Tumble dryer smells bad

A tumble dryer gives you fresh and fragrant laundry in next to no time. But what should you do if things are very different and your dryer smells bad? Simple. Wipe the drum from the inside with a damp cloth and a vinegar or lemon-based cleaning solution. You’ll no doubt have vinegar and lemon in your kitchen, and they’ll help you banish bad smells in no time. These products work wonders and come in handy when your dryer smells bad.
