SmellyWasher Product Review

<a href="" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="" /></a>

We've all done it. Forgot clothes in the washer...again? Yeah, me too. Not to mention all of the disgusting items that make their way through my washing machine on a regular basis. Got teens? I do and they are boys that play sports and get all sweaty and dirty and gross. Have an elderly or poorly potty trained pet? Yup, sure do. My dog is eleven years old and with all of the excitement from our recent move and the added stress on her, she has had a few accidents lately. Potty training anyone? Why yes, I just finished potty training my daughter. I have had a few extra loads of soiled sheets and the like to do recently. Needless to say, my poor washing machine could use a good deep cleaning right about now. Plus, who knows what the previous owners of my home washed in it before we even got here. I don't really want to think about that. (Insert shudder here)

So this is where Smelly Washer comes in! One tablespoon in the washing machine or dishwasher eliminates the odors. A green clean way to get the job done. One jar of 24 treatments retails for $14.99 and you can find it at

Here is my first ever (and hopefully first of many) video review! Just ignore the part where my kid pops the door open at the end. LOL!

I did receive on bottle in order to do my review but I assure you my views and opinions are always my own.

You can find Smelly Washer on Twitter and on Facebook or visit their website at

Happy cleaning, ya'll!
