Run a full wash cycle with 1 cup of chlorine bleach on hot water. Do not put any laundry into the washing machine. This will clean the inside of the machine.
Place 2 cups of white vinegar in with a load of laundry that has strong odors, such as smoke or mildew. Wash it on as hot of a water setting as the garments will allow.
Run the laundry through another cycle with your normal laundry detergent. Add some liquid fabric softener according to label instructions.
Line dry or machine dry the laundry.
