Question for all your knowledgeable folk -
I only have cold water in my laundry room. If I want a hot water wash, I boil water on the stove, or drive in to the laundromat (which is really pricey!). 99% of my laundry is just fine with a cold water wash. EXCEPT for my stocking socks. I wear compression hosiery knee socks every day, in clogs, and they get smelly as hell. Foot odor supreme.
The cold water wash does very little to reduce that. Boiling pots of hot water is a pain in the patoot, and driving in to town requires money (and seems ridiculous for such a small load).
Anybody have any good ideas for stench reduction? Vinegar in the wash? Any other ideas for me that I can do every time I do laundry?
I also put Gold Bond foot powder in the clogs, which helps a little bit, but I really need a good way to reduce the smell in/on the stockings themselves, as they are world class awful after a few hours, regardless of how clean my actual foot is.
