Moisture odor from clothing
It has happened to all of us that when we choose a direct garment from the closet, or take the children’s already clean uniforms out of the laundry area, the clothes have a marked musty smell.
This occurs when we store it and it is not yet completely dry, or when we leave it in a place without ventilation. For those times when time is of the essence, we bring you these “dry” solutions.
- Steam. The big chains of stores use this trick when they take the merchandise out of the boxes or containers just before displaying them, curious, isn’t it? All you need is a steam bath for your clothes, either with the iron or simply by opening the hot water tap in the shower. In just a couple of minutes you’ll notice how the musty smell literally evaporates.
- Another tactic is to mix a little baking soda, the household cleaner par excellence, in 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup water. Place the solution in a spray container and spray on the front and back of garments that have a damp smell. Let them dry for 5 minutes and ready to get dressed!
- Alcohol. No, we are not referring to the isopropyl in the first aid kit, but to one of the most concentrated drinks available: vodka. Take a cotton handkerchief and imprint it lightly. Afterwards, just run it quickly through damp smelling garments, especially jeans, thick fabric trousers and jackets. Calm down! This aroma dissipates very quickly.
- Cold. Of all, this is the longest form, but if you have half an hour you can apply it without problem. It’s the old trick of “freezing” clothes in a bag. Remember, when you take it out, you’ll have to air it before you put it on.
