New Clothes During The Rainy Season


We always feel anxious during the rainy season because our clothes always have an unpleasant odor, which diminishes our confidence. Join EcoWash HCMC to discover ways to keep clothing dry during the rainy season.

Why do clothes often smell in the rainy season?

The primary cause of musty-smelling clothing is bacteria. During the rainy season, clothes are frequently dried in places that lack natural sunlight, have restricted drying areas, or have poor air circulation. This is the ideal environment for bacteria and mold to grow. The rate of bacterial reproduction at this time was double that of normal conditions.

Additionally, clothes that have been washed but are stored in a cabinet are not dry; mold is also the cause of unpleasant odors in clothing.

Clothes smell foul due to the high humidity

Effects of smelly clothes

  • Clothes that emit a foul odor diminish the wearer's confidence when communicating. Occasionally, the odor emanating from your clothing can make those around you feel uneasy.

  • When harmful bacteria and molds are present on clothing, they come into direct contact with the skin, causing allergies, redness, and itching in the area of contact.

  • Inhaling mold from clothing causes allergic rhinitis and sinusitis.

  • When hands come into contact with clothes contaminated with odor-causing bacteria, the bacteria can enter the body by adhering to the hands during eating and drinking, causing abdominal pain and diarrhea.

The musty smell is uncomfortable for users

Ways to help clothes always smell good in the rainy season

To help you feel more confident and at ease during the rainy season, we will discuss the following methods for deodorizing your clothing.

Use fabric softener

Experts recommend using fabric softener from reputable brands during the washing process. After rinsing the clothes with soap, soak them in fabric softener for 10 to 15 minutes to ensure that each fiber is evenly absorbed by the fragrance, thereby eliminating odors and preventing the growth of mold and bacteria.

Use essential

In addition to fabric softener, essential oils can be used to deodorize clothing. Try the following two methods to obtain unexpected outcomes:

  • Method 1: You can use a few drops of essential oil to rinse your clothes, then let the essential oil soak into your clothes for about 10–15 minutes.
  • Method 2: Use essential oils to dry clothes. Put a few drops of essential oil on a small cloth and put them together in the drying step to save the scent effectively.

Dry clothes

Because prolonged rain and wind will render your home's space incapable of meeting drying needs, a dryer is another option. In wet, rainy, and windy weather, the dryer will help your clothes dry quickly and effectively eliminate some types of bacteria and mold.

Check clothes

Before placing the clothes in the closet, we should ensure that they are completely dry to prevent them from developing a musty odor when placed in a closed environment. Additionally, avoid placing the cabinet in a humid area to prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria and mold.

After brewing coffee, do not immediately discard the grounds; instead, save them, allow them to air-dry, and then store them in a small cloth bag. Place the bag in the closet to eliminate odors, including musty odors, from the kitchen.

Baking soda

Using baking soda in the corners of the cabinet helps eliminate the musty odor on the clothes that is caused by the humid weather.

Use professional laundry services

Utilizing a professional laundry service is also an ideal way to keep clothes smelling fresh during the wet season. Because they utilize specialized laundry detergents and contemporary washing and drying systems to provide customers with comfort and peace of mind.
