Q&A: How can I indoor air-dry my sweaters without them having a bad odor afterwords?

Question by roger h: How can I indoor air-dry my sweaters without them having a bad odor afterwords?
I indoor air-dry my sweaters and jeans, but after they’re done drying, a strange odor comes off of them. The smell is really bad and noticeable, also I don’t want them to shrink so I don’t put them in the dryer.

When my daughter visits and does my laundry, I noticed the same thing. The clothes smell soured. I realized she hangs them the way I do, but she crowds them all together. Also, she hung some in the closet while wet. They couldn’t get any air circulating to dry them. The
ones in the closet didn’t get any air either. They should be put in the dryer for 10 min. or so, just to get the wrinkles out. Hope this helps!

    I air dry lots of my clothes on hangers placed in doorways of rooms with heat vents near by or a shower rod. Try rolling the sweater up in a towel to get as much water out of it.
