“Oh, what’s that smell? Is it that person who just walked in?”
Bad body odour can affect anyone. And it can affect your precious clothing. So, if you’re looking for a way to get pungent smells out of your clothes, especially near the underarm areas, read further…
Check the care label
You wouldn’t want to ruin that ‘shirt that broke the bank’ by ignoring an important instruction - like whether it should be dry cleaned or what the water temperature should be. You might end up having to give it to your little sister!
Give it a l-o-n-g soak
Here comes the inexpensive part…White vinegar and water! Yes, vinegar on its own may smell a bit yucky, but it helps to neutralise and remove bad body odour. Add 1 cup of white vinegar to about 1 litre clean water and let your clothes soak in the solution for 2-3 hours. Then add to the wash with the recommended amount of washing powder and fabric softener. Fresh and fabulous.
For a quick fix – baking soda
You’re on your way out and you need to wear that sexy top, in, like…less than 2 hours. Make a paste with 2 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda and equal parts of water. Spread the paste on the smelly areas of clothes and leave for 20-30 minutes. Pop into the washing machine or wash by hand. Allow to air dry. If you’re really pressed for time, your hairdryer gallops to the rescue.
Extra tip: Crushing an aspirin and rubbing it on those stinky areas also helps to banish smells.
