  1. Question and Answer

    I bought two new pajama tops in November. I've only them a couple of months and since I have several pairs of pjs I rotate them out, so I haven't worn the shirts that much, but I've found that they have a certain smell - it's not body odor but it's like that smell of body oil or sweat. I've...

    The septic tank is backing up and I can't get it pumped for a couple days. In the meantime, the washer has some very smelly water sitting in it. What can I do to minimize the odor coming from the laundry room? And how will I get the stink out of the washer after it is cleared?
