SKU: N/A Category:


Tiny particles cause pesky malodors in fabrics when they get trapped in the tangle of fibers that make up your clothes. Even when stains are gone, those particles can linger and cause a frustrating smell which does not reflect the care you take of your clothes! Our laundry additive is designed to treat odors on a molecular level, deep within the fibers of your clothes and linens. In fact, the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive has long been a preferred solution by those with chemical sensitivities and fragrance allergies. It’s safe and efficient ingredients attach themselves to those tiny particles and neutralize the odors, so they are eliminated, not merely masked. OdorKlenz never relies on perfumes or chemical fragrances because we believe that clean has no smell!

Our advanced, mineral-based technology removes a broad spectrum of odors that other cleaners cannot. We use safe ingredients because we know how important it is to protect your family from harsh chemicals.

How to Use the OdorKlenz® Laundry Additive Powder

  1. Add 1 scoop (small load) or 2 scoops (medium or larger load) of the OdorKlenz Powder Additive, along with your regular (unscented) detergent to eliminate odors from your laundry.
  2. For HE and front load washers, add the additive along with your detergent in the designated detergent slot.
  3. For top load washers, first partially fill the tub with water. Next add your normal detergent, followed by the Powder Additive, agitate the powder in the tub with warm water and then you can add the clothing into the machine.

Applications and Tips

– Use wash cycles with more agitation
– Use warm water instead of cold
– Use an extra rinse at the end of the cycle
– If your machine dispenses laundry products at timed moments in the wash, make sure to deploy the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive during the main wash and agitation cycle, not in the prewash or final rinse cycle.

Do Not:
Use any prewash or presoaks cycles. Please do not use prewash or presoak cycles. If your machine has these types of cycles and you added the Additive to the washbasin, it will likely be removed from the wash before it has any time to interact with the odor source.
Allow the laundry additive to become folded inside of fabrics. Please do not have the additive in a situation where it does not freely move within the wash. Since our product does not behave like laundry detergent, it needs to be able to freely move within the wash to come into contact with the offending source odor.
Overloaded wash cycles. Overloading the washing machine makes it difficult for the product to work effectively. The level of contamination may be too much for the recommended dosage and the product may not be able to fully make contact with the source of the odor in the wash.
Use in combination with bleach, vinegar, or other additives.


Great for all washable fabrics

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this product safe to use on all my clothing?

Please follow fabric care instructions on the label. If the garment is water sensitive, you should use caution when using the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive. Our products needs water to help create the contact between our active materials and the offending odor source.

Is this product fragrance-free?

We have not added any perfumes or fragrances to our product. We believe that if the goal is to eliminate odors, you should not be adding odors or covering them up.

Can I use the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive to soak clothing followed by a hand wash?

Yes you can. We would recommend our liquid version of the product for this type of application as it disperses better in situations with lower agitation and takes longer to settle. The easiest way to do a soaking step is in a sink or washtub with warm water. You would want to make sure the size is big enough for the clothing. Start with the warm water, add the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive and mix to disperse. Then add the clothing and let it sit for 20-30 minutes and give it the occasional mix to suspend the product in the water. You can let it sit longer if you would like. Then after the soaking, the clothing can be rung out and then taken straight to the washer to do a normal wash cycle with detergent.

What is the difference between the powder and the liquid versions of the Laundry Additive?

The active ingredients are the same, the difference is just the dispersal material. In the liquid version, it is water, in the powder version it is soda ash. For soaking applications, we recommend our liquid version of the product.

Is this safe to use on my workout clothes to remove sweat odors?

Yes. Our product is very effective against body odors. It should be noted that some newer synthetic articles of clothing do pose more challenges for odor elimination.

Do I use the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive with my normal detergent?

Yes. We suggest a fragrance-free standard detergent.

Can the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive be used to remove fragrances and perfumes?

Yes. Depending on the severity/saturation of the perfume, a soaking step may be needed.

How effective will this be at removing chemical odors from new clothing?

It depends on if the clothing was intentionally treated with the chemical or not. Some fabrics have chemicals bonded to the fibers, often for wrinkle prevention or some other protection. These can be difficult to remove as they have effectively been engineered to be part of the garment. Other new clothing smells are a result of the shipping and packaging of the product and OdorKlenz Laundry Additive is effective against those odors.

Can I use this along with vinegar in my wash?

We do not recommend that as our OdorKlenz Laundry Additive will want to neutralize the vinegar effectively canceling the benefits they each offer out.

Will the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive remove musty smells from my front load washer?

Yes with repeated use the product will work on those odors. Additionally, we do make a Washing Machine Deodorizer for that application.

Can I use the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive in a High-efficiency (HE) washing machine?

