Why you have smelly sheets? What causes smelly sheets? Why do bed sheets smell musty?
Bacteria and fungi are usually the source of musty odors. And, bacteria and fungi prefer a damp environment. Closet may not be a great place to store your bedding unless it is well ventilated. Besides, cotton is hygroscopic, thus your cotton sheets can absorb water from the air.
