that and waste the water and electric.

  • Depending on how long it was in the washer, If it wasn't too long ago, I'd go ahead and dry it. If it was in the washer for a while, I'd rewash it.

  • Depends how long it's been in there. I usually wash 3 times a day at least, so it would be only overnight at the very worst. Then it depends how hot the weather's been, if it's starting to smell a bit stale or if it's still nice and fresh and clean smelling.

  • Longer than 6 hours gets rewashed. I double-wash a lot of our clothes anyway so it doesn't bother me to rewash a load.

  • Depends on how long it sat & what the load consisted of. Some things I'll rewash, others I'll just go ahead & put on the line.
