Add one Cup of White Vinegar to one Cup of your vavorit detergent.
Yep that is it.
The Vinegar works as a natural deodorizer and can help with removing smells from pet accidents, stinky gym clothes or mildew smells from wet Towels. It is not only good for those smells but can also be used as a natural whitener instead of bleach.

In case, you have a Stain, you can add the Vinegar right on to the stain and wash immediately.
