It is advisable that you wash off any wet clothes immediately rather than stacking them in a laundry basket or washing machine. Stacking  may result in mud scars turning permanent, foul smell and color transfer if the garment is new. Rinsing immediately  will help you get rid of all the dirt, germs and foul smell at once.

2) Scented Detergents
