HELP !!!!!! I bought 20 pieces of plus size clothing at a garage sale recently only to now find out that they smell like cigarette smoke BAD !!!!
I have washed them several times. Is there a way you know to get this SMELL out of them ??? Does Febreeze work longggg term?? I have used it on other items.. but I think I will have to soak these clothes in it to get rid of the smell. YUCK !!!!
Can anyone help me??
My MIL gave me an afaghan that she made. It stunk to high Heavens, too!! Of course, I really didn't want it, but my husband insisted that we keep it. I put it in a plastic blanket zippered bag along with two dryer sheets, closed it up and waited about 2 weeks: NO SMELL! absolutely no smell whatsoever. Worked like a charm and I din't have to wash it or anyhing--maybe that would help too! good luck!
~almost anything can be bought, but health destroyed is beyond retrieval~:
SOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo...work with whatcha got and be thankful!!!!!!
thank you for the great ideas.
I am glad you mentioned the clothes would not smell like vinegar... I thought heck... that is trading one evil for another.
I was told in another site to hang them outside in the rain too.
I will give them all of try. Thanks again.
