The Truth About Leaving Laundry in the Washing Machine Overnight

We've all been guilty of this at some point or another, but here is what you need to know about leaving your wet washing to sit overnight... and what to do about it.

We've all been there – we've headed to bed or gone out of the house and forgotten that we've left wet laundry in the washing machine, tumble dryer, or basket. Whether it's been a couple of hours or an entire day/night, we sit and try to decide if it needs to be re-washed or if it's okay to go out to dry. After all, we don't want our clothes and linen bedding to be smelling and developing mildew especially when it's something you have to sleep in all night. It's also a waste of water and electricity to unnecessarily put on a load of washing for a second time.

Below, we take a look at how long you can leave your wet laundry in the washing machine before you need to give it another wash and what you need to do if it has been left for too long and has begun to smell.
