I am totally baffled as to why there are a few pair of jeans in our household that smell after washing and drying. 2 pairs are mine and one is DS- all came from JC Penny at different times within the last year. They almost have a soured smell and I have tried different detergents, baking soda, and vinegar.
They smell bad directly from the wash and if you dry them the smell isn't as bad but if you wear them it "heats" the smell.
I have never left them in the wash or dryer to sour and no other items have that smell.
Does anyone have a solution to help eliminating the odor or had this problem themselves?
