We are entering the warm months and it is really important to practice Shaucha in regards to our clothes. Here is a way to clean your clothes that will strip away the mildew smell.
1. Wash your items in hot water with a cup of vinegar.
2. Then, wash them again in hot water with a half-cup of baking soda (you might also try Borax or OXY Clean).
3. Dry your clothes completely in the dryer (or hang depending on the item).
***Do not add laundry detergent to either wash cycle.
I am sure your fellow Ashtangis will greatly appreciate this simple act and be happy to practice next to you. 😉
Nothing is worse than practicing Ujjayi breathing next to someone who’s body order or clothes are over powering.
