2. Properly Dry Your Clothes After Wash:

The key to odor-free clothes starts with a fundamental step – drying them promptly after washing. Moist environments become breeding grounds for unwanted smells, but a proactive approach can make all the difference.

Ensure your clothes receive ample ventilation and sunlight during the drying process. This not only eliminates moisture but also prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Expert Insight: Investing in a good-quality clothesline or rack can enhance the drying process and contribute to long-lasting freshness.

3. Use Fabric Conditioner:

While care should be taken in drying and storing the clothes, you can further enhance your laundry routine by introducing Fabric conditioners. Fabric conditioners add a delightful scent to your clothes and also protect the cloth’s fibers and keep them soft and comfortable. 

At Ethiek, the Ethiek Bio Fabric Conditioner is our favorite. It differs from other fabric conditioners in the sense that it is made with 100% natural ingredients, which do not harm your clothes or your skin even in the long run. The carefully picked fragrance option of Lime keeps your clothes feeling fresh and Juniper acts as mood lifter.

Can I use Naphthalene balls in all types of closets?

Absolutely! Naphthalene balls are versatile and safe for use in all types of closets, including wooden, plastic, and metal ones. Ensure proper placement for optimal results.

How often should I replace Naphthalene balls?

Replace Naphthalene balls every 2-3 months or when their characteristic odor diminishes. This ensures continuous protection against moisture and odour.
