You can put some vinegar in a dish (try a tupperware with a lid on it, and cut a hole in the lid) and put it in the closet. That’s what I do with our hallway closet and it works wonders. It doesn’t add a scent, it just takes away that musty smell.

I was having trouble with clean towels that smelled musty when I’d use them to dry off after a shower.  I went online to try to figure out how to solve this problem.  I was using Tide liquid detergent for years.  I switched to the old fashiioned powdered Tide detergent and use hot water now instead of warm when washing towels, sheets, etc.  It works like a charm for me Laughing

The linens need to be absolutely dry before they are put away. You could use a moisture absorber . They sell it at WalMart. Prevents mildew and musty odor. I used one in my car when I spilled a vase of water.

make sure everything is completely dry before putting the items in the linen closet.
