Odors After Washing Pillowcases

Question: After washing pillowcases using the washing and chemical program our supplier provided for us, one load of pillowcases was mistakenly left inside the trolley until the following day. By the next morning the pillowcases already had a bad odor. What causes this?
-Rudi, Laundry Supervisor

 

 

Answer: Bad odors in linen are caused by bacterial growth. Linens that are wet, and are exposed to the air for several hours can start to smell musty. Generally, warm and humid conditions are an ideal growing environment for bacteria. Have the wash formula checked and be sure to use adequate amounts of chlorine (100 PPM). If you have the types of conditions that are ideal for mildew or other bacterial growth, try using a Bac-Stop type product that kills bacteria and continues to prevent growth even when linens are on the shelf.