Yes. With the wide range of options available on newer HE machines, please make sure that any pre-rinse settings are turned off. Some machines do a very quick rinse of the tub at the beginning of the cycle and we don’t want our product to be rinsed out before it has a chance to work. For more information and tips, please see or request our best practices sheet for this product.

    Works great removing smell from my sweaty athletic clothes.

  2. Duane F. (verified owner)

    Good bye smelly towels! Finally a product that eliminates that frustrating problem. After first use, my towels smell great!

  3. Ken Z.

    Product works just like it says. The towels are like new again.

  4. Christine E. (verified owner)

    This is a great product to get scents out of clothes.

  5. Amelia C. (verified owner)

    Works great removing smell from my sweaty athletic clothes.

  6. Xavier C. (verified owner)

    Easy to use. Extremely happy with the results. I used it on the Bedding for my dogs and it worked as expected. 

  7. Audrey D. (verified owner)

    OdorKlenz took the musty smell out of my clothes on the first washing. Awesome product!

  8. John G. (verified owner)

    Works great! Really gets the smell out unlike all the other main line stuff that just masks it with perfume (gag!).

  9. Rebecca L. (verified owner)

    It works, but it’s not a miracle worker. I have TERRIBLE FRAGRANCE SENSITIVITIES, so I have mainly used it to wash fragrances from clothing that I’ve ordered from ebay or thredup. My experience is that it does work, eventually. I’ve had to wash some items 3-4 times to get the smells out, but they eventually came out.

  10. Jerry W. (verified owner)

    It has worked well on our laundry. Things have a tendency to hold odors, especially synthetic fabrics. Odorklenz gets it out no problem.

  11. Laura L.

    Great Products!

  12. Lorna C. (verified owner)

    Great product! Works as advertised. I was never able to get the bad odor out of my husbands clothing, sheets, towels, even his dress clothes. Used this as directed and the first time-no odor

  13. Kay Z. (verified owner)

    My clothes came out of the wash smelling stinky…I could hardly stand to wear them. Vinegar rinses only helped a little. OdorKlenz left a very light, clean fragrance. So nice to have clean smelling clothing!

  14. Allyson K. (verified owner)

    I have purchased over and over again. Works great!

  15. Lionel R. (verified owner)

    Works great for rug that dog has accidents on!

  16. Elle B. (verified owner)

    It works! My daughter got a lot of gasoline on her outfit – cotton blue jeans and a black polyester/cotton sweatshirt. Per a tip from another website, I hung the smelly clothing outdoors for 24 hours before laundering. When i brought them in, I could tell that most of the gasoline had evaporated. Most. I then laundered them with Tide Unscented liquid laundry detergent (enough for a medium load in my HE front loader) plus one scoop of the OdorKlenz Laundry Additive Powder. I put my liquid detergent in its usual compartment, and tossed the scoop of dry OdorKlenz in the drum beside the two garments. Then I ran the load on my machine’s heavy duty cold water cycle set at a medium spin rather than the heavy duty high spin, because that is gentler on the fabric. The faded blue jeans and the black sweatshirt came out fresh and clean, and without any bleaching or color bleed.

    Highly recommend this product!

    By the way, the reason for not laundering things before airing out is that there is a slight risk of flames, especially if you use a gas powered drier near your laundry machine. If you can’t hang things outside, try using a presoak method before laundering. If you contact OdorKlenz customer service you might get/find tips on that.

  17. Kendall D. (verified owner)

    This stuff is worth it’s weight in gold. A little on the pricey side but it works great. Eliminated the urine smell from clothes and bed linen. So good not to smell the odor when you take clothing from dryer.

  18. Shay S. (verified owner)

    I purchased this product months ago after looking earnestly for something to help my detergent. I spend a good penny on my work out gear and sweat hard in them and needed them to smell fresh after being washed, this does just that!! Would definitely recommend!

  19. Jordan D. (verified owner)

    It gets rid of gym odors but I usually need to use more than the recommended amount says!

  20. Greg A. (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this powder for a few months as an additive to my regular (unscented) detergent on technical fabrics, where I’ve had the most trouble with sweat stink. I’ve found OdorKlenz to be pretty effective on all but the most entrenched smells, which require multiple washes. Certainly better than nothing — I no longer feel the temptation to throw away my favorite (expensive) sport clothes any more.

  21. JC P. (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this product for nearly a decade, long before it got onto Amazon. Takes mildew, gasoline, and any organic funk out of cloth (including the kind of funk a bearded man puts in after five days in the woods…). I rely on this, proven again and again. Years ago I spoke to the chemists in Florida who created this, nice guys. Glas to see this growing in popularity.

