5 Tips for Keeping Clothes Fresh and Odor-Free This Monsoon Season

5 Tips for Keeping Clothes Fresh and Odor-Free This Monsoon Season

Rains are a welcome relief from the scorching summer heat, but with all its charm comes the challenge of never-drying clothes and the fear of musty wardrobes.
Don’t fear the wash cycle, when you can opt for proper care – way easier and quicker! 
Here are some practical tips to help you maintain a clean closet this monsoon. 
1. Regular Maintenance 
Keeping clothes odour-free during the monsoon requires regular care. Wash your clothes more often to prevent sweat and moisture from settling in. Use an antibacterial fabric conditioner to eliminate bacteria that cause bad odors. 
2. Proper Drying Techniques 
Drying clothes can be tough with constant rain and lack of sunlight. Set up an indoor drying rack in a well-ventilated area, preferably near a fan or a window. Use the washing machine’s spin cycle to remove excess water and speed up drying. Prints and cotton fabrics, in particular, need plenty of space to air out and stay fresh. On sunny days, take advantage of natural sunlight to disinfect and freshen your clothes. Ironing can also help kill any mold spores that might have developed. 
3. Dehumidifiers and Fans 
Humidity is the main culprit for musty-smelling clothes during this season. Adding to it the desi monsoons, keeping the space dry is important. Keep a fan running over the rack to circulate air and speed up the drying process. If you can, use a dehumidifier to keep the humidity levels in check, especially in areas where you store your clothes. 
4. Proper Storage Solutions 
Storing clothes correctly can prevent mold and mildew growth. Use breathable storage bags made of cotton or linen instead of plastic to allow air circulation and prevent moisture buildup. Prints and delicate cotton fabrics will benefit from being stored in these breathable bags to maintain their freshness and vibrancy. You can also place silica gel packs in your wardrobe and drawers to absorb excess moisture. 
Make sure clothes are completely dry before storing them, especially prints and cotton fabrics, which can easily develop musty smells if not properly dried. 
5. Tackling Odors 
Despite your best efforts, clothes can still develop a damp smell. To tackle this, add a few drops of essential oils like lavender or tea tree oil to your washing routine. These oils have antibacterial properties and leave your clothes smelling fresh. This can be particularly helpful for cotton fabrics, which tend to absorb and retain scents more than synthetic materials. 
By following these simple yet effective strategies, you can keep your clothes fresh, dry, and odor-free throughout the rainy season. Embrace the monsoon, knowing your wardrobe is well taken care of. Your prints and cotton pieces will stay vibrant and fresh, ready to brighten any rainy day!
