Guest beds that are not often used can end up smelling musty. If you like to keep your guest beds made up, keep the sheets smelling fresh by placing a fabric softener sheet under the blanket or bedspread until the bed is needed. When you do your periodic mattress cleaning, exchange the old sheet for a fresh one.
That sounds like a good idea. I never thought of that will tell my mother about it. She wonder how she could keep her sheets smelling fresh. After they have been on the bed awhile since she don't have much company.
This is for a smell not actually making it cleaner!
I have used fabric softener in my chest of drawers. Blanket or bedspread would be a idea.thanks
Many people cannot physically tolerate fabric softener sheets. Although I don't like musty smells, I would find the smell and chemicals in fabric softener sheets MUCH more difficult to tolerate.