  22. DJ (verified owner)

    Tried OdorKlenz recently to remove the smell of artificial fragrance from some towels. The towels had been washed several times previously and still smelled, but OdorKlenz was successful in removing the odor!

  23. Jim W. (verified owner)

    Did the trick when nothing else would!

  24. L.A. Campbell (verified owner)

    This really removes perfumes! A pedicurist used lotion with a very strong and long-lasting fragrance which couldn’t get out of my pant legs (it took three days to get the smell out of my skin!). The fragrance didn’t come out in the wash but instead transferred to everything else in the load. I tried several odor-removing products which didn’t work on perfume. But OdorKlenz removed the perfume. So happy I didn’t have to throw away those clothes (I have asthma and allergies and they were just not wearable with all the fragrance.)

    A couple of items had to be washed twice, but the perfume is really gone after using OdorKlenz.

  25. Diane H. (verified owner)

    Best product I’ve found for removing odors in laundry!

  26. Kristy H (verified owner)

    We own a meat & seafood market. Odorklenz additive for laundry removed ALL tough odors from my husbands clothes that I have been struggling to remove. I am so amazed!

  27. Jacob P. (verified owner)

    I am a big fan of OdorKlenz. Found them before they were on Amazon and followed them here. This super fine powder will absorb the nastiest smells out of clothes. Sour towels, hunting clothing..scent free. No issue with clumping. I haven’t had a chance to use it on skunk yet, but will be ready when that strikes. I use it sparingly.

  28. John P. (verified owner)

    Works great My daughter’s cat like to use piles of clothes (in baskets or on floor) as his personal litter box sometimes when he feels like we are not giving him the attention he rightfully deserves. No matter how many times we would wash out clothes, we could not get rid of the smell of cat pee completely. It got to where I would not wear most of my wardrobe. To test this product, I tossed the worst offenders in the washer and one heaping scoop was enough to give my clothes a new lease on life. Price per load may seem like a bit much, but the product works, so I can’t argue against that fact. Worked fine in our front-load washer –just put it directly in the tub before adding clothes. We’d highly recommend it!

  29. Nicole O (verified owner)

    I’m loving this! We have hard water that causes a mildew smell on our towels and this has totally taken the odor out. We also used it on our dog’s bed and nothing else would work to get the smell out besides this! Can’t wait to get more

  30. Willy P. (verified owner)

    This product works perfectly on my son’s shirts.

  31. Claire Y. (verified owner)

    I can’t live without it! Summer is upon us and this is my only savior from major, repeat major sweat odor problems. I use it in the laundry. It works if used in line with instructions and it’s non-toxic for people, pets, and the environment. If the smell doesn’t come out with one scoop I use two and soak the laundry in it for about an hour prior to agitating the washing machine. It’s a natural powder mix of minerals. Think ground up rocks that need to be agitated to dissolve then add the detergent then the clothes, bedding, whatever stinks and run the machine as usual. I got spooked when the summer smell arose the other day and immediately rewashed the affected items. It worked. Thank heavens! I can’t stand stinky stuff around. It makes me sick. Please call the number on the container and explain your problem. They will guide you. This works and is NON TOXIC. It’s expensive but for me it’s worth every penny..but don’t tell them or they may raise the price!

  32. Helen M. (verified owner)

    My step son came over to do laundry and he complained his cloths always smell of a deep fryer (he works in fast food). I remembered I had just received my OdorKlenz powder and said he should try it. We couldn’t smell anything but clean when we took his cloths out of the washer. He also has very sensitive skin and it hasn’t caused him any discomfort at all. Over all I am pleased and very impressed! I will be ordering more.

  33. B Gunderson (verified owner)

    My son mixed his regular clothes with his wet pee sheets and it didn’t take long for ALL his clothes to be infected with the smell of urine. It was terrible. After trying every DIY solution, I came across this product and the smell has been removed from most items with just ONE WASH. I was SO relieved! I have an HE front-loader and it took a while to get the dose right but totally worth it. The first few doses ended up too thick and weren’t dissolving in the was, so I cleaned out the tray and started over. I’m concerned about potential build-up so I alternate loads (one with, two without additive) and regularly run the tub clean option. So far so good!

  34. Amy R. (verified owner)

    A+ Great

  35. Allyson K. (verified owner)

    Love it! It works great.. I will continue to keep purchasing. Thank you!!

  36. Anita R (verified owner)

    I used it and it WORKED. The sweater I purchased at a thrift store and the perfume smell in the sweater was awful. But I loved the sweater, so I got OdorKlenz after searching the net. Amazing it took the smell out and I can now wear the sweater. I am now going to do my wash cloths and see if it takes the odor out of them instead of throwing them in the rag bin. Good product and have recommended it on my live “365 days old people think about” on Facebook.

