I did something similar to this in GA, the water there was horrible and the towels always smelled. But I just threw baking soda in the wash (we had a front loader) and vinegar in the dispensing unit with the detergent. Most of the time it only took one wash. If it doesn't take just one wash I would suggest soaking the towels in the vinegar in the wash for an hour or so and then continuing the wash, in an effort to save water.
I never tired tea tree/melaleuca before in the wash, it would make sense since it is an anti-fungal / antibiotic .

I use it a lot as well, I have tea tree/melaleuca (that's the name it goes under with the oils I use) in my deodorant and a lotion I mix with a few other oils. I also use it in my cleaner in my spray bottle for an all purpose cleaner. It's one of those all around great oils!