  37. Cheryl H (verified owner)

    Omg. I used it and I freakin luv it-works amazingly well!

  38. Verna H

    I love finding products that are non-toxic and unscented. This is exactly what I wanted.

  39. Lillie A. Johnson

    I love OdorKlenz. Before running across them on the Internet I have tried lots of natural free and clear detergent that didn’t do the job for my family. I find using the liquid additive gets my laundry fresher than other popular (natural) brand and I love that it is chemical free.

  40. Terry. Bissell

    Pricey but works great and has helped clean up my little boys cloth diapers

  41. Greg. L

    I teach yoga and participate in regular Hot Yoga classes. I accumulate my yoga clothes and wash together. I have found Odorklenz to be the only thing to eliminate the body odors.

    I mix the powder with water and add it to the cycle as the water is filling the tub. It does what it claims to do.

  42. Julia E. Lollis

    Great detergent for odors, but a little pricey to use on every load for me (college student ) 🙁

  43. Kendrick Sanders

    Cleans my clothes fairly well and does not irritate my skin in any way.

  44. Rosa B. (store manager)

    i have used OdorKlenz powder for a couple of years now and love it. It is the only product that REALLY gets rid of sweat smell on laundry, it does not mask smells it really removes them for good. I tried many options before i found out about this product and never went back to using anything else. Love it and highly recommend it to anyone frustrated with smelly laundry. 🙂

  45. Bernice Thompson

    A great product. love it. wish that I could purchase it locally to save on shipping

  46. Charles . Quarles

    I am so angry that it took me so long to discover this detergent, I love it’s natural and really helps me get the smell out of my towels

  47. Rhonda Malloy

    Our Misty cat loves to go in her new pet bedding. I was not about to go spend another 300 on a new bed. I tried this product because of a 15% coupon I found. Worked great to remove the urine smell and keep the fresh smell for weeks after washing.

  48. Terence Mauro

    Works great on sweat odors

  49. Edwin Raney

    Love this product and I love their customer service. Love-Love OdorKlenz

  50. Theresa Hittle

    Helped me get some chemical smells out on a new pair of black jeans. Took two washes but I don’t think there is anything in this world that could have done it in less time.

  51. Ruth Ogle

    Exponentially better than the seventh generation laundry detergent we used to buy.

  52. Midaglia G. (store manager)

    I just wanted to say thank you for improving quality of life at My household. When I stumbled across your product I was to the point of deciding it was time to discard some clothing because of smells that just would not go away.My daughter rides horses and all horse smells are gone. My other daughter is a dancer and her feet make her tights unbearable to be near. Thanks to OdorKlenz no more stinky feet smell. Lastly, my husband likes to smoke cigars and as you can imagine that odor is quite invasive.

  53. Sherri (store manager)

    “I was ready to throw away every bath towel in my house before I tried OdorKlenz. After using this product one time the odors in my towels were completely gone. I had tried every kind of detergent and fabric softener but nothing worked as good as this.”

    Sherri D.

  54. Sue (store manager)

    “My sisters-in-law and I trade off on doing their mothers laundry-This is absolutely the best product we have found for getting the urine smell out of some of her clothes. Other products required several washings and still was not satisfactory.”

    Sue O.

  55. Boyce (store manager)

    “I never knew what to use to get the “sweat” odor out of my husband’s and son’s work out clothes as well as their bath towels. OdorKlenz did the trick! I love the product!”

    Boyce W.

  56. Patrica M. (store manager)

    “My husband is a helicopter mechanic in the U.S. Army. Every day he comes home reeking of jet fuel! It doesn’t matter how many times I wash his work uniforms, or what I use, the smell just won’t come out. I can’t even cover it up with the smell from laundry soap or softener. So, I tried washing the uniforms in water with just the OdorKlenz Laundry, and the results were incredible! ….No more smell at all! I need more of this stuff to use on every load of laundry!”

    Patrica M.

  57. Terri A. (store manager)

    “As a Bikram Yoga teacher I have lots of sweaty yoga clothes at the end of each day. I had several items of clothes that I thought were headed for the trash because I could not get the odor out. I found you product online and thought it was worth a try. I was thrilled when all the clothes came out of the wash odor free. I love that Odorklenz does not add scent to the clothes. After trying the product I purchased a case of laundry liquid. I highly recommend this Odorklenz liquid to anyone who has smelly workout clothes.”

    Terri A.

  58. Sophie U. (store manager)

    The first thing I tried was the laundry powder because I had a load of wet towels that had been mistakenly left in wet in the washing machine for days – so the smell was pretty bad. I tossed in some OdorKlenz detergent, and the smell was totally gone when the load was done.
